Environmental System Sciences – Natural Sciences-Technology Bachelor’s programme

Course outline, qualifications and competences

The bachelor’s programme Environmental System Sciences - Natural Sciences - Technology is offered as part of the NAWI Graz cooperation programme between the University of Graz and Graz University of Technology. This programme offers a broad basic scientific education in chemistry, physics, Earth sciences and engineering, and basic knowledge of the systematic handling of the connections between human action and resultant environmental change. Besides theoretical basics, students acquire application-oriented knowledge and practical skills in the laboratory, with a focus on dealing with EDP-supported measurement techniques and software-supported data processing in scientific-technological experiments, as well as on principles of analysis, production, transformation, separation and mixing of substances. This programme’s broad scientific orientation enables students to work on sustainable material and energy-related use of raw materials, optimisation of resources and energy saving technologies and analysis and treatment of environmentally relevant problems. Intensive involvement with formal sciences (differential and integral calculus, vector analyses and statistics) promotes analytical, logical and networked thinking. Additional subject areas such as system sciences and organisation and dynamics of man-environment systems complete the programme. Through the self-designed elective course with its environmental focus and a placement in an interdisciplinary team, students learn to tackle realistic problems and to develop communication and team skills, flexibility and the ability to think and act on an interdisciplinary level.

Expected results

Undergraduates will have acquired a sound theoretical and practical knowledge of chemistry, physics, earth sciences and engineering and will be able to understand, analyse and treat environmental change with regard to its causes, processes, structures and development potential. Moreover, they will be familiar with key systemic methods of problem analysis and troubleshooting, thus being able to approach problems while taking scientific-technological as well as economical and social aspects into consideration.
