General information for the degree programme

The program teaches students to analyse and solve basic questions and problems regarding spatial development and natural resources (e.g. water, soil, biodiversity). Graduates of the programme are able to tackle complex tasks at the intersection of spatial and environmental development that require the integration of scientific perception in a social context. Important topics are:

• Problems and methods of resolution of a sustainable and ecologically oriented urban and regional development
• Development of natural and disturbed ecosystems as well as the protection and regeneration of soil, water, air and genetic resources
• Acquisition of methodological skills (geoinformatics, analysis of contaminants, indication and evaluation of environmental impacts, methods for conflict solving etc.)

Courses range over three semesters; the last semester is dedicated to the preparation of a master's thesis. Students have to attend 7 mandatory courses and 6 out of 23 mandatory electives, which give students the chance to specialise in a direction suitable to their personal interests. Furthermore, students are able to gain practical insights in their working field during a six-week professional practical training.
