Introduction

Growing awareness of the human impact on the environment has convinced most governments of the need to prevent air, water, and soil pollution. Increasingly, remediation of contaminated sites is becoming a priority target. Consequently, there is a strong and ever-increasing demand for specialists trained in pollution prevention and remediation. This Joint Erasmus Mundus program addresses these needs by educating a new generation of environmental scientists and engineers who can provide adequate and state-of-the-art environmental technology and engineering solutions to tackle complex, multidisciplinary environmental issues.

Successful graduates will have acquired a comprehensive knowledge of:

  • the nature and severity of environmental pollution;
  • the way polluted water, waste, gas, soils, and sediments can be treated;
  • the way ecosystems and the atmosphere can be protected from pollution;
  • 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:

  • searching scientific information;
  • conducting scientific research in the field of environmental technology and engineering;
  • reporting their findings by means of scientific reports and papers;
  • communicating effectively in English and transferring knowledge to both the scientific and non-scientific world through oral presentations and media communications.
