Succesful graduates will have acquired a comprehensive knowledge of:

  1. the nature and severity of environmental pollution;

  2. the way polluted water, waste, gas, soils and sediments can be treated;

  3. the way ecosystems and the atmosphere can be protected from pollution;

  4. the way to prevent environmental pollution through resource management and application of re-use technologies.

They will be able to develop, design and apply technologies for the prevention and remediation of environmental pollution. In addition, they should be capable of:

  1. searching scientific information;

  2. conducting scientific research in the field of environmental technology and engineering;

  3. reporting their findings by means of scientific reports and papers;

  4. communicating effectively in English and transferring knowledge to both the scientific and non-scientific world through oral presentations and media communications.

Trained graduates will be fully prepared to fulfil executive functions in international institutions (government, universities, non-governmental organisations, etc.) and private companies that deal with either application and development of pollution prevention, remediation and engineering techniques or regulatory decision-making. 

Environmental technology and engineering is – more than other disciplines – based on international cooperation in business and research. Therefore, the approach of IMETE qualifies the students for a professional career.


The students study in three universities, the programme language is English and students gain multi-cultural experience with other students from European and non-European countries, in particular also students from developing countries and countries in transition.
