Issues like global warming, pollution and cradle to cradle interest you. The Environmental Science for Sustainable Energy and Technology programme will turn you into an environmental professional.
The local authority in a city wants to be CO2 neutral by 2040. You are part of a consultancy team. You find ways to reduce the energy consumption and utilise suitable sustainable energy sources. You research the availability of solar power, hydropower, geothermal power, wind power and biomass. Your solution is financially viable and accepted by both industry and the public. You take into consideration future developments, techniques and policies.
You want to keep the planet safe for future generations. You are interested in science subjects and you have an open mind towards other cultures. You are a team player and, at the same time, self-motivated. And you are adventurous and independent.
Through several projects and courses, you will learn about sustainable energy techniques, their suitability in specific situations, bio-based waste management, energy conservation, cost-benefit analyses, stakeholder analyses and also environmental policy and law. Given the international character of the student group, you will learn about these subjects in relation to different parts of the world.
If you pass the programme, you will become a Bachelor of Applied Sciences (BAS).
