Manage socio-technical change processes in the environmental, energy and water domains.

Do you believe that socio-technical change is needed to make our planet more resilient and sustainable? That such change is required to properly manage the threat of climate change and to protect natural life & resources? Are you eager to gain the knowledge, skills and competencies needed to organise and manage such changes, either locally or internationally? If so, the Master’s in Environmental & Energy Management (MEEM) at the University of Twente is the right choice for you.

This Master's is offered in Leeuwarden, in the province of Friesland, the Netherlands’ most challenging province with respect to environment, energy and water.

Combine knowledge and action

Today’s grand challenges  – especially climate change, but also resource depletion, urbanisation, ecological and socio-economic stress – call for professionals able to organise, manage and lead socio-technical change. This combined focus - on thinking and doing - is at the heart of this Master's. The social science-oriented programme will provide you with knowledge, skills and competencies in various social science disciplines, such as Management, Public Administration, Governance and Law. This will prepare you to lead and manage socio-technical change processes in the industrial, environmental, energy and water domains.

Ton Kempenaar

After a working career of more than 25 years mainly in the agricultural sector I was looking for a new challenge. In the MEEM programme of UT, I found a possibility to combine this master's with my consulting work in the field of renewable energy and water.

Three focal points in sustainable development

The core of this one-year, English-taught programme consists of three interconnected domains of sustainability:

The programme teaches the interrelated management & governance of these three crucial domains, with respect to climate change mitigation and adaptation, resilience, energy transition, circular & social entrepreneurship, and achieving (related) sustainable development goals (SDGs). Graduating in one of the three domains will prepare you for working with multidisciplinary teams in business, government, consultancy or (PhD) research anywhere in the world.
