The Environmental Engineering Master Program is a multidisciplinary curriculum aimed at engineering and science graduates who wish to pursue graduate studies to enhance their knowledge in environmental subjects and gain experience in engineering solutions to environmental problems generated by industrial growth with sustainable natural resources.
Currently, there is a increased demand for graduates who are competent in environmental subjects in all sectors of industry including governmental agencies.
The environmental engineering master program will equip the graduate students with a firm science foundation related to the environment,  engineering design and problem solving skills required to address contemporary environmental issues at a time where natural resources are heavily utilized.
The environmental engineering master program curriculum is designed to benefit both practicing engineers and those contemplating pursuing a research oriented career.

What job opportunities are there in Environmental Engineering?

Environmental engineering training offers the graduates opportunities to work in several domains of environmental protection. The major areas include air pollution control and abatement, industrial hygiene, hazardous waste management, toxic materials control, water supply, wastewater management, storm water management, solid waste disposal, public health, soil remediation and land management. Within each of these major categories are many sub-specialties.
The degree will enhance prospects for potential employment in Governmental bodies (Ministry of Environment, Ministry of Works), national and international industries located in and outside Qatar (eg: hydrocarbon (processing, refining and petrochemicals)as well as service and utility providers among others. Also, potential employment opportunities exist in consulting companies as well as in research institutions.

Program Objectives:

Graduates of the Master of Environmental Engineering program will:

1. Contribute to sustainable development in their respective employment sectors such as industry and governmental agencies;
2. Take an active role in their continuous professional development  to enable the state of Qatar to build the knowledge-based economy emphasized in QNV2030;
3. Promote ethical and professional standards in their careers with respect to the duty of care towards the environment and sustainable development.
4. Contribute to environmental, societal, economic and technological needs to address the challenges of the knowledge-based economy.

Program Outcomes:

The Learning Outcomes in the proposed program can be stated as:

1. Apply knowledge of biological science, chemistry, physics, mathematics; statistics, mass, energy and mass conservation and transport principles needed to understand and solve environmental engineering problems
2. Design and conduct experiments necessary to gather data and create information for use in analysis and design
3. Demonstrate advanced knowledge and skills essential for professional practice of environmental engineering
4. Predict and determine fate and transport of substances in and among air, water and soil phases as well as in engineered systems
5. Gain knowledge on globalization and other contemporary issues necessary to understand the impact of environmental engineering solutions in a global, societal, and environmental context.
