Erasmus Mundus is offering scholarships for the International Master of Science in Environmental Technology and Engineering (IMETE) in 2020.
This is a Joint Master Degree Programme, taught in English, bringing together students and scholars from all over the world. In IMETE, you will become part of a new generation of environmental scientists. As a graduate, you will be able to design and apply state-of-the-art environmental technology and engineering solutions to tackle today’s global environmental problems.
You will study two years at three leading European universities in 3 different European countries: Ghent University (Belgium), IHE Delft Institute for Water Education (The Netherlands), and the University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague (Czech Republic).
IMETE also allows you to visit any of the numerous associated partners from all over the world for thesis research. These partners also contribute to the programme through visiting scholars and researchers. Once graduated, you obtain a joint degree from the 3 universities and are an “International Master of Science in Environmental Technology and Engineering”.
As a graduate of IMETE you are ready for a professional career in:
- the private sector (environmental technological applications in different domains),
- the research sector (applied research at universities or research institutions, or in-company research), or
- the public sector (consulting in local, regional and (inter)national administrations, defining and implementing environmental policy for sustainable development).
The IMETE programme takes two years to complete and starts yearly in September at UCT in Prague. In February of the next year students move to Delft, the Netherlands and in September students move to Gent. Finally, in February of the 3rd year, students start their thesis research at one of the three academic institutions or at an associated partner.
