Master's degree in technical environmental protection (no legal status)

Qualification Information

Students will be able to:

(general competences)

  • apply research methods across a broad spectrum of problems and in new or changed circumstances,
  • assume responsibility for managing highly complex work processes and systems,
  • apply research methods, procedures and processes in the broader field of technical protection of the environment,
  • design, consult on, plan and implement technical solutions in the field of environmental protection using professional critical judgement, self-critical assessment and responsibility, taking into account professional excellence, social utility, ethical responsibility, a commitment to professional ethics and criteria for the environmental integrity of their creations,
  • carry out an independent technical assessment on the basis of scientific analysis and synthesis,
  • place new information and interpretations in the context of the fundamental discipline,
  • demonstrate understanding of the basic structure of the fundamental discipline and the links between its sub-disciplines,
  • display individual creative thinking, find new solutions and use a research approach to the design and manufacture of products that are connected to new techniques and the most advanced technologies,
  • effectively integrate theory and practice, including via project tasks,
  • analyse problems, exclude unimportant effects, produce a synthesis, foresee possible solutions, select the best decision in a given moment and assess related consequences,
  • work as part of a team in national and international contexts

(subject-specific competences)

  • demonstrate mastery of knowledge in a chosen scientific field (e.g. construction and design of engineering and environmental systems, computer modelling of engineering and environmental systems, computer modelling and experimental modelling of environmental phenomena, advanced concepts in environmental protection management) and further develop that knowledge,
  • find new sources of knowledge in the academic and professional spheres of environmental protection,
  • plan, evaluate and build advanced technologies, innovative products and systems that can potentially be offered in global markets, either now or in the future,
  • master new technological procedures and processes,
  • master new procedures in environmental process engineering,
  • employ a holistic approach to waste management,
  • incorporate the findings of other disciplines into the broader field of technical protection of the environment,
  • demonstrate coherent mastery of basic knowledge and integrate knowledge from various fields,
  • demonstrate understanding of and apply the methods of environmental analysis,
  • create detailed models of environmental systems,
  • use modern computer simulation tools for the virtual modelling of environmental systems,
  • demonstrate understanding of economics of environmental protection,
  • demonstrate knowledge of advanced waste water treatment processes,
  • demonstrate the impacts of energy production on the environment and prevent the negative impacts of these processes,
  • demonstrate knowledge of hazardous substances released into the environment,
  • demonstrate knowledge of legislation, strategy and control in environmental protection,
  • demonstrate understanding of transmission phenomena in environmental systems.

Third-cycle doctoral study programmes (SQF level 10)

-

Examination performance is scored as follows: 10 (excellent); 9 (very good: above-average knowledge but with some mistakes); 8 (very good: solid results); 7 (good); 6 (adequate: knowledge satisfies minimum criteria); 5–1 (inadequate). In order to pass an examination, a candidate must achieve a grade between adequate (6) and excellent (10).
