The duration of the programme is two years which correspond to three semesters of course work (90 credits) and one semester (30 credits) of Degree project. The education is at the advanced level. The literature and all other course material are in English, which also is the teaching language.
The curriculum reflects the interdisciplinary nature of the programme that provides students with a profound knowledge on sustainable development strategies through a meeting between natural and social science.
The programme offers two specialization tracks, Environmental Engineering and Sustainable Infrastructure. The two tracks represent two separate professional competences where the former focuses attention on the analytical tools for environmental management pertaining to natural sciences. Sustainable Infrastructure gives emphasis to analytical and conceptual frameworks for sustainable development on a local, national and global level. In practice these two professional specializations are interconnected as Sustainable Infrastructure refers to the societal context of sustainability strategies while Environmental Engineering relates to the professional expertise that provides scientific knowledge for these sustainability strategies. By merging these professional competences into one programme, graduates acquire a comprehensive understanding of the interaction between societal and natural processes that affect environment, the actors involved, and the social, economic and environmental determinants that contribute to the development of a sustainable society.
