IMETE is offered by a consortium consisting of 3 leading Higher Education Institutes: Ghent University (UGent, Gent, Belgium), UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education (UNESCO-IHE, Delft, The Netherlands), and Institute of Chemical Technology Prague (ICTP, Prague, Czech Republic). The language of instruction is English, although students can also select courses at Ghent University taught in Dutch. Graduates obtain the joint degree “International Master of Science in Environmental Technology and Engineering” from ICTP and UGent, and the double degree “Master of Science in Environmental Science – specialisation Environmental Technology and Engineering” from UNESCO-IHE. As soon as legally allowed, UNESCO-IHE will also deliver the joint degree “International Master of Science in Environmental Technology and Engineering”.
