The world is your playground. No one seems to be surprised these days if you say you work in Barcelona or are stationed in Paris. Because of world developments there is a growing demand for young internationally-oriented environmental specialists. You could be one of them.The Environmental Science for Sustainable Energy and Technology programme is about environmental science with an international character. In this highly practical programme, students work in teams with students from all over the world, through a project-based learning system.

Programme content


Subjects are concentrated in 4 core areas:
- Sustainable Energy, Soil and Water, Industrial Ecology and Toxicology/Risk
- Mathematics and Statistics
- Chemistry, Ecology and Biology
- Policy and Intercultural Communication.

In the first and second year you will be divided into teams of no more than 8 students to work on independent projects.Year three begins with an internship of 6 months that you choose with your advisor. These internships range from working for an environmental consultancy to doing research with a research organisation/university. In the second half of the third year, you will study a specialisation in Environmental Consultancy and, in year four you will follow a specialisation in Sustainable Energy.

The second semester of year 4 is the graduation assignment. In year 4 students need to show what they have learned by working on a real environmental problem in a company (government, research, consultancy).
