Study Program

Environmental Engineering

Students of this bachelor program will graduate as environmental engineers. They will be eligible for working in varied fields of the constantly growing sector of environmental services. The course leads to the degree “Bachelor of Science” (B.Sc.) according to international standards.


Bachelor of Science (BSc)


8 semesters


Fall semester

Graduates of the bachelor program Environmental Engineering are trained as experts for following fields:

Environmental protection  and site remediation in the mining sector

Raw material, water and waste recycling

  • Municipal water management (drinking water supply, sewage disposal)
  • Municipal waste treatment and disposal
  • Air pollution control
  • Sustainable management of soils
  • The degree meets the standards of internationally recognized universities.
  • All courses are taught by Mongolian and international teaching staff in English.
  • Courses are strongly practice-oriented, with on-the-job learning phases spent in Mongolian and international companies (the B.Sc. curriculum includes a minimum of 120 days of practical learning).
  • Lectures are given by practicing experts.
  • GMIT cooperates with leading German universities. This offers the possibility to study in Germany while you are enrolled at GMIT, e.g. in the framework of summer schools. Furthermore, study exchanges for one or two semesters are planned.
  • Key competences are taught in special workshops, for example project management, and presentation and communication skills.
  • Students are introduced to social and economic questions which are relevant in the context of resources management, either as part of the degree courses as through extra-curricular activities.
  • For employers, the profile of graduates is particularly attractive, due to their practical and international experiences.

The B.Sc. Environmental Engineering degree course is intended to convey essential knowledge of natural sciences and engineering subjects. The approach of environmental engineers goes beyond the development of technical solutions: Technical expertise and ecological judgment are combined to provide comprehensive solutions.

The studies encompass a wide variety of different disciplines, e.g. biology, geography, engineering and management. Within such collaborations solutions for today’s and tomorrow’s global challenges are developed. Furthermore, these collaborations call for a large extent of interdisciplinary cooperation.  

As all-rounders the graduates of the bachelor program have the knowledge and the ability to become acquainted with relevant details, if necessary. They understand technical aspects as well as the effects of the technology on the environment; they are able to work together with engineers and scientists from various disciplines and ensure that such collaborations become successful.

Above that, graduates are able to handle tasks under differing technical, economic and social conditions. They possess the language skills they need to communicate their technical subject matters in an international professional environment. The new forms of teaching and experiential learning, as well as the modules to instill key competences parallel to the technical studies, all combine to provide a targeted preparation for professional life.
