Bachelor in Environmental Engineering
The 3-y Bachelor Degree in Environmental Engineering (LEA) provides the necessary skills to start a professional career in the field of Environmental Engineering, as well as the pursuit of master''s studies, especially in the Environmental Engineering Master Degree. The Environmental Engineering course by NOVA School of Sciences and Technology has been a pioneer for over 40 years, combining basic engineering skills (mathematics, physics, chemistry, computing) with natural sciences (such as biology and ecology) and social sciences, integrating technological, ecological, economic and social issues.
Understand the functioning of natural systems; identify and analyze the pressures on environmental systems and how they can be overcome; evaluate and manage natural resources such as water and energy; understand industrial, urban and technological processes; and to identify solutions and opportunities for innovation, are competences and capabilities provided by the course LEA. The focus is on holistic training and systemic thinking, analytical skills, innovation and collaborative models. The ultimate goal of Environmental Engineering is to provide solutions for economic and social activities aligned with the sustainable development.
The interdisciplinary nature of the Bachelor Degree in Environmental Engineering offers its graduates a unique profile for working on multiple interfaces, particularly useful for dealing with complex systems, and for exploring job opportunities in a wide range of professional contexts. Graduates in Environmental Engineering add value to any organization that has to deal with environmental and sustainability issues.
The current high level and quality of employability of Environmental Engineering professionals, in the national and global market, will expand in view of the ecological transition that economies are starting to adopt. Professional opportunities in many fields include consulting, auditing or service and utilities companies, industry, public organizations such as municipalities or regional government, international organizations such as the European Commission, European Environment Agency or other European organizations.

(a) 6 ECTS in courses chosen by the student on a list approved annually by the Scientific Council of FCT NOVA, which includes the unity of all scientific areas of FCT NOVA.
Conditions of admittance
The evaluation of all UCs is continuous for all the components that integrate it, and it must be completed by the last day of the school term of the academic semester.
The continuous evaluation of a UC must include a minimum of three elements in the set of evaluation components, on dates adequately spaced throughout the period of classes.
All UCs with a theoretical-practical evaluation component must provide, in addition, a form of evaluation of this component by exam, to be carried out after the period of classes (Examination of Appeal).
All requirements and conditions related to the evaluation of the UC, namely the minimum weights and classifications, if any, of each component, as well as the Frequency conditions, are defined a priori and, mandatorily, published in the Discipline Form.
For each UC, combinations of three evaluation components are allowed: (i) Theoretical-practical evaluation; (ii) Laboratory or project evaluation; (iii) Summative assessment.
