Want to understand and reduce environmental effects on human health?
Master’s Degree Programme in Environmental Health and Technology is a highly multidisciplinary and research oriented programme, aiming at combining comprehensive understanding of human exposure and health effects with technological solutions to reduce the effects. Focus is on environmental agents such as air pollutants, ionizing and non-ionizing radiation and chemicals as well as methods needed to produce meaningful risk assessment from such information.
This study program is suitable for students who wish to pursue a career in environmental health research, consulting or in environmental health agencies and for those who are interested in pursuing doctoral studies in environmental sciences.
Master’s degree studies
General Courses on Environmental Health and Technology cover core courses on wide range of environmental health related topics including exposure assessment, environmental risk assessment, advanced occupational hygiene and green chemistry.
In addition to the general courses, we offer several study modules for advanced knowledge on the following topics:
- Air Pollutants, Aerosols and Health module provides advanced knowledge in indoor and outdoor air pollutants, especially fine and nanoparticles, their sources, emission control technologies, health outcomes and risk assessment. This module is ideal if you wish to pursue a career in environmental administration, environmental regulatory agencies, private sector or research.
- Radiation module includes courses on biological effects and health risks of radiation, including both ionising and non-ionising radiation. All approaches of environmental health research are used, including in vitro studies, animal studies, epidemiology and exposure assessment. This kind of combination of courses and research provides a unique possibility to become a radiation biology specialist.
- Water module specializes on water quality and technology topics including water hygiene and microbial risk assessment, conventional and most up-to-date purification technologies, prevention of water pollution and recovery of the valuable resources. The study environment includes a unique water laboratory which offers excellent facilities for the simulation of even pilot-scale purification processes. This study package is suitable for students who wish to pursue a career in water monitoring, regulatory agencies and companies dealing with water treatment or research.
- Environmental Informatics module is a new and growing area in the modern environmental sciences. It is based on applying information technology to environmental issues. The size and complexity of environmental related data lead to a need for an advanced computational approach, which helps to integrate information from various sources. With environmental informatics, new solutions to environmental problems can be found more effectively, and end users can be offered a higher level of information
Application and admission procedures
An eligible applicant should have at least a lower university degree (BSc) in environmental or biological sciences, obtained at an internationally recognized and accredited university or higher education institution. In addition to these basic requirements, studies in human biology, as well as physics or chemistry during the bachelor’s studies are expected from the applicant. The degree should entitle the applicant to apply to Master’s studies in the country where the degree has been awarded. In addition,
In case, the applicant has not yet received a Bachelor’s degree certificate by the admission deadline, he/she is required to submit an officially certified copy of his/her latest transcript of records during the application period. If the applicant receives the degree certificate and the final transcript of records during the application period it is recommended to submit them as soon as possible.
Maximum of 10 international students will be selected, based on the application documents.
Online application form is required to be submitted by 22.1.2020 (studyinfo.fi). Incomplete or delayed applications will not be considered.
UEF Admission verifies applicants’ language skills according to the programme-specific requirements, and processes applicants’ educational certificates. This includes verifying the authenticity of the educational documents as well as credential evaluation.
The application period starts 2.12.2019 and ends 22.1.2020 at 15:00 (GMT+2). For more information about application prosedure, please visit UEF Admission pages.
