Master's programme in Environmental Engineering for Sustainable Development
Our world is under threat from climate change, overconsumption, and ever-increasing pollution. Are you interested in contributing to the solutions of these in a sustainable way? If so, then the online Master's programme in Environmental Engineering for Sustainable Development is a great choice!
This online programme is one of the first international Master's programmes in Environmental Engineering in Europe. It will give you enhanced knowledge about environmental challenges, including how to address these issues while contributing to sustainable development.
We strive to develop state-of-the-art knowledge, models, and processes that form the core of the environmental engineering discipline. Our goal is to contribute to a sustainable solution to these problems by equipping the next generation of environmental leaders with the knowledge you will need to succeed.
Though the programme is based entirely online, we provide ample opportunities for interaction with fellow classmates as well as lecturers in the programme, through our modern digital platforms.
Strongly correlated with ongoing research
This Master's programme is hosted by the Division of Environmental Engineering and Energy Processes at Mälardalen University, where a group of internationally recognised researchers investigate the most significant environmental challenges facing us today.
Our Master’s programme is strongly correlated with our ongoing research, allowing us to provide insight into the current state of the field as well as emerging technologies. You will thus be well prepared for a future career in environmental engineering, including working or conducting research in related fields.
Employment and Future Prospects
This programme will give you an in-depth understanding of current and future environmental challenges, and provide you with tools to meet these challenges through a lens of sustainable development.
Future employers of our graduates include industry, consulting firms and public organisations (such as municipalities and government agencies) in fields related to environmental engineering.

– We’re doing research that will have a good effect on both people and the environment, says Patrik Klintenberg, researcher at Mälardalen University (MDH).
In Renewable Energy the researchers work with processes and components for transforming biomass to heat, electricity and vehicle fuel, and also the recycling of nutrients and energy from society’s waste flows.
This is how MDH work with the sustainable development goals
On 1 January 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development — adopted by world leaders — officially came into force. Over the next fifteen years countries will mobilize efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change, while ensuring that no one is left behind. This is how MDH work with the sustainable development goals.
Master's programme in Sustainable Energy Systems
Your cutting-edge expertise will be required in the transition from fossil to renewable energy sources and in order to meet the requirements of society utilising the energy in a more efficient way. As an engineer within the energy field you are attractive on the professional market. You could land a position as project manager or plant engineer in Sweden or abroad.
