Over the past two or three years, the theme of climate change and environmental protection has found its place in every sphere of our daily life – from national and regional policy, through socially responsible “eco” campaigns of small and big companies to energy – Household appliances and the refusal to use polyethylene bags.
Global climate change and the need for a common policy for sustainable development have the need for experts in the field of ecology, environmental sciences, renewable energy, sustainable development and biotechnology, protection of water sources and so on.
And as the European Union has established itself as a leader in the fight against climate change, Denmark has managed to rank among the countries with the most experience in the field of environmental and environmental protection. Not surprisingly, the country hosted an international conference on climate change, held under UN auspices in December last year in Copenhagen (COP15). The main objective of the conference was the creation of a new general plan of action to replace the Kyoto Protocol (1997).
So it quickly became a preferred destination when it comes to studying ecology related subjects. One of the universities offering the largest selection of specialties in this field is Aalborg University. Over 14,000 students from all over the world are trained here. The university has earned its place among the most prestigious Danish universities.
The strongest interest in the Environmental Management Master Program is preparing specialists with the necessary knowledge and skills to cope with the changes in the climate and the resulting changes in business . The program, which includes one semester internship, combines knowledge from the social and engineering sciences, and the work is organized in groups and projects.
Recently, the Joint European Master in Environmental Studies is being held in cooperation between 4 European Universities – Aalborg University (Denmark), Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Spain), Technische Universität Hamburg – Harburg (Germany) and Universidade de Aveiro (Portugal). The program allows ERASMUS MUNDUS to apply for a scholarship, and a condition for successful completion is that the participants have attended at least two of the listed universities.
The required application documents are a Bachelor’s degree in a specialty resulting from IELTS (over 6.5) or TOEFL iBT (over 80), motivation letter, teacher’s recommendation, CV. The duration of the magistrates is two years and the deadline for application is May 1. Students from the EU Member States are exempted from annual training fees.
Why is Green Education one of the most promising areas at the moment? The European Commission has set a 20-20-20 target, to reduce emissions of harmful gases in the EU by 20%, share of energy from renewable sources to reach 20%, and to increase energy efficiency by 20% by 2020. Add emissions trading and the need, big company to have staff responsible for optimizing production processes from an ecological point of view, and you will see the thousands of opportunities that stand before you after graduation.
