Master's programme in Management and Engineering of Environment and Energy ME3 (Erasmus+)
Nowadays, environmental protection and sustainability within the chemical processing and energy industries are of major concerns. In a near future, experts predict that the energy demand will drastically increase, especially because of the spectacular industrial and economic growth of the emerging countries. In such a context, meeting the energy needs of society without serious adverse impacts on humanity and the environment is a world challenge.
Management and Engineering of Environment and Energy at KTH
Whilst generating energy with minimal environmental impact falls within the broad scope of engineering, managing the demand for energy is in the realm of economics and social sciences. In most cases, these issues are interrelated and global solutions and strategies have to be found.
The original feature of the ME3 master's programme is to combine Energy and Environmental Process Engineering with Management and Social Sciences. It aims at offering a well-balanced education to future engineers and managers having the adequate skills to solve environmental and energy issues through an integrated approach, combining technological development and innovations together with the consideration of human, social and economic constraints.
The ME3 masters is thus addressed to engineers and managers, who will work in Europe or in other regions of the world, to monitor complex social-technical systems related to Environment and Energy.
