Find PhD Programs in Environmental Engineering in Europe 2019

The PhD can vary depending on the institution and country in which it is awarded. Most scholars pursue a PhD because of strong motivation to contribute to the academic community as well as true curiosity about their chosen field of study. 

 

Environmental engineering is an academic area of study that trains students to mitigate or remove the waste and pollution produced by manufacturing and other harmful business industries. Individuals who study environmental engineering often go on to careers in government or work for private companies, tackling issues such as recycling systems, water sanitation and waste disposal solutions.

Europe is the sixth largest continent and includes 47 countries and assorted dependencies, islands and territories. It is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the south, Asia to the east, and the Atlantic Ocean to the West.

Overview

The aim of the PhD study is to provide the graduates with a deep knowledge of classical and modern technologies for processing of different types of fossil fuels and also their usage in power and energetic engineering respecting environmental protection. Environmentally friendly methods of energy utilization of biomass and the use of alternative fuels in transport and energy is another important area of the PhD students training. The classical technologies of oil, coal and natural gas treatment and processing are discussed together with modern methods of their chemical use. Environmental aspects of different fuels processing and fuel products utilization are studied. Students are encouraged to work independently in the laboratory, to study the scientific and professional literature and to present their results. Student participation in national and international conferences is required and supported by the Faculty.... [-]

The Institute of Spatial and Environmental Planning (ISEP) is one of the fastest growing and dynamic planning research environments in the UK.

Planning at Queen's is now rated ninth in Russell Group submissions.

Our research programme is based on the concept of spatial planning and whilst our empirical work is partly grounded in the region, it is built on strong international, interdisciplinary and theoretical references. Our particular strength is the staff team who have built a track record in scholarly and applied research and a wide-ranging portfolio of publications, research grants and Doctoral studentships. The Institute has built an international reputation and attracted a stream of major research funding linked to our main areas. The Institute values the connection between our research and teaching programmes and the application of our empirical work in a learning environment and continues to innovate and develop teaching programmes to reflect a rapidly changing market place, problem and policy context and changes in professional standards....

Research topics for this PhD are very varied but can include microwave processing, wastewater treatment, greenhouse gases, removal of pollutants in water and soils as well as many other aspects.

This course requires a 2:1 or international equivalent and/or a master's degree at merit level or above in a relevant subject, and an IELTS level 6.0 (5.5 in each element). It is usually completed over a period of around three years.

Facilities

There are extensive laboratories with equipment from bench to pilot-plant scale. We are one of the few universities in the UK with access to mass spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy and a ‘virtual-reality’ suite where you can construct and optimize your own complete processing plant....
