Studies of Environmental Management and Cleaner Production are based on interdisciplinary learning, which is required in the modern society. During studies real environmental problems of the companies are solved in cooperation with industrial companies, as well as practical applied tasks for improvement of efficiency of their environmental protection are performed. In 2012 this study programme received the international environmental award "Energy Globe" for preparation of preventive environmental management specialists for companies and public institutions and in 2013 it was recognised as the best engineering study programme in Europe for preparation of sustainable industrial development specialists. Effective combination of mandatory and additional study modules provides students with a possibility of individual study plans, enabling acquisition of competences in the areas of sustainable industrial development, environmental protection, policy and economics. Graduates of this programme successfully work at industrial companies (environmental specialists, managers of departments or companies), public institutions (ministries, agencies) and consultation companies.

Career opportunities

_ "Graduates of this programme have a well-developed systematic-logical thinking, much practical and latest theoretical knowledge of technologies used in the modern industry and their environmental impact. The ability of such specialists to see the situation from various angles – technological, economic, environmental and social – is fascinating and inspires trust in their professional skills. I think these specialists are welcome not only in the industry, but also in the business and public institutions"_ – AB "Freda", Production and Technical Manager, Virginijus Brundza.

"During my Master degree studies I learned to apply systematic approach while solving various environmental issues. I deepened my knowledge of the systems theory, how it can be applied in practical work at the company. I successfully apply the acquired knowledge in everyday activities. This study programme is valuable not only for environmental specialists, but also for entrepreneurs, managers, because acquired knowledge and practical skills are oriented to the enhancement of the competitiveness of business while solving various business issues using environmentally friendly methods (cleaner production, environmental management, lifecycle assessment, etc.). I can state that lecturers of this study programme are specialists in their areas, who can interest and involve students both in the study processes and in the search of practical application for the knowledge; they constantly improve their qualification in local and international projects, participate in international conferences and various business and environmental events. I am glad that we have not lost connection with the programme’s lecturers even after the graduation, we are invited to the conferences, meeting and continue our mutually beneficial cooperation.”UAB "Diabaltika LT", Director, Ignas Kavaliūnas, LinkedIn
