A Master of Science or MSc is a postgraduate degree typically in the fields of sciences and social sciences. MSc may be course-based, research-based, or a mixture of the two.
Sustainability put into practice could take many different forms, effecting both the individual and the larger community. There are ecovillages and sustainable cities created just for the purpose of minimizing the use of important resources. There are also techniques, such as sustainable architecture, which help promote this ideal.

Our course is for engineers and scientists who want to play a leading role in innovating, designing and managing sustainable processes and systems. Improving resource efficiency is a major priority for process industries that rely on materials and energy. Our course focuses on addressing this challenge by giving you the tools to find sustainable ways to do more or better with less.
This course allows you to explore the field in a variety of ways: choosing an environmental, geographical or mixed pathway and touching on contemporary themes from food security to urban planning and beyond.
This course includes two streams, MSc/PgDip Design Engineering with Sustainability and MSc/PgDip Design Engineering with Advanced Product Development. It aims to address the issues associated with a rapidly changing market and the demands for better, cheaper and personalized products developed within the shortest possible time. It will provide a thorough training in design theories and process models, design methods, design techniques, computer-supported product modeling, analysis, evaluation and digital and physical rapid prototyping of a design solution.
Gain a solid understanding of sustainability issues relating to corporate social responsibility. You’ll also develop your skills in the core business areas with this innovative MSc.
In the two-year track Future Planet Ecosystem Science of the Master’s programme Earth Sciences, you will learn quantitative methods and gain an in-depth understanding of concepts of geo-ecological systems, essential to face the grand challenges regarding global change, the management of ecosystems, and their services upon which humans rely.
This programme will enable learners to carry out research on a range of focused topics, involving data collection, critical analysis, and interpretation and to present them in a report format. Management for Sustainable Development’s main philosophy is that for business to be sustainable in the long-term, a manager must effectively manage the whole of the business’ resources, including environmental, economic and social resources, from a sustainable, global perspective.
Environmental processes and dynamics encompass many aspects of physical systems on global, regional and local scales. Accelerating climate change alters hydrological processes and biogeochemical turnover rates, affect landscape dynamics and ecological systems. These changes impose fundamental research challenges and, as a consequence, increase the volume of spatial data. These changes are studied by the Institute of Geography in Erlangen from different research perspectives.
A flexible Masters degree designed to develop a rigorous understanding of transformational responses to the pervasive effects that economic structures and environmental change are having on a diet, health, sustainability and community empowerment.
The program targets graduated professionals with working experience in public or private institutions, authorities and enterprises of the natural resources sector. The applicants should have an interest in learning and work in an intercultural and multidisciplinary environment.
The master program “Natural Resources Management & Development” (NRM) provides a practice-oriented and skills-based learning experience in which students develop their capacity for critical thinking and creative problem-solving. It addresses bachelor’s degree holders principally of Engineering, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences, who aim to deepen their knowledge in Natural Resources Management and wish to acquire management and leadership skills as well as regional and intercultural competences. These experts ought to be able to assess natural resources and develop appropriate solutions considering the complex linkages with economic, social and ecological aspects.
Adequate availability of clean water is indispensable for food supply and health and hence key for the development of societies worldwide. However, pressure on water resources is increasing due to fast demographic and socioeconomic growth and unsustainable water uses. The concept of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) combined with current climate change adaptation best practices offers solutions to deal with these challenges by assessing and managing this precious resource in space and time considering other related sectors.
Current global trends such as population and economic growth as well as climate change exert increasing pressure on water resources worldwide, which are the basis for food production, urban and industrial water supplies and hydropower. For bilateral projects between Germany and Arab countries, there is a need for experts being familiar with the culture, language, and politics of both sides and are skilled in intercultural communication. The MSc »IWRM« has the objective to form such experts and to promote the concept of IWRM in the context of German-Arab cooperation.
Current global trends such as population and economic growth as well as climate change exert increasing pressure on water resources worldwide, which are the basis for food production, urban and industrial water supplies and hydropower. Experts are needed who understand that multiple problems of water resources management can only be addressed through a holistic approach considering both technical and socioeconomic problems of resources use. These experts should also have knowledge of the practices of project funding and international cooperation.
This programme deals with the multifaceted challenge of developing products, services and technical systems that contribute to increased resource-effectiveness and sustainability.
This course combines the principles of sustainable development with an examination of the various systems of food production in the context of providing a secure supply to meet the ever-changing requirements of a growing world population. It provides an opportunity for graduates or professionals in other disciplines to direct their careers towards agriculture and food supply.
