This programme is a joint programme of the Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague (“CZU”) and the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna, Austria (“BOKU“) in which both universities jointly award a Master of Science in Natural Resources Management and Ecological Engineering (NARMEE).
This joint programme offers unique education and research opportunities at the individual departments of both universities. Students enrolled in this programme are very flexible and can build their own study profile. They acquire deep knowledge in the management of major natural resources, including their restoration. Apart from the major compulsory subjects, they can build their own minor in the Fundamentals of Natural Resources, with an additional slight modification for environmental or ecological disciplines.
A student enrolled at the home university has to spend at least one semester at a partner university to sign up for the offered subjects and for laboratory work with their co-supervisor.
The Diploma thesis (DT) has to be completed under the supervision of the supervisor of the home university and co-supervisor from the partner university. The delivering of the DT takes place at the home university in front of a committee consisting of staff from both universities.
The major advantages of studying this programme are: graduation from two highly recognized universities, obtaining a deep knowledge of major environmental components and their management, gaining great language skills and ability to adapt to new environments that enable the acquisition of positions around the world, and the development of a new friendship with the international group of students who come from all over the world.
