Environmental education at the University of Szeged has been internationally acknowledged for decades. The doctoral school carries out activities concerning the environmental aspects of the fields of chemistry, biology, physics, and geography, among others. Due to the interdisciplinary aspects of environmental science, PhD students of the programme have to choose at least one basic course that is not related to their own research topic and a minimum of four courses related to the research topic of the PhD student. Rigorous coursework develops abilities concerning environmental sciences and specific knowledge in the research fields related to the research programme of the Doctoral School.
The major fields are: Environmental Biochemistry and Biotechnology, Conservation Ecology, Environmental Physics, Environmental Geography, Environmental Geology, Environmental Chemistry and Analytics, Environmental Chemical Technology and Material Science, Environmental Engineering.
Sample research areas: Biotechnology as green chemistry, Population and conservation genetics of arthropods, Photoacoustic spectroscopic gas detection, Evaluation of environmental changes by geographical methods, The role of sulphur in petroleum formation and in coalification processes, Adsorption and photocatalytic decomposition of hydrocarbons derivatives. For more research topics please consult the programme website.
