MSc Environmental Technology & International Affairs
High flying careers for a better environment.
This interdisciplinary MSc Program is a joint program of the TU Wien and the Vienna School of International Studies - Diplomatische Akademie Wien, where the first academic year takes place, whereas the second year is located at TU Wien. It is a pioneering project in its combination of international issues and environmental technology.
Over the last few years environmental challenges have taken on a new urgency on a local, regional and global level. In particular, issues regarding the protection and sustainable use of environmental resources have become an existential concern. This puts increasing demands on decision-makers, who require a broad knowledge and understanding of the political, legal, economic and technical issues involved. Everybody concerned, whether as representatives of ministries, international organizations, NGOs or the private sector, has to deal with an ever increasing range of environment related questions.
This postgraduate MSc Program enables graduates to understand and analyze the 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.
