Forms of Study at the Faculty of Environmental Technology
The Faculty of Environmental Technology offers the following forms of study:
Five-year MSc study programmes are based on the core subjects which are common to all UCT faculties in the first three years of study. The core subjects include mathematics, physics, general and inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, physical chemistry, biochemistry, chemical engineering and computer equipment. All UCT faculties require about the same extent of lectures, seminars and laboratory practice in the core subjects.
In the subsequent years of study, instruction is focused on the explanation of the principles of chemical and technological processes, and on expanding students knowledge of these processes. The aim is to teach students how to apply theoretical knowledge of the core subjects to the solution of specific problems in technological practise and in creative research activity. The study of chemical technology is supplemented with subjects whose knowledge is considered inevitable for practice in the area of environmental protection and in the fuel processing industry.
The three-year BSc study programme runs parallel to MSc study programmes.
University graduates may apply, through a contest, for three-year PhD study programmes which are concluded with a state doctoral examination and the defence of a dissertation.
The presented survey lists all study programmes and individual subprogrammes and fields of specialization taught at the Faculty. All subprogrammes taught within MSc study programmes are accredited by the Federation of European National Associations of Engineers (FEANI), which allows for the award of the title Eur.Ing.
The Faculty has currently about 450 students in MSc study programmes and 100 PhD students.
