Program Description

The planet needs problem solvers. The bachelor in Environmental Science for Sustainability, Ecosystems, and Technology (BSc) will transform you into an ambitious environmental professional.

After finishing the Environmental Science for Sustainability, Ecosystems, and Technology (ESSET) program you will be able to find solutions to complex sustainable challenges.

For example, a municipality wants to be carbon-neutral by 2040. As a consultant, you find ways to reduce energy consumption and implement sustainable energy sources. You research solar panel yields and develop strategies to reuse CO2 for efficient food crop growth. Your solutions are financially viable and accepted by both industry and the public, taking into consideration future developments, technologies, and policies.

Through internationally oriented projects, training, and courses, during this study, you will learn about subjects like sustainable energy technologies, bio-based waste management, biomimetics, clean-up technologies, cost-benefit analysis, and environmental policy and law.

The bachelor in Environmental Science for Sustainability, Ecosystems, and Technology (BSc) is rooted in the natural sciences, tackling real-world problems and offering project-based solutions. You will gain valuable career-oriented experience through projects for real clients, international field trips, and 2 work placements.
