Course structure

Master's degree course

The master’s degree course is designed for a standard period of study of 3 semesters and 90 ECTS credits. It concludes with the awarding of the academic degree Master of Science (M. Sc.).

Each semester begins with a project workshop for all students. First-year students learn methods and choose their project topic, which they will work on during the first two semesters. Higher-semester students present their project status and their acquired knowledge. Only the project and master’s thesis are compulsory. Any remaining modules are entirely the students´ choices. The individual academic advisory service will support you to create suitable combinations, considering your existing knowledge, interests and career goals.

The modules offered cover the areas of business & law, ecology, climate and planning, plus environmental technology and immissions control. The compulsory project is designed for students to practice academic and scientific principles and methods, along with project management. Individual modules are offered by lecturers from the University of Sopron, Sopron (Hungary). Students also have the opportunity to spend the second semester abroad at the University of Sopron or another partner university.

Lectures, seminars and practical internships are held during the first two semesters only. The third semester is dedicated to the master’s thesis.
