Which of the three specialisations suits you best?
During your Master’s in Environmental & Energy Management, you will choose a specialisation. This way, by personalising your programme, you get to develop your expertise within a specific domain. Your choice determines the type of case project you will work on in your second semester, as well as the research theme(s) you will cover in your master’s thesis.
Whichever specialisation you choose: you will still develop solid expertise in the areas of the other specialisations as well, as these are highly interconnected.
The Master’s in Environmental & Energy Management has three specialisations:
The specialisation in Energy Management helps you understand opportunities and problems related to the transition towards a more sustainable configuration of societal energy systems, including energy markets, regions, cities, communities, and industries. You will dive deeper into the global energy system, including the underlying governance structures and interdependencies – and use these insights to find implications for change in the energy sector.
The transition towards a green economy is a challenging one. It requires a fundamental transformation of the way our economy works, including industrial processes, the use of resources, and consumption patterns. Do you want to gain insights into the key concepts and principles that guide management strategies towards environmental and social sustainability? Then the specialisation in Environmental Management is right for you.
The increasing demand for water, coupled with growing populations, climate change, and environmental degradation, makes water management a critical issue for sustainable development and climate change adaptation. So what does it take to safeguard the sustainability and resilience of water resources and water supply? The specialisation in Water Management will help you to develop responsible strategies for the management of water resources and climate change adaptation.
