Environmental Sciences and Engineering
The studies have the following bases:
- advanced scientific and theoretical knowledge: the guarantee of broad, timeless knowledge necessary for interdisciplinary and innovative approaches.
- highly practical content: numerous projects in laboratories equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, enabling the development of practical know-how.
- direct and continuous contact with the world of research, ensuring optimal transfer of the most up-to-date knowledge and techniques.
- flexible courses, with emphasis given to a wide choice of multidisciplinary minor subjects.
In addition, lectures in Human and Social Science (SHS) allow students to step back and develop a critical view on social, ethical and environmental implications.
