We are excited to offer an exceptional opportunity for students enrolled in our Environmental and Resource Management (ERM) Master's program. Collaborating with the prestigious Universidad Tecnológica de Pereira (UTP) in Colombia, we present a unique double-degree pathway that combines the best of both worlds.

What is the Double-Degree Program?

Our double-degree program allows you to enhance your academic journey by pursuing a Master's degree in Environmental and Resource Management at Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg (BTU) in Germany while also gaining valuable insights and expertise through the Master of Ecotecnología program at UTP in Colombia. This collaborative initiative provides you with a well-rounded education that integrates diverse perspectives, cultures, and methodologies.

Benefits of the Double-Degree Program:

  1. Global Competence: Immerse yourself in two distinct academic environments, enabling you to develop a global perspective and cross-cultural understanding.

  2. Dual Expertise: Acquire comprehensive knowledge in environmental and resource management from both BTU and UTP, enhancing your skill set and employability.

  4. Enhanced Career Prospects: A double-degree not only enriches your education but also enhances your career prospects, making you an attractive candidate for a wide range of global job opportunities.

How Does it Work?

During your studies at BTU, you will complete a portion of your coursework and research projects, then embark on an enriching journey to UTP in Colombia to complement your studies. Both institutions have carefully crafted a curriculum that ensures seamless integration and a holistic learning experience.
