Autumn 2016 will mark the start of the interdisciplinary degree program Sustainable Management of Resources, which was developed in partnership with companies and government agencies. Given the global social challenges of climate change, scarcity of resources, waste management and avoidance and the increasingly stringent environmental legislation associated with all this, the primary focus of the degree program is on designing and optimizing sustainable inter-organizational value chains in companies, from product development to disposal and recycling. Therefore the degree program combines engineering, natural sciences, methods of resource management, business administration and environmental law.
What we offer you
The degree program was developed on a needs-oriented basis together with production and waste management companies and government agencies. These companies and agencies will provide high-caliber experts as lecturers, support extensive internships and grant deep insights into their facilities and infrastructure through excursions. This network of companies and agencies will provide opportunities for research and development projects and will enable you to make valuable contacts for your future career already during your studies. The Vienna Biocenter, the top life sciences address in Austria, also provides the perfect learning atmosphere with its well-equipped lecture halls and laboratories for chemistry and microbiology. The degree program shares this FH-location with the bachelor's degree programs of Packaging Technology and the Biotechnology Department. In many occasions you will benefit from FH Campus Wien as a multidisciplinary university with interdisciplinary activities for example in the area of research and development, as well as events such as the Campus Lectures, public lecture evenings with prominent experts, that FH Campus Wien regularly invites you to join.
