Environmental Management and Sustainability Science

The Master of Science Programme in Environmental Management and Sustainability Science at Aalborg University, Denmark, is directed at science and engineering students who are interested in topics related to sustainability and environmental management. The programme is designed to meet these new challenges, by integrating inputs from the social and human sciences into the study of planning and engineering. The focus is on how firms, governments, and other organisations can support sustainable development in an economically efficient and socially acceptable manner.


The Master of Science Programme in Environmental Management & Sustainability Science combines a theoretical orientation with practical project work. This means that you achieve hands-on experience with a range of practical techniques in areas like:

  • environmental planning
  • environmental policy
  • environmental management systems (EMS)
  • corporate social responsibility
  • life cycle assessment (LCA)
  • energy analysis and planning.

You will be able to use different tools for project design, environmental monitoring, quality control and evaluation as well as planning. Furthermore, you will be trained in using cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness methods.

The programme will also provide you with an understanding of the social and political implications of planning and management within the environmental field. This includes an understanding of the relationships between companies and stakeholders, the environmental challenges facing businesses operating on international markets, and an introduction to various types of environmental regulations.
