The International Master of Science in Environmental Technology and Engineering (IMETE) is a Joint Master Degree Programme, taught in English, bringing together students and scholars from all over the world.
In IMETE, you will become part of a new generation of environmental scientists. As a graduate, you will be able to design and apply state-of-the-art environmental technology and engineering solutions to tackle today’s global environmental problems.
You will study two years at three leading European universities in 3 different European countries: the University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague (Czech Republic), Ghent University (Belgium), and IHE Delft Institute for Water Education (The Netherlands).
IMETE – call for applications
IHE Delft now welcomes applications from international and EU candidate students seeking admissions to the International Master of Science in Environmental Technology and Engineering (IMETE). The programme starts in September 2019, Erasmus Mundus scholarships are available.
The IMETE programme takes two years to complete and starts yearly in September at UCT Prague. In February of the next year students move to Delft, the Netherlands, where they can choose between two tracks, "Ecotechnology" and "Advanced wastewater treatment technologies". An optional internship can be completed in Summer. In September students move to Gent, Belgium to choose between "Air" and "Soil" tracks in the 3rd semester. Finally, in February of the 3rd year, students start their thesis research at one of the three academic institutions or at an associated partner.
Erasmus Mundus Scholarships
Erasmus Mundus JMD scholarships are available on a competitive basis. There are two types of scholarships, depending on whether your country of residence is a partner or programme country.
The following countries will be considered as programme countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Ireland, Greece, Spain, France, Croatia, Italy, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Hungary, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Finland, Sweden, United Kingdom, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Turkey.
All other countries, which are not indicated above, should be considered as partner countries.
he submission deadline for an Erasmus Mundus Scholarship application is 15 January 2019 for applicants from Partner Countries and 15 February 2019 for applicants from Programme Countries. Applications received after this date will be taken into consideration for academic admission, but not for Erasmus Mundus Scholarship. In those cases, you need to submit your application before 15 May 2019.

EM3E-4SW – call for application
The call for application (master edition 2019-2021) is now open. Erasmus Mundus scholarships are available.
The Master in Membrane Engineering for a Sustainable World (EM3E-4SW) offers an advanced educational programme related to membrane science and engineering at the interface between materials science and chemical engineering and focused on specific applicative fields. It involves 6 Higher Education Institutions of 5 European countries:
- Université de Montpellier (France), coordinating organisation,
- Université Toulouse 3 Paul Sabatier (Toulouse, France),
- University of Chemistry and Technology Prague (Czech Republic),
- Universidade Nova de Lisboa (Portugal),
- Universidad de Zaragoza (Spain),
- University of Twente (Netherlands).
Associated partners are:
- Università della Calabria (Italy),
- Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium).
The pedagogical project of the master comes from the close collaboration between partners through the European Research Network of Excellence NanoMemPro.
The Master course has a duration of two years: 4 semesters spent in at least 3 different countries. In the first year, theoretical and practical fundaments are provided. After an integration week, students enter the Master either at Université de Montpellier or at Université Toulouse 3 Paul Sabatier. During the second semester, students follow mandatory teaching units to acquire knowledge and skills on process modelling and simulation at the University of Chemistry and Technology Prague. During the second year, students choose to pursue their training in one of three university in order to acquire specific skills in an application field: Nanosciences and Nanotechnology (Universidad de Zaragoza), Energy and Environment (University of Twente), and Biotechnologies, Food and Health (Universidade Nova de Lisboa). The last semester is devoted to a 6 months master thesis in a university or an industrial company. The number of enrolled students is maximum 30.
The language of instruction is English. Students will be awarded with a multiple Master’s degrees from the three hosting universities, together with a Diploma Supplement.
Deadline for submission of applications for admission with an Erasmus Mundus scholarship: January 31st 2019 (mid-night CET).
Deadline for submission of applications without an Erasmus Mundus scholarship: May 31st 2019 (mid-night CET).

New article in Nature Catalysis journal by UCT Prague researchers.
Abstract of the article
The unique anisotropy and electronic properties of 2D materials have sparked immense interest in their fundamental electrochemistry and wide spectrum of applications. Beginning with the prototype 2D material — graphene — studies into an extensive library of other ultrathin layered structures have gradually emerged. Among these are the transition metal dichalcogenides, layered double hydroxides, metal carbides and nitrides (MXenes) and the black phosphorus family of monoelemental compounds. In this Review, we discuss the similarities of these 2D materials and highlight differences in their electrochemical and electrocatalytic properties. Recent progress on 2D materials for energy-related electrocatalysis in industrially important reactions is presented. Together this shows that dimensionality and surface characteristics are both vital aspects to consider when designing and fabricating compounds to achieve desired properties in specific applications.
