Short presentation of the program

The Master's program has been proposed and structured on the premise that in the context of the sustainable development of modern society, environmental education has become a priority and is a complex activity. The organization of the training process at master's level is based on in-depth knowledge and obtaining additional skills in the field of Environmental Engineering, preparing graduates from the undergraduate cycle. The Master's program aims to complete the training of graduates by creating realistic guidelines for the application and interpretation of technical, technological, and economic information obtained in undergraduate studies in environmental engineering, specializations within the faculty, and related specializations for graduates of other faculties. The purpose of this master's degree program is to train professional skills for a wide range of demands that environmental institutions, research institutions in the field, the education and the economic environment demand of future specialists.

Specifically, the mission of the study program has the following objectives: a) ensuring the training of specialists with superior skills, in accordance with current and future directions in environmental engineering, ensuring the high level of training of students, in accordance with national and international standards, endowing them with the knowledge and skills necessary for active and efficient integration in the profession and in social life, by achieving a formative education, modern, student-centered and pragmatically oriented to the real needs of the Romanian school and labor market requirements. b) the continuous improvement and modernization of the educational process, by adapting the curricula, the analytical programs and the teaching methodology to the changing requirements of the Romanian society and taking into account the exigencies of the profile education in the European Union; c) expanding the relations of interuniversity cooperation with higher education and research institutions in the country and abroad and active integration in European academic cooperation programs, perpetuating cooperation with education and culture institutions in Alba Iulia and the area, by participating masters in joint teaching programs , ERASMUS PLUS exchanges, etc. d) ensuring the development and improvement of the technical staff in the field according to the needs of the labor market; e) connecting education with scientific research, training master students in the development of projects and studies on current topics in the field, conducting research programs in the field of Engineering Sciences focused on fundamental topics and current priorities of developing processes and systems and European integration of training programs.

The curriculum of the master's program ensures general and transversal competencies that allow a high flexibility in choosing the post-graduate professional route. We mention: - Drawing up studies for environmental protection (environmental report, environmental impact report, environmental balance, location report, adequate assessment study, environmental audit and certification, case study expertise, feasibility studies, of impact, opportunity related to investment / development / modernization works - Collection, processing, analysis, validation and interpretation of environmental data, obtained by various methods and techniques (field observations, surveys, measurements of environmental parameters, statistical methods, mathematical modeling, GIS techniques, etc.) - Participation in the process of implementing environmental management systems in economic and administrative units - Coordination of studies for environmental protection, in accordance with the requirements of sustainable development, highlighting viable solutions and alternatives ecological, economic and social development - Development of ecological reconstruction strategies, policies and plans, sustainable development, protection and conservation of the environment or landscape (management plans, environmental action plans, sustainable development strategies, landscape assessment studies, analysis and assessment of the environment for various urban planning and spatial planning documentation). - Responsible execution of professional tasks, in conditions of limited autonomy and qualified assistance, applying efficient and responsible work strategies. - Familiarization with the roles and activities specific to teamwork and distribution of tasks for subordinate levels. -Efficient use of learning resources and techniques for personal and professional development and knowledge at an average level of at least one foreign language of international circulation.
