About this course
The master of environmental sciences and management will prepare students for working in academic, technical and management areas related with environment. The increasing pressure on natural resources and rising environmental degradation is driving a demand for well-trained professionals in environmental sciences and management both by the private and public sectors. The programme balances research-based modules (e.g. environmental Technologies; ecotoxicology and envronmental Health) with management-related modules (e.g. environmental Management; Creativity, Innovation & entrepreneurship) to train professionals that master the specific concepts and methods of environmental sciences and that are also able to implement environmental solutions in organisations and industries.
A highly qualified body of international researchers from diverse scientific areas supports the programme, allowing students to be integrated in research projects and receive hands-on training in advanced methods and techniques in environmental sciences. This provides a dynamic and engaging learning environment where students can develop skills and acquire knowledge useful for a career in a number of environment-related areas. Ultimately, the programme aims to increase the supply of professionals that can contribute with solutions to the demanding environmental challenges that the world is facing.
