About the M.Sc. Environment and Resources Management

The International Master Programme Environment and Resources Management draws upon the expertise and experience of the well-established and accredited Master programmes Programa Multidisciplinario de Posgrado en Ciencias Ambientales - PMPCA (Universidad Autónoma de San Luis Potosí, UASLP) and Technology and Resources Management in the Tropics and Subtropics - TERMA (Cologne University of Applied Sciences, CUAS). Both programmes are offered at interdisciplinary units of the two prestigious universities.

The general objective of the Master Programme is to qualify young professionals from Latin America and Germany for a career in the public and private environmental sector as well as for further PhD studies in the field of environmental sciences and natural resources management.

The first two semesters are conducted in San Luis Potosí, the third in Cologne while the fourth is reserved for the field research and elaboration of the master thesis, which may be related to a project in any country in Latin America or Germany. Teaching languages are Spanish in Mexico and English in Germany.

Graduates of the international Master programme will be prepared to perform applied research effectively, to work in the private and public environmental sectors and to contribute to technological development.

Graduates of the Master Programme will be able to:

- understand the environmental sectors and concerns in Germany, Mexico and other Latin American countries as well as the related cultural, institutional, political, and economic realms;
- analyse environmental problems following a systematic approach and using adequate tools;
- identify and implement adequate solutions to environmental problems, taking the natural environmental and human dimensions into consideration;
- work successfully in interdisciplinary teams and projects;
- manage projects of international cooperation.

The graduates will receive a double degree of the two involved universities:
• Master of Science "Environmental Sciences" (PMPCA) issued by the Autonomous University of San Luis Potosi, Mexico and
• Master of Science “Technology and Resources Management in the Tropics and Subtropics” (TERMA) issued by the Cologne University of Applied Sciences, Germany.
