Environmental System Sciences – Climate Change and Environmental Technology Master’s programme

Course outline, qualifications and competences

The master’s programme Environmental System Sciences / Climate Change and Environmental Technology (ESS / CCET) is offered as part of a NAWI Graz co-operation programme between the University of Graz and Graz University of Technology and is taught in English. It provides research-oriented education focussing on the analysis and assessment of environmentally relevant physical and chemical parameters as well as on the sustainable design of technological processes within the framework of European and global regulations in connection with data analysis and modelling on the basis of system sciences. In addition, various options are open for in-depth study: Climate and Climate Change (Physics / Wegener Center), Environmental Cycles in Hydro and Lithosphere (Geosciences) and Environmental and Energy Technology (Chemistry, Process Engineering). Students are thus equipped to gain qualified knowledge in subject areas such as climate, characteristics and consequences of climate change, processes in geosciences as well as to investigate possibilities and basic conditions of sustainable environmental technology. At the same time, state-of-the-art knowledge and possible courses of action within the scope of natural sciences and technology are consistently taken into account. Students are able to consolidate their performance profile by gaining practical experience within an interdisciplinary team – both during project work and problem assessment and troubleshooting.

 

Expected results

Graduates of the master’s programme Environmental System Sciences / Climate Change and Environmental Technology will have gained outstanding skills in interlinking state-of-the-art knowledge within various different academic disciplines and tackling interdisciplinary tasks and problems, while also considering aspects relating to natural science and technology, as well as social and economic issues. In addition, students will be able to deal with and counteract complex and often confusing problems independently using adequately sustainable strategies and measures.
