The Environmental Engineering master’s degree program; aims to train students in the treatment of domestic and industrial waste water, the treatment of atmospheric pollution and the management and treatment of solid waste. They will be capable of sizing and managing the corresponding depollution facilities, in addition to understanding the interactions of pollutants in the aquatic and atmospheric environment, their fate and their impact on the environment (water, air and soil). They will also be sufficiently equipped to undertake studies to quantify pollution from domestic and industrial discharge. The duration of study for this master is two years. The principles research themes:
- Air pollution
- Wastewater treatment processes
- Solid and hazardous waste management
- Aquatic resources and groundwater management
This master’s degree also aims to give students with a bachelor’s degree other than in environmental engineering, the necessary foundations and knowledge required to embark on a professional life in environmental engineering. Application is open to students with a bachelor’s degree in process engineering. After completing the master’s program and obtaining the diploma, students have the opportunity of studying for a doctorate in environmental engineering.
Training in environmental engineering introduces students to research and higher education activities in the field of environmental engineering, also students become fairly autonomous at the end of their training during the two years of the Master’s program, through an increasing evolution of self-study teaching. In addition to acquiring knowledge and techniques in environmental engineering, students will be able to:
- Analyze the technical, economic, social and environmental issues involved in a complex situation.
- Respond to environmental issues and design preventive, corrective or remedial solutions.
- Validate the conformity of solutions and their implementation, according to the requirements of industries, municipalities and government agencies.
- Evaluate long-term socio-economic and environmental impacts when selecting a solution.
