General objectives of the program
The doctoral program in Environmental Science and Technology sets out to provide students with am in-depth view of the environmental issue in the areas of the natural environment, resources, production, transport, distribution and management technology, waste, environmental impact, efficiency, savings and the rational use and treatment of water, land and energy, together with the legal, economic, social, behavioural and management aspects of these, depending on the study paths chosen.

Current demand for very highly-qualified people for jobs in the full range of scientific, technical, social and economic sides of the energy, environment and sustainability sectors, as well as existing ' and particularly future ' demand from students to undertake doctoral studies in these areas are what provide the justification for this program.

The doctoral program is formulated on the basis of a long, productive tradition of contributions from many recognised research groups and high-quality doctoral programs at the University of Barcelona, which gives it a distinctive profile of its own. The aim is for a transversal, interdisciplinary view which at the same time offers the chance to go into depth and specialize in each of the different lines of research of which it is comprised.

On a general level, its objectives are those appropriate to a doctoral program, and are the following:

To provide a suitable setting for building up and passing on scientific advances.
To train new researchers and equip research teams to successfully take on the challenge posed by new sciences, techniques and methodologies.
To foster the training of future teaching staff.
To advance the professional, scientific, technical and managerial development of holders of higher degrees.

On a more specific level, its objectives are:

To understand and resolve the issues associated with the use of a territory, its natural resources and energy, preserving the environment, the external factors involved in production and its impacts, as well as the human, social and organisational behaviours involved
To understand and resolve the issues associated with product design, materials engineering and process management, from technological and economic, organisational and social viewpoints
To equip students with the conceptual, methodological and instrumental tools they need to do their job.

Moreover, it sets out to provide basic knowledge of a theoretical and experimental nature so that research work for the doctoral thesis itself can be conducted successfully.

The committee in charge of the program will establish the training profiles required or recognised (in each case) in accordance with the interest expressed in research programs and previous training
Specific requirements and criteria for admission to the doctoral program and applicant merit rating
The Studies Committee may admit students who come from university master's courses other than those which officially lead to this doctoral program. In deciding whether to admit these students consideration will be given to whether the studies they have completed are similar or in related fields and to the student's interest in carrying out research in one of the areas offered in the doctoral program.

For students who come from the university master's courses which correspond to the training period required for admission, they must have successfully completed the following essential minimum modules:

Master's degree in Water. Interdisciplinary Analysis and Sustainable Management: research paper module
Master's degree in Psychosocial Intervention. Modules: Environment, social behaviour and sustainable development; Methodology in social psychology; Research orientation practicum.
Master's degree in Soil and Water Management: research modules.
Master's degree in Environmental Engineering: research module
Master's degree in Energy Engineering: research modules
Master's degree in Management and Restoration of the Natural Environment: Orientation module in research in the field of environmental management and restoration

In all cases, for admission to the doctoral program candidates must have
successfully completed at least 300 ECTS credits, between their bachelor's degree and university master's degree studies.

Assessment of merits: curriculum vitae, academic transcript of courses completed and submission of a reasoned exposition of the candidate's interest in the program.
