BSc in Environment and Energy

The future of industrial society lies in the sustainable use of its resources.

6,9 billion people live on earth today, by 2050 there could be 10 billion. The thus resulting need of resources and the realization that they are unlasting show us that they, too, are subject to elementary ecological principles. This being said, the necessity for governments, economy and private households to rethink becomes apparent. In support, the legislative body appears with new schemes such as the law for renewable energies.

In this highly dynamic field, there is a demand for experts with a broad knowledge base who comprehend complex scientific and legal facts of environment and energy, and at the same time are able to integrate the requirements of customers from economy and industry. The aim of instruction in the degree course „Environment and Energy“ is the practical procurement of the necessary knowledge for a well-founded judgment of the ecologically possible and what is ecologically and socially necessary....
