The main goal of the programme “Environmental Innovation Technologies” is to prepare competitive, highly qualified specialists in environmental engineering field who are able to focus on a) current environmental engineering technologies and its innovations and b) are able to apply those innovations in different enterprises and institutions in the specific situations in order to minimise environmental impact and save resources and c) are able to create appropriate innovations.

This programme offers possibilities to practically use knowledge in environmental engineering, which will be obtained from theoretical courses and specialization courses with an emphasis on computer graphics based designing, prototyping and the development and application of different sensor systems, both for pollution measurements and assessment of energy efficiency and other purposes. Aspects of the second use of recycled materials plays an important role in studies. In addition, several internships in which students participate will provide a real experience in their next profession. As a bonus to be assessed by the future employers are the general education courses in areas such as business and project management, applied communication and others to make it easier for the young professional to enter the business environment.
