BSc Environment & Resource Management
Brandenburg University of Technology
The course of study “Environmental and Resource Management” offers an integrated approach towards current environmental issues. Recognising that those issues can no longer be solved by a singular discipline, the course combines the knowledge of several closely related fields. The choice and combination of subjects was strongly influenced by the issues of the Agenda 21.
Classes in fundamental technical subjects are offered as well as classes in natural sciences, sociology and economics. Starting from this base, more specific courses deal with current environmental issues, such as techniques for resource protection, concepts in environmental planning and risk or impact assessment but also with socioeconomic implications. The acquisition of management skills and social competence is therefore valued as highly as the necessary technical and scientific knowledge.
The course includes one semester in another country.
Compulsory modules over the three years:
Introduction to ERM
Basic natural sciences
Water and waste
Soil and atmosphere
Geosciences and natural resources
Economic and social instruments of ERM
International environmental law
Corporate environmental protection
Integrated environmental planning
The wide range of elective modules includes subjects in the areas of ecosystems, renewable resources, biochemistry, waste management and philosophy.
Graduates of this programme will be able to develop sustainable solutions in collaboration with experts of the relevant fields. You will be able to coordinate local, national and international measures to protect the environment in a wide range of public and private organisations
