Program description

The two-year Master's degree programme in Energy and Environmental Sciences has two specializations: Energy and Environment and Experimental studies of greenhouse gases and climate history.

The first specialization has a strong design-orientated, systems-approach character based in natural sciences. What are the possibilities for a sustainable future for a region, for a country or for the world as a whole? What characterizes the optimal transition routes towards a sustainable future? This specialization is linked to the Centre for Energy and Environmental Studies (IVEM). The second specialization, which is linked to the Centre for Isotope Research (CIO), covers the following research topics: the enhanced greenhouse effect, the global carbon cycle and climate history. It focuses on experimental methods, especially using advanced isotope measurements. Both paths include a collective part consisting of three compulsory modules and a specialist part consisting of one or two compulsory modules. In addition, the programmes include an optional part and two research projects. Environmental scientists from the University of Groningen are known for their systems-approach and all-round skills. In general they easily obtain jobs in their field of study, and they have careers in science and also in major consultancy firms, governmental agencies and companies.
