Environmental Toxicology, Technology
and Management

This area of specialization is jointly offered by AIT, Chulabhorn Reesearch

Institute (
www.cri.or.th
) and Mahidol University (
www.mahidol.ac.th
) with

assistance from a team of international experts from the United States,

Europe and the United Nations Environment Program. This multi
-
disciplinary,

inter
-
university program is a combination of toxicology and toxicology

related health sciences, biotechnology and environmental engineering.

The goal is to train students to deal with discharge of toxic chemicals from

an international and regional perspective and to conduct research and

development in areas of environmental and industrial toxicology, hazardous

waste treatment and environmental management. Remediation techniques

of polluted sites focusing on local plant species in combination with native

soil flora and fauna are also focused.

The Urban Water Engineering and Management programme is jointly offered by the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) and
UNESCO
-
IHE Institute for Water Education (UNESCO
-
IHE). The UWEM programme is a double degree programme.


Students who successfully complete this programme will be awarded two Master degrees: one from UNESCO
-
IHE and one from
AIT. The degree students receive from UNESCO
-
IHE is the degree in Municipal Water and Infrastructure, with a specialisation in
Urban Water Engineering and Management. AIT will award the degree of Master of Engineering in Urban Water Engineering and
Management.

Programme structure and contents


The Urban Water Engineering and Management
Programme offers students the possibility to
study in Bangkok, Thailand, and in Delft, the
Netherlands, at two renowned institutes for
international post
graduate education: AIT and
UNESCO
-
IHE.


The coursework part of the programme starts at
AIT in Bangkok in August, where students follow
a number of courses until the second half of
December. In early January, they move to Delft
where they join students in UNESCO
-
IHE’s
Municipal Water and Infrastructure programme
for five modules and the international field trip.
Students then have the option to either remain
in Delft (Option 1) or move back to Bangkok
(Option 2) for their additional coursework and
individual MSc thesis research work.
