Programme requirements

Have completed a total of 180 ECTS


The growth and development of urban communities, the creation and expansion of road and railway structures, the intensification of agricultural and industrial production boosted by advances in technology, in addition to spatial development plans on a national, regional and local level involve the availability of staff that are capable of anticipating and resolving complex environmental issues, that possess an adequate, interdisciplinary and updated knowledge that enables them to manage the various resources and exercise their profession in a society that is undergoing rapid technological changes. This training complies with the basic objectives of the course in Environment, taught at ULHT. In addition to theoretical preparation, laboratory training is provided with an equivalent rigor and for this reason, UHLT has duly equipped laboratories in the fields of fundamental training and complementary applied training. The agreements and protocols established with other public and private institutions, and other institutions of higher education, municipalities and businesses are also key tools for the development of research, development and innovation.

Knowledge, abilities and skills to be acquired

General Objectives
General training in the scientific areas of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Computer sciences, which allow for the updating of know-how and the furtherance of erudition in the various areas of Engineering and Natural sciences.
Transmission of know-how and development of the students¿ ability to understand, on such a level that:
Based on the knowledge of secondary education, the same is developed and broadened; their knowledge corresponds and is supported by advanced text books; In some fields of the scientific area of Environmental Engineering, they are situated at the cutting edge knowledge in their scientific area. Training of the ability to apply knowledge and understanding to support a professional approach to the work developed in the student¿s vocational area. Development of the students¿ ability to assess situations and decisions, in order to provide: ability to solve problems in the scientific area of Environmental Engineering, outlining and substantiating of individual ways of thinking; ability to collect, select and interpret relevant information, particularly form the perspective of the field of study, that will enable the students to substantiate the prescribed solutions and the conclusions presented, including the analysis of relevant scientific, social and ethical aspects. Development of communications kills that will enable the students to transmit information, ideas, problems and solutions to audiences comprising of specialists and non-specialists. Development of learning abilities that will enable the students to undergo life-long learning, with a high level of autonomy.
Specific objectives:
Broad-ranging training in the fundamental scientific areas that support the Professional activity of Environmental Engineering. Development of the ability to assess and characterize natural systems. Development of the ability to conduct research and development studies and projects. Development of the ability to carry out the practical implementation of know-how in troubleshooting. Development of knowledge and the ability to use programming languages and computing tools to solve problems and support modelling, simulation and decision making.

Further Studies
