High flying careers for a better environment!
Over the last few years the importance of environmental issues and discussions has been increased on a local, regional and global level. In particular, issues regarding the proection and sustainable use of environmental resources have become an existential concern. This puts new and increased demands on people being confronted with the political, juridical, technical as well as economic side of environmental questions. Environmental issues have also become increasingly important and prominent in the field of project management. Also representatives of ministries and international organizations and NGO'S have to deal more and more with environmental questions. This MSc Program is designed to prepare the graduates to deal with international issues.
The TU Wien and the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna are the first institutions in Europe to meet the demand for a university course for (future) managers within the environmental and international field.The Msc Environmental Technology & International Affairs offers a solid base and enables graduates to understand and analyze th relevant scientific and technical issues at the same time as providing them with a sound knowledge of international affairs in order to deal with both current and future challenges concerning the environment and sustainable development.
The combination of studying technical as well as international environmental issues and topics will prepare graduates either for a career as managers, engineers, politicians and diplomats or for employees in top positions who need to assess rationally and who take active part in realising, implementing and managing new standards.
The most important local, regional and global environmental topics will be analyzed from a juridical, economical, political and technical point of view. The Master program is intended to familiarize post graduates with a wide range of various topics and subjects in order to be able to deal with all aspects of environmental issues. The focus of technical issues is the quality management of air and water, the management of resources and energy as well as all issues regarding climate and its development. Additional subjects deal with and summon environmental policies, economical topics, and questions as well as legal issues.
