The Master of Environmental Engineering is a postgraduate degree designed for registration at NQF level 9. The programme aims at providing practice-oriented education for high level engineers/specialists that can provide practical solutions to real-world environmental engineering related problems in Namibia and beyond. The curriculum is structured to facilitate specialisation in the areas of Energy Systems and Water Engineering.
This programme will, furthermore, enable students to evaluate and design complex and innovative systems in the above-mentioned areas of specialisation using advanced analytical, design, as well as management tools and techniques to address societal needs. Students will also be capacitated to work and study independently, synthesise knowledge at the forefront of Environmental Engineering, and conduct research using scientific methods. The programme will be a combination of coursework and a thesis.
Graduates of this programme will be able to contribute significantly to the national development goals and will be able to take up employment positions such as Engineering Managers, Senior Engineers, Consultants, Researchers, and Academics both in public and private sectors.
The programme has been endorsed by members of the Programme Advisory Committee; while institutions of higher learning have been consulted for purposes of benchmarking (please find evidence of consultation, benchmarking and support letters attached).
Namibia University of Science and Technology is driven by a vision to be a premier University in Science and Technology, preparing leaders for the new economy. This programme supports the NUST’s vision and mission as outlined in the PSP4 by linking science and technology in engineering. Furthermore, the programme seeks to improve competitiveness locally, regionally and internationally by providing advanced academic and research competencies that will enable graduates to contribute to the national development goals as also outlined in the NDP4.
The design of the curriculum, enabling specialisation in Energy Systems and Water Engineering is a direct response to needs expressed during extensive consultations with industry (both private and public sector). Several relevant stakeholders within and outside Namibia have been consulted. It is anticipated that this approach would help to ensure the future sustainability of this programme.
The Ministry of Agriculture Water and Forestry under the UNESCO-Namibia Water sector Support programme, has requested NUST to develop a Master of Environmental Engineering in order to build capacity in the country’s water sector. The programme is fully aligned with requirements of the NUST Curriculum Framework and the National Qualifications Framework (NQF).
