Global trends show the focus on the protection and monitoring of the environment and sustainable
economic development. This trend is especially supported by European countries aware of the huge
role of technology in environmental protection. On the other hand, the rapid growth of IT is noticeable
in more and more areas of human activity. Environment monitoring is one of the areas which are
subject to computerization. High quality IT systems are built to support gathering and analysing of
environmental data. However, there are also more and more concrete needs from the society related
to environment protection and monitoring. Currently one can also observe a huge increase in the
number of people interested in environmental protection. These trends are being accompanied by the
changes in IT. The increasing number and quality of mobile devices and a wide access to mobile
technologies change the ICT market. Concurrently with the development of the mobile market there
appeared a possibility to have access to low-cost sensors which might be successfully applied to
monitor the quality of the environment. This gives a possibility to share mobile applications supporting
environment monitoring and dedicated to the whole community. Such applications could be developed
in the form of social networks where users share data about the environment and pollution.
Developers of such mobile applications need to have skills to build mobile applications as well as
having knowledge about environmental protection and monitoring aspects.
In order to respond to the market needs, the Lublin University of Technology (LUT) has developed a
new Master’s Programme in computer science. The programme is called “Mobile Application
Development for Environment Monitoring (MADEM)” and it is developed fully in English to support
internationalisation of education at the Lublin University of Technology. This Master’s studies
programme was created with the support of EEA Grants and Norway Grants is a result of the project
“Mobile Application Development for Environmental Monitoring – a New Program of Master Studies in
English”.This paper presents the teaching programme, formal requirements, the process of development of the new specialization as well as the examples of courses’ contents
