International Master’s Degree in
Environmental Engineering – Earth Resources Engineering (ERE)


All activities are in English. The master’s duration is two years: core modules (1st year), common for all students, aim at consolidating fundamentals and improving capabilities in the areas of Environmental Engineering; in the 2nd year students can focus on “Environment, resources and circular economy”: material and energy flows through industrial systems and connections between operators within the “industrial ecosystem” will be tackled from a systemic point of view.

Whilst looking at their global impact from the outset, the programme will focus on: Earth resources management; Sustainable development; Resource efficiency and resource savings; Rational exploitation of oil and gas reservoirs; Water resources; Pollution prevention; Waste prevention; recycling; waste and bio-waste valorisation; Reclamation and health.

Environmental engineering will be at the heart of any transition to a circular economy. Equally crucial will be the skill of understanding how individual activities interact within a bigger, interconnected world.
