After completion of the MSc programme in Chemical Engineering and Water Treatment, the graduate specialising in Water Treatment
• has a comprehensive understanding of the BAT and future water treatment technologies, covering advanced oxidation and various separation methods
• is able to demonstrate a broad knowledge in process and environmental analytics and monitoring
• has adopted the principles of sustainability in the water treatment
• is able to demonstrate a critical understanding of relevant theories and techniques, problem-solving skills, and ability to independently use knowledge, equipment and tools for the design and development of practical water treatment applications.
• is able to work with others in task-orientated groups participating and interacting in the group in a productive manner
• is able to logically think through a problem and solve it.
The students of the Master’s Programme in Chemical Engineering and Water Treatment specialise either in Chemical and Process Engineering or in Water treatment.
The Master's degree (120 ECTS) consists of core studies, specialisation studies, minor studies and free elective studies. The Master's Thesis and Seminar is included in the specialisation studies.
This MSc is also available as a Double Degree Programme for the students of the partner universities of LUT. The Double Degree Programme has a separate degree structure of its own.
