As you can imagine, environmental engineers work to solve problems related to the environment, typically problems caused by human activities. They design ways to decrease water and air pollution and chemical runoff from farms and manufacturing facilities. They also tackle issues of public health related to how we interact with our environment. Their biggest challenges involve keeping ecosystems functioning properly despite the continuing growth of human populations. Without environmental engineers protecting wild ecosystems, the organisms that we rely on–the bees that pollinate many of our crops, for example–might not be around.

Massive climate challenges and scarce natural resources threaten our future. Therefore, we need environmental engineers to turn the tide– and this could be you. C Link  provides you with a comprehensive understanding of the environmental consequences of our consumption. You will learn to design eco-friendly and eco-efficient solutions, which point in a green and future-oriented direction.

Our group of companies  a specialist in environmental system analysis, environment and resource efficiency of systems, products and technologies and your job profile will be the environmental expert in the creation of new and more sustainable solutions in industry, consultancies, authorities or research institutions.

Three core disciplines of Environmental Engineering, These three core disciplines are integrated in the study programme:

1. Understanding sustainability: Looking at global environmental challenges, the role of Design-for-Environment, strategies for mitigation of environmental impacts and resource depletion.

2. Environmental technology: Strategies and technologies for the management and treatment of wastewater and solid waste.

3. Eco-efficient Engineering: Methods and tools for analysing the environmental impacts of technologies, systems, products and processes and for creating eco-efficient solutions at all levels.
