Master's programme in Management and Engineering of Environment and Energy ME3

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 joint 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 appropriate skills to resolve 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 joint master’s programme is thus addressed to engineers and managers, who will work in Europe or in any other regions of the world, to monitor complex social-technical systems related to the environment and energy.

The universities participating in the joint master’s programme ME3 are:

During the first year of the joint master’s programme, students acquire foundations in management at UPM, Madrid, Spain and Eco-technologies and Environmental Process Engineering at IMT Atlantique Nantes, France. During the second year, students have the option to follow one of the three study tracks:

  • Track A. Sustainable Energy Engineering at KTH, Stockholm, Sweden
  • Track B. Engineering and Modelling of Energy Technologies at BME, Budapest, Hungary
  • Track C. Energy Systems and Services for Efficiency at IMT Atlantique, Nantes, France

The programme lasts two years, the first 18 months of which are mainly devoted to academic learning, acquisition and consolidation of knowledge and skills. During the last six months, students hold a professional internship/produce an MSc thesis leading to completion of the master’s granting double master’s degrees.
