Environmental careers

The EnvEuro Master degree in Environmental Science will give you access to a wide variety of environmental careers in private companies and public institutions.

Environmental management affects all citizens in modern societies: companies need to think about energy consumption, production and handling of waste and waste water, and atmospheric emissions as well as the sustainability of their products. Food and feed production should be carried out without a reduction in biodiversity, without the eutrophication of streams and lakes, and without polluting groundwater with pesticides. And finally private consumers all of us - need to think about energy, pollution and sustainability in all movements we make. That is - environmental management and problem solving is active at all levels in modern societies.
