Program Details

Located on three campuses and with more than 70 study programmes, Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg (BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg) offers a broad spectrum of market-oriented programmes as well as traditional degree programmes.
The MSc course in Environmental and Resource Management offers an integrated approach to current environmental and resource management issues of high importance with the aim of providing a top-level education for future employees of companies, public administrations in the field of the environment, environmental NGOs, international organizations, universities, and research organizations. Recognizing that environmental questions can no longer be solved by a singular academic discipline, the programme offers a broad spectrum of courses ranging from engineering and science to management and socioeconomics. The acquisition of soft skills (e.g., cultural competence) is thus valued as highly and as indispensable as that of technical and scientific knowledge. Due to the small seminar courses and the resulting good lecturer-student ratio, the quality of the study programme is extremely high and allows close interrelation between the students and their academic supervisors.
The Master’s programme is a four-semester study programme. It builds consecutively on the ERM Bachelor’s programme. The idea of the Master’s programme is to provide students with a broad spectrum of environmental courses. The list of provided modules is divided into three main fields: Environmental Sciences, Environmental Management, and Environmental Engineering. Environmental Sciences offers modules of natural sciences and related fields with a specific environmental focus. The field of Environmental Management provides students with different planning and management courses, e.g., business and economics in the environmental background, or evaluation and environmental planning. The third sector, Environmental Engineering, represents the technical part of the study programme.
