Environmental System Sciences / Climate Change and Environmental Technology

Course outline, qualifications and competences

The Master’s Degree Programme in Environmental System Sciences / Climate Change and Environmental Technology (ESS / CCET) is offered as part of a NAWI Graz cooperation programme between University of Graz and Graz University of Technology and is taught in English. It provides research-based education focussing on the analysis and assessment of environmentally relevant physical and chemical parameters as well as on the sustainable design of technological processes with reference to the European and global regulations framework and in connection with data analysis and modelling on the basis of system sciences. In addition, students have various options for specialisation: Climate and Climate Change (Physics / Wegener Center), Environmental Cycles in Hydro and Lithosphere (Geosciences) and Environmental and Energy Technology (Chemistry, Process Engineering). In this way, students gain expert knowledge in subject areas such as climate sciences, the characteristics and consequences of climate change, and processes in geosciences, and are able to investigate possibilities and basic conditions for sustainable environmental technology. At the same time, state-of-the-art knowledge and possible courses of action within the scope of natural sciences and technology are consistently considered. Students are able to gain practical experience by joining an interdisciplinary team – both during project work and problem assessment and troubleshooting.

Expected results

Graduates of the Master’s Degree Programme in Environmental System Sciences / Climate Change and Environmental Technology will have gained outstanding skills in connecting their state-of-the-art knowledge within various different academic disciplines and approaching interdisciplinary tasks and problems, while also considering aspects related to natural science and technology, as well as social and economic issues. In addition, students will be able to understand and solve complex and often confusing problems independently using appropriate sustainable strategies and measures.
