The curriculum is organized into two branches of specialization, including a common part in the first semester. The branches of specialization are identified with two major areas of intervention in the Environment: "Energy? and "Environmental Monitoring and Remediation". The Curriculum Units (UC's) of the common core are mandatory and are within the scientific areas of biology, physics, geology, mathematics and chemistry. The branches of specialization are developed from the second semester. Each branch includes specific UC's mandatory and optional, in the field of Environmental Sciences and others, in order to confer the powers of each and thus generate their training profile. The integrative nature of the Master is further reinforced by the existence, in 2nd semester of each branch, of an optional UC that can be chosen from among several UC's working in the two branches.

Access to higher education

The Master graduates will possess multidisciplinary advanced training, which will give them access to a third cycle more specific on issues that complement their training.


1 - Integration into the labor market
- Consultancy and environmental services
- Producing activities
- Energy sector
2 - Research - progression to doctoral studies
