In the changing world of today, there is an urgent need for engineers with the ability to identify, prevent and solve environmental problems in a global context. As a department we are on the leading edge of developing and promoting environmental friendly and sustainable technologies.
The department aims to educate tomorrow’s creative, responsible, influential and globally cognizant environmental engineers corresponding to the societal needs.
All our graduates have excellent opportunities to proceed directly into employment in the private or public environmental sector as consultants/managers, or they may choose to apply for a doctoral study.

Content of the studies
The department offers more than 50 different courses and both courses, field work and projects are based on a multidisciplinary approach to solving environmental problems.
When studying at DTU Environment you can work with a broad range of environmental challenges including water environment, water supply, groundwater, urban drainage systems and water ressources, waste management and wastewater treatment, pollution, bioenergy and environmental and human health risk assessment of chemicals.

International profile
The department’s global outlook is reflected in the many different nationalities represented among students, teachers and researchers. Students also have various opportunities to see the world during their studies. Both in the bachelor and master programme students can go on exchange stays at other universities or do project or course work abroad.
The department also offers combined master degrees with other universities such as the Joint Nordic Master, eNviro5tech, and the 1:1 programs with Technische Universität München (TUM) in Germany and Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland.

Equipment
The department has a well established laboratory infrastructure and the students are offered the possibility to obtain training in a range of laboratory techniques and other skills, including field techniques applicable to environmental science and technology.

Influence
As a student in one of DTU Environments study programs there are many ways to influence your studies. In the department study board students take up half the seats and teachers the other half. Among other things the study board is responsible for the range of courses and the continuing development of DTU Environments study programs. An important input to that work is the evaluation of courses that the students do after each semester.
