What are the causes of the various large scale global environmental issues like climate change? Can we identify options to solve these issues? Are options different in different countries?
The global challenges with respect to the environment and sustainability are huge and can only be addressed in an interdisciplinary approach. Since it is impossible to address all these issues equally in a Master degree programme, specialization is essential. The Energy and Environmental Sciences (EES) programme specializes in energy and is treating it from a natural science perspective. At the same time, the environmental effects of the use of energy and other resources as well as ecosystem services are included in the programme.
