Pre-Bologna research master's degree in the field of technical environmental protection (no legal status)

Qualification Information

Students will be able to:

(general competences)

  • search for new sources of knowledge in the relevant professional and academic field,
  • use research methods across a broad spectrum of problems and in new or changed circumstances, and take responsibility for leading highly complex work processes and systems,
  • demonstrate proficiency in research methods, procedures and processes in the broader field of technical protection of the environment,
  • design, advise on, plan and implement technical solutions in the field of environmental protection using professional critical judgement, self-critical assessment and responsibility,
  • take into account professional excellence, social utility, ethical responsibility, a commitment to professional ethics and criteria for the environmental integrity of their creations,
  • apply systemic concepts and principles of universality,
  • carry out an independent technical assessment on the basis of scientific analysis and synthesis,
  • 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 connect theory and practice,
  • analyse problems, exclude unimportant effects, produce a synthesis, foresee possible solutions, select the best decision in a given moment and assess related consequences,
  • communicate and 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,
  • master new procedures in environmental process engineering, in particular advanced procedures for the treatment of waste water, the treatment of waste gases and waste management,
  • demonstrate understanding of and apply the methods of environmental analysis,
  • plan, evaluate and build advanced technologies, innovative products and systems that can potentially be offered in global markets, either now or in the future.
