Bioscience Engineering: Sustainable Urban Bioscience Engineering: Study Content

The Master of Bioscience Engineering: Sustainable Urban Bioscience Engineering aims to address rapid global urbanisation and its impact on the urban living environment. Resource use and waste production are increasing, air and water quality are under pressure, energy demand is changing, climate change effects are intensifying, risks of health problems are increasing, and so on.

 

The Master’s programme will qualify you to become a bioscience engineer who can provide (eco)technological and sustainable solutions to these various societally relevant challenges. The programme will provide you with in-depth knowledge of urban environmental challenges from different disciplines and of the right tools to address them. Key in the Master’s programme are the multidisciplinary CityLabs in the first year of the curriculum. Each CityLab is coordinated
by a different university and focusses on a particular urban environmental challenge.

Bioscience Engineering: Sustainable Urban Bioscience Engineering: Career

During the Master’s programme, you will interact with different types of stakeholders that are active in a city, both locally and globally (citizens, policy makers, businesses, organisations and many more).

 

The Master’s programme prepares you for a maximal and global employability in a broad international professional field. You will find employment with a wide variety of employers, both with those already providing sustainable and (eco)technological solutions to urban environmental challenges and with those still lacking a sustainable approach: in the public sector at local, national or supranational level (e.g. ministries of environment or European institutions), in international organisations, in academic or research institutions (e.g. universities or research institutes), in non-governmental organisations, and in private companies (e.g. environmental sector, food industry or engineering firms).

 

Particulary relevant is that this Master’s programme is jointly organised by the University of Antwerp (coordinator),Ghent University and KU Leuven, which is unique in Belgium and will
result in a jointly awarded degree.
