While existing technologies have yet to help solve the earth’s environmental challenges, emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and the proliferation of big data hold enormous promises to help humanity achieve more sustainable and inclusive societies.
The MSc Green Tech & Sustainable Societies aims to prepare students to become responsible leaders of tomorrow’s world. Join an innovative learning ecosystem that will enable you to think critically, using both your hard and soft skills to evaluate and design practices, technologies, and systems that bring sustainable solutions to communities and organisations.
Future managers of sustainable green tech enterprises are expected to have a strong background in the understanding of sustainability, as well as how to apply this technology in a historical, political and socioeconomic context. Advanced skills in green tech management and green tech knowledge are also required. According to a report from PwC, the green sector is expected to grow exponentially over the next decade and offer great employment opportunities to graduates who specialise in this field.
The MSc Green Technology & Sustainable Societies teaching methods adopt a very hands-on approach of skill and knowledge acquisition. You will take part in interactive discussions with instructors and experts, explore case studies of contemporary organisations as well as participate in activities outside the classroom (conferences, seminars, and professional networking events). Practical projects will encourage you to find and develop a competitive advantage for companies specialising in chemicals and materials, transport and mobility, and energy transition.
