Programme description

The Faculty of Environmental Sciences (University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn, Poland) and the Faculty of Mechanics and Engineering (University of Applied Sciences in Offenburg, Germany) invite to apply for a master’s course that has been conducted since 2008/2009 for international students. Courses start in the spring/summer semester. One semester will be spent in Offenburg and one in Olsztyn. In the third semester students may choose their place of study. After successfully completing three semesters, students earn a “double MSc” and are awarded certificates from both universities. All students participate in real-world projects, in addition to attending lectures and lab classes. Students solve problems related to the use of the natural environment using various technologies. They learn how to use advanced research techniques to draw conclusions about the state of the environment. Our graduates have the necessary skills and attitudes for a successful career in industry or academic institutions.
