The International Master of Science in Environmental Technology and Engineering (IMETE) programme trains people to apply and develop environmental technologies, with a strong focus on multidisciplinary and problem-based technology development. It offers a wide range of optional study fields in an international environment. The IMETE graduates will be qualified for a professional career in the private sector (environmental technological applications in different domains), research sector (applied research at universities or research institutions, or in-company research) and the public sector (consulting in local, regional and (inter)national administrations, defining and implementing environmental policy for sustainable development). The IMETE programme intensively promotes networking and exchange of knowledge and experience between different nationalities, in particular with scholars and students from developing countries and countries in transition, which are rapidly growing markets for the application of environmental technologies.

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”.
