You want to solve problems like climate change and plastic soup. Environmental Science for Sustainability, Ecosystems and Technology turns you into a versatile environmental professional.
After finishing the Environmental Science for Sustainable Energy and Technology (ESSET) programme you will be able to find solutions to complex sustainable challenges.
For example, a municipality wants to be carbon-neutral by 2040. As a consultant you find ways to reduce their energy consumption and implement sustainable energy sources. You research solar panel yields and develop strategies to reuse CO2 for efficient food crop growth. Your solutions take different perspectives into account like social, economic and environmental points of view.
Through internationally oriented projects, training and courses, during this study you will learn about subjects like sustainable energy technologies, bio-based waste management, biomimicry, clean-up technologies, cost-benefit analysis and environmental policy and law.
The ESSET programme is rooted in the natural sciences, tackling real-world problems and offering project-based solutions. You will gain valuable career-oriented experience through projects for real clients, international field trips and 2 work placements.
You will graduate with a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree.
