Programme profile

This programme offers an integrated approach towards current environmental issues. Recognising that those issues can no longer be solved by a singular discipline, the course combines the knowledge of several closely related fields. The choice and combination of subjects was strongly influenced by the issues of the Agenda 21.

Classes in fundamental technical subjects are offered as well as classes in natural sciences, sociology and economics. Starting from this base, more specific courses deal with current environmental issues, such as techniques for resource protection, concepts in environmental planning and risk or impact assessment but also with socioeconomic implications. The acquisition of management skills and social competence is therefore valued as highly as the necessary technical and scientific knowledge. The course includes one semester in another country.
