Contents and focus of the degree programme:

The master’s programme in “Environmental Management and Engineering” is characterised by its interdisciplinary and international approach. Students are taught knowledge and methods from technology and natural sciences and also from social sciences, law and economic sciences. The course focuses on responsible and sustainable dealing with our environment and its resources. One focus is on nature-related process knowledge (forest, soil, water, etc.), which is of the same importance both for management and engineering. Graduates will be prepared for a career (mostly in leadership and administrative positions) in the fields of environmental management and development cooperation. They can apply the acquired skills in a profitable way in national and international organisations, e.g. the European Commission, in (free-lance) planning and consulting firms but also in teaching and research. The medium of instruction is English.
