Our world is under threat from climate change, overconsumption, and ever-increasing pollution. Are you interested in contributing to the solutions of these in a sustainable way? If so, then the online Master's programme in Environmental Engineering for Sustainable Development is a great choice!
This online programme is one of the first international Master's programmes in Environmental Engineering in Europe. It will give you enhanced knowledge about environmental challenges, including how to address these issues while contributing to sustainable development.
We strive to develop state-of-the-art knowledge, models, and processes that form the core of the environmental engineering discipline. Our goal is to contribute to a sustainable solution to these problems by equipping the next generation of environmental leaders with the knowledge you will need to succeed.
Though the programme is based entirely online, we provide ample opportunities for interaction with fellow classmates as well as lecturers in the programme, through our modern digital platforms.

Strongly correlated with ongoing research
This Master's programme is hosted by the Division of Environmental Engineering and Energy Processes at Mälardalen University, where a group of internationally recognised researchers investigate the most significant environmental challenges facing us today.
Our Master’s programme is strongly correlated with our ongoing research, allowing us to provide insight into the current state of the field as well as emerging technologies. You will thus be well prepared for a future career in environmental engineering, including working or conducting research in related fields.
