MASTER OF ENGINEERING IN ENVIRONMENTAL

The programme is a combination between course work and research dissertation project.  The core study areas include environmental management and sustainability, solid and hazardous waste management and water pollution control. The programme is designed to develop the intellectual, practical and professional skills in the critical acquisition, analysis, interpretation and understanding of environmental engineering principles and issues. The programme is suitable for any bachelor graduate from science, technology, engineering courses and from other discipline with relevant experiences

Benefits:
The programme provides you with the advanced understanding in environmental engineering, technical knowledge and generic skills required to enable you to develop a successful career in the progressively globalised engineering marketplace

Career opportunities:
Graduates of the programme can work as process engineer, executive engineer, consultant, managers and R&D officer in various public and private institutions/industries, and as academicians at tertiary institutions.
