Program Description

PhD in Environmental Chemistry and Technology

University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague

Overview

The aim of the Ph.D. study program is to train experts with deep knowledge of environmental and related chemical and biochemical disciplines, informatics and mathematical modeling. Ph.D. studies build on this foundation and deepen knowledge in a wide scale of environmental areas such as analytical methods for monitoring the of water and air quality and soil contamination; technologies for drinking water production, wastewater treatment; sludge treatment, solid waste management, and soil decontamination technologies; removal of air pollutants. An important part of the study is also the prevention of all forms of waste, recycling and recovery as renewable resources. Students are trained in a solution of complex research projects.

Careers

Alumni are employed in research, training, design and other institutions, in environmental departments of public administration from the local level up to ministries. They can work as well as managers and technologists of companies operating water and energy infrastructure and in industrial plants.
