More information




Program description:
The Institute of Environmental Management and the Institute of Raw Material Preparation and Environmental Processing share responsibility for the up-to-date education in two modules of the program (Contaminated site remediation / Waste management and environmental Processing). Both institutes have a dynamic and young teaching and research staff with remarkable R+D portfolio and excellent reputation in H2020 research programs. The two institutes share and integrate a well-equipped research infrastructure and laboratory and have leading role in waste management, contaminated site remediation and waste processing and recycling technologies in Hungary. The aim of this program is to train environmental engineers with up-to-date knowledge in natural sciences, earth sciences and engineering, economics and management. One specialisation focuses to identify and evaluate potential environmental hazards and to prevent or reduce the impact and risk of environmental threats, as well as manage the damage control projects. They will be able to work out at advanced level technical solutions and apply them in order to prevent contamination of the environment. They are trained in contaminated site remediation, and risk assessment, planning and operating monitoring systems, managing after-care, investigating, excavating and assessing polluted areas, determining the need for and methods of remediation, participating in and managing implementation, creating groundwater flow and contaminant transport models of underground flow systems, carrying out impact assessments and environmental protection reviews and producing impact studies. The other specialisation trains professionals for circular economy, focusing on recycling technologies and processes. Graduates will be capable of design and operating waste management and treatment systems, planning and implementing tasks related to waste treatment and disposal, design landfills and waste recycling facilities, carrying out tasks related to their operation.
