The Environmental and Resource Management study programme offers an integrated approach to current environmental issues. Recognising that these issues can no longer be solved by a single discipline, the programme combines the knowledge of several closely related fields. Classes are offered in fundamental technical subjects as well as in natural sciences, sociology, and economics. Starting from this basis, more specific courses deal with current environmental issues such as techniques of resource protection, concepts of environmental planning, risk and impact assessment, as well as socioeconomic implications. The acquisition of management and social skills, and technical and scientific knowledge are therefore highly valued and considered indispensable.
