Become a driving force behind the transformation towards a sustainable world.
As humans, we are still heavily dependent on natural resources for our activities, work and survival. However, their massive use leads to exhaustion and has irreversible negative consequences for our climate and the well-being of our planet. To avoid disastrous consequences for our society, we must focus on a more sustainable future by drastically reducing our need for natural resources and moving towards a circular economy.
This master’s program is designed to let you become a driving force in the transformation towards a sustainable world and will equip you with the knowledge and competencies needed to foster sustainable innovation.
