Master of Science in Environmental Technology and International Affairs (MSc)
This postgraduate MSc Program is the result of the cooperation between the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna and the TU Wien. Over the last few years, the importance of environmental issues and discussions has been increased on a local, regional and global level. This puts new and increased demands on people being confronted with the political, juridical, technical as well as the economic side of environmental questions.
The Master Program offers a solid base and enables graduates to deal with challenges in this field. Environmental issues have also become increasingly important and prominent in the field of project management. Also, representatives of ministries and international organizations, and NGOs have to deal more and more with environmental questions. This MSc Program is designed to prepare graduates to deal with international issues.
The combination of studying technical as well as international environmental issues and topics will prepare graduates either for a career as managers, engineers, politicians, and diplomats or for employees in top positions who need to assess rationally and who take an active part in realizing, implementing, and managing new standards.
