The Master of Science in Environmental Engineering aims to provide students with the skills to develop sustainable solutions to complex environmental problems while taking into account social, legal, economic and resource issues. The degree is research-based and focuses on the technical and environmental sciences.

This is a broad, interdisciplinary and applied degree with the opportunity to specialize in many different types of environmental problems. These specializations include methods for dealing with waste and sewage from cities or industry or for decontaminating soil and groundwater. Methods and tools for reducing the environmental impact of industry can be investigated. Questions relating to the use of natural resources, for example groundwater resources and drinking- water production, can be considered. Courses can be taken in environmentally sustainable manufacturing, town planning, occupational health and safety, environmental regulation and environmental management.

Danmarks Tekniske Universitet's hovedadresse ligger i Lyngby 10 kilometer nord for København, og det er primært her at DTU studerende bliver undervist. Du kan tage turen til DTU i Lyngby med bil eller ved hjælp af offentlige transportmidler. Der kører flere busser næsten lige til døren og Lyngby Station ligger 2 km. væk, men også her er der gode busforbindelser, f.eks. bus nr. 300S mod Nærum eller bus nr. 190.
