Students must complete the course of study to meet the credits requirement. A thesis research is considered an essential part of the degree.

3. Professional Courses Offered in English

Courses Structure

Students are required to take Chinese courses, professional courses, internship and academic activity. The program provides a comprehensive professional education and research in the area of water/wastewater treatment, air pollution control, solid waste control, environmental chemistry, environmental microbiology, environmental planning and management, environmental policy etc. The courses are scheduled to permit either intensive study in a single area or interdisciplinary study between areas. Comprehensive introductory courses are given to provide a common basis of understanding among those with dissimilar backgrounds. Professional courses are selected in consultation with the graduate coordinator or a faculty advisor to meet his/her academic and career goals. An internship is designed for students to gain professional experiences in a company or environmental protection organization in China. The normal period of this program is 2 years.

4. Internship

Based on the coursework, the two-year master program requires an internship/on-spot survey. During the on–spot survey, student will design and conduct scientific survey on china-specific issues with the help of supervisors. A diverse number of practice opportunities are available in water plant, wastewater treatment plant, waste treatment and recycling facilities, environmental company, environmental protection bureau, multinational corporations or other national or international organizations. During the on-spot survey, students will be exposed to methods and techniques used by natural and social scientists to identify, analyze and interpret environmental problems. The on-spot survey will be in Beijing or in other parts of China, and usually conduct in the summer after the first academic year.

Introduction of School

As one of the earliest Chinese institutions dedicated to environmental higher education and research, the School of Environment (SOE) of Tsinghua University (THU) is pledged to the development of sustainable solutions that allows minimizing the impact of human activities on environment. Its commitment also includes educating people to embrace the idea of sustainability.

SOE conducts research in a wide arrange of fields, including water supply, wastewater treatment, air pollution control, solid wastes management, environmental chemistry, microbiology, hydrology, ecology, energy and resources, environmental simulation, and environmental management and policy. SOE has provided technical and theoretical support for China in solving big environmental problems and implementing sustainable development. After years of effort, SOE has established a scientific and comprehensive system of education, focusing on disciplines of Environmental Engineering, Environmental Science, Environmental Management, Municipal Engineering, Radioactive Protection and Environmental Protection. Each year hundreds of the most talented students were matriculated, many of them had become outstanding figures in the environmental field.

SOE has established exchanges and cooperation with many world class universities, organizations and enterprises in terms of mutual visits, collaborative scientific research and joint education programs.

As the conflicts between people’s efforts to improve living conditions and nature’s own balance is increasing at an ever increasing speed, we identify more and more responsibilities on our shoulders and a more challenging mission for us to fulfill. Aiming at national environmental strategy and international environmental frontier, we will continuously strive for building up a world-class environmental discipline with distinctive research characteristics, advanced scientific facilities, outstanding personnel and an innovative management system.
