ISEL’s master's in Quality and Environmental Engineering provides advanced knowledge in environmental technologies and quality engineering techniques, combined with management methods focused in organizational excellence. Our syllabus focuses on topics of the utmost importance for the planning, control and improvement of processes and products, with an emphasis on efficient use of resources, choice of appropriate technologies and business practices – a complete system where competitiveness and sustainability go hand in hand and complement each other.
In the Quality area of our masters, we address the development of management systems centered on the current tools and techniques of this discipline. From product development to quality control and improvement techniques, we promote our students’ ability to design and use efficient experimental strategies that save time in trials and reduce their costs – crucial factors for any organization in our society. In the Environmental area, and in addition to end-of-line technologies and processes, particular emphasis is given to the concepts, methods and processes of eco-efficiency and rational use of resources, with a view to a sustainable production of goods and services – unavoidable considerations when it comes to the protection of human health, the protection of ecosystems, and the much pressing need to find a balance between the two.
In addition to a rich curriculum featuring topics of recognized relevance and a teaching approach heavily based on lab practice, our master's course is taught by an expert faculty which keeps up to date on all current, pertinent issues by virtue of their extensive research activity. Holders of our master’s degree are thus highly skilled and competent professionals, whose training meets the needs of various sectors and industries: pharmaceutical, chemical, petrochemical, aeronautics, water supply and water requalification entities, environmental control and protection entities, regulatory and certification agencies, and state and private labs.
