More information 


Environmental Engineering Master’s degree combines technological, analytical and management aspects of the environmental protection. Acquired knowledge and skills of environment quality assessment, application of modern environmental technologies and formed systematic approach provides the graduates with excellent opportunities of finding their place in the contemporary labour market. The programme was updated implementing the project funded by the EU structural support, which increased its internationality.
The Master + model offers either to masterpiece in the chosen discipline by choosing the Field Expert track or to strengthen the interdisciplinary skills by choosing the Interdisciplinary Expert track emphasising managerial skills or a choice of a different competence to compliment the chosen discipline and achieve a competitive advantage in one’s career.

Top reasons to study at KTU:

1. Department’s researchers investigate application of advanced plasma, nano- and biotechnologies in environmental engineering.

2. Close partnership with European Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Water Technology (WETSUS), Jurby Water Tech, Regional Waste Management Centers.

3. Master+ model offers either to masterpiece in the specialisation or to strengthen managerial/interdisciplinary skills by choosing individual set of competencies required for career.

_“Environmental issues are relevant to our company; therefore it has established the environmental centre. The industry needs universal specialists, who have knowledge of physics, chemistry and technologies, understanding of operation of the equipment for emissions, waste water, water treatment, comprehend the causality of processes. Our company uses on-line monitoring devices; therefore it is important to have knowledge of data processing. It is very important for the graduates to have a common understanding of the legal system.”_– AB “Achema”, Head of Innovation and Advancement Centre, Andrejus Šostakas.

“The knowledge, acquired during environmental engineering studies, is useful all the time, whether they are in the area of ambient air, waste or waste water treatment technologies. Environmental protection is a very wide area and environment components are closely related – when one of them is impacted, some form of this impact is also transferred to another one. Therefore systematic approach is important for assessment of reasons, consequences, possible technological solutions and required legal regulation of environmental pollution.” – Head of Water Policy Division at the Ministry of Environment of the Republic of Lithuania, Irmantas Valūnas.
