master thesis - CLIMATE NEUTRAL CAMPUS IN EUROPE – THE ECIU UNIVERSITY’S STRATEGIC CHALLENGE

Unique master’s thesis opportunity

ECIU University seeks for learners who take responsibility and shape a sustainable future with new mindsets, behaviours, technologies, and innovations. The big idea for 2022 is to develop a concept for a climate neutral campus.

Background

The UN’s eleventh sustainable development goal (SDG-11) aims at creating sustainable cities and communities. ECIU University supports this goal, and wants to contribute to a more sustainable future. Climate change is one of the major challenges facing global society. Extreme weather, such as droughts and heavy rain, are expected to increase with climate change, and as recent events show, expose unforeseen vulnerabilities. ECIU University can contribute to realizing the SDG by reducing its carbon footprint, and by providing technological solutions that help increase resilience to climate and weather extremes.

Big Idea

To reduce climate change is a very important issue and one of the most discussed questions in politics and society. While climate change outpaces the current scientific understanding, new technology can offer opportunities to face the impact of climate change as well as contributing to making a more climate neutral world. The big idea is to develop a climate neutral campus with innovative ideas and bold solutions and thereby, advance climate protection and reduce CO2 production. Develop a concept that enables your home university or any other university to have a climate neutral campus in the future.

Strategic Challenge – Call for master’s thesis

The strategic challenge involves writing a master’s thesis with respect to a workload of about 900 hours (or about 30 ECTS). Timescale, examination and grading are conducted according to home university guidelines and regulations. Start is in early 2022.
