PROGRAMME

The IMETE programme takes two years to complete and starts yearly in September at UCT in Prague. In February of the next year students move to Delft, the Netherlands, where they can choose between two tracks, "Ecotechnology" and "Advanced wastewater treatment technologies". An optional internship can be completed in Summer. In September students move to Gent, Belgium to choose between "Air" and "Soil" tracks in the 3rd semester. Finally, in February of the 3rd year, students start their thesis research at one of the three academic institutions or at an associated partner.

ELECTIVE Internship (6 weeks optional)

July Year 2 - August Year 2

Internship work is an optional part of the IMETE Master Programme. The aim of an internship is to obtain professional experience. The placement should therefore be in a professional, not in an academic, working environment. Valid placements would be in companies, and governments. Research institutes may be acceptable, but academic institutes and universities not. Internships/placements should take place within the Consortium. A mobility outside of the Consortium should be regarded as an exception to the rule

Semester 3 Ghent University, Gent, Belgium
September - January

Track "Air"

  • Advances & Trends in Environmental Technology

  • Basics of Process Engineering

  • Basics of Control Engineering

  • Bioresource Recovery Processes and Engineering

  • Subscribe to course units from the master programmes at Ugent (excluding internships or other integration course units)

 

Track: “Soil”

  • Advances & Trends in Environmental Technology

  • Basics of Process Engineering

  • Basics of Control Engineering

  • Bioresource Recovery Processes and Engineering 

  • Pedology

  • Soil Remediation

  • Subscribe to course units from the master programmes at Ugent (excluding internships or other integration course units)

Semester 4  Main partner or one associated partner
February - August

Master dissertation

The Master Dissertation is an integrated part of the IMETE Master Programme and is credited at 30 ECTS. All students are doing thesis work during their last semester in one of the 3 IMETE Consortium partners or IMETE associated partners.

Examples of Master Dissertation topics researched in 2011-2015, are:

  • Anamox bacteria in wastewater treatment systems

  • Methane oxidizing and sulphate reducing bacterial consortia in deep sea sediments

  • Oil spill electroremediation 

  • Advanced oxidation processes for the removal of pharmaceutical residues in water

  • Life Cycle Assessment: Coupling Environmental Damage and Human Health Benefits Caused by Pharmaceutical Production Processes
