Courses within the programme


Environmental Engineer, Specialization in Water and Wastewater Engineering (Co-op) 180 ce

The course commences with an introduction on the topic of automation. This is so that you can quickly get a general outline of the  subject and a better understanding of subsequent courses. Exciting  project work is a part of many of the courses, which is a normal form of study both at the University and in  working life in the future.

Possible changes in the courses may occur. If you are reading a course with a  "Co-op" experience then the course is four years long. For further information see the course plan that describes your studies
