Program Overview

Program Description:
The four-semester Master Programme “Environment and Resources Manage- ment” is composed of the curricula of the renowned MSc Programmes “Programa Multidisciplinario de Posgrado en Ciencias Ambientales” at the Universidad Autó- noma de San Luis Potosí, Mexico and “Technology and Resources Management in the Tropics and Subtropics” at Cologne University of Applied Sciences. Its general objective is to qualify young professionals from Latin America and Germany for a career in the public and private environmental sector as well as for further PhD studies in the field of environmental sciences and natural resources management. The first two semesters are conducted in San Luis Potosí, the third in Cologne while the fourth is reserved for the field research and elaboration of the master thesis, which may be related to a project in any country in Latin America or Germany. Teaching languages are Spanish in Mexico and English in Germany. Students of the Master Programme are prepared to identify, analyze and solve environmental problems, with the aim to formulate solutions which consider technological, economic and social aspects. Furthermore they are qualified to conduct trans-disciplinary basic and applied research in the context of environmental sciences. Science skills and the elaboration of the master thesis topic are fostered from the first semester on, culminating in the research for the master thesis in the fourth semester which also qualifies graduates for future PhD studies. The graduates acquire up to date knowledge regarding recent technologies, concepts, approaches and methods on sustainable and suitable energy systems, integrated land and water management, waste management as well as the decontamination of soils and other resources management topics. In addition, they are equipped with intercultural communication skills, cultural knowledge related to the involved countries and a profound knowledge on international development cooperation institutions and private sector projects. The involvement of a wide range of external experts as invited speakers, field visits in Mexico and Germany to private and public institutions and companies as well as to development cooperation institutions and international organisations related to the environmental sector guarantee a permanent contact towards practice. Furthermore, options to realize internships and to conduct the master thesis in collaboration with ongoing projects are facilitated.
