Profile of the programme
Based on the latest scientific and research findings the study programme provides students with both theoretical knowledge and practical experience in the fields of chemistry and chemical production, chemistry and technology of environmental protection and it also develops students' abilities to apply the above in an active way. The graduates are supposed to work in the developing industry of environment protection and in all industries in the positions of ecologists, air protection specialists, water and waste treatment specialists, in civil service, in control authorities and inspectorates for environment protection, in laboratories specialized in chemistry and biology of environment and in numerous developing research and educational institutions for environment protection.
Key learning outcomes
Graduates of the study programme Chemistry and Technology of Environmental Protection are thoroughly familiar with the fate of organic, inorganic and organometallic pollutants in the environment, both traditional and emerging. Emphasis is placed on the development and the widest possible application of the environmentally friendly technologies. Graduates know the technology of preparation of drinking water from different sources and processes of wastewater treatment (both municipal and industrial), including the latest trends in these areas. They also know the principles of waste management in compliance with the principle of maximum utilization of various types of waste, and they are familiar with the issue of rational use of renewable energy sources.
Occupational profiles of graduates with examples
The graduates are supposed to work in developing industry of environmental protection and in all industrial branches in the positions of ecologists, hydraulic engineers, and specialists in air protection and waste treatment; at all levels of state and local administration in control bodies dealing with protection of environment; in laboratories focusing on chemistry and biology of environment; and also in manifold research and educational establishments aimed at protection of environment.
Access to further studies
The graduates may continue in a doctoral study programme.
