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 the UT I found a possibility to combine this master study 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.
