More information about the Environmental Systems Analysis discipline

The discipline of Environmental System Analysis researches interaction and sets out to understand, describe patterns and behaviour models of different interacting entities that affect the environment and to design and optimise solutions for the issues identified in the environment.

A student of this discipline will study methods and means used to identify, asses, address and solve issues of the environment ranging from climate change and pollution to social, behavioural and policy problems.

The application of this science investigates systems and identifies the components as well as their functioning manner and scope. As a professional you can expect to adapt, modify, expand, improve or create new systems that address and solve the issues that humans are confronted with in their environment.

Suggested Studies

  • Master in Development Practice

    The two-year Masters in Development Practice encompasses an integrated theoretical and practical approach with multidisciplinary training in four “pillars”- health, natural, social, and management sciences. Eighteen core academic modules (link) provide rigorous training across the core pillars, complemented by masters level training in research design, methodology, and methods including training in leading edge quantitative, qualitative, and digital tools and techniques.

  • Master in Climate Studies

    The MSc Climate Studies is targeted to students who wish to focus on the scientific insights in facing climate change and on social economic implications of climate change.

  • Master in Wind Power Systems (Energy Engineering)

    The MSc specialisation in Wind Power System (WPS) focuses on the electrical aspects of wind power systems ensuring an excellent education in subjects such as generators, power electronics, control engineering and power system technology related to wind power applications.

  • Master in Marine Resources Biotechnology

    The Master Program in Marine Resources Biotechnology main purpose is to form professionals with scientific, technical and human capabilities that allow the development of applied research or management activities in the area of marine resources biotechnology.

  • Master in Agricultural Food and Environmental Policy Analysis (AFEPA)

    This European Master's responds to the increasing need to better understand and anticipate the various and often complex socio-economic and environmental effects of these policies, either in a functioning market economy as in the European Union or in economies in a development or transition phase.

  • Master in Sustainable Development

    The Master Programme in Sustainable Development is truly interdisciplinary with students and tutors from many different subject areas. However, all share an interest in sustainable development. The objective of the programme is that you will be fully versed in issues that concern sustainable development from most perspectives – from the basic economic to the extremely concrete aspects, such as how sufficient drinking water can be made available to everyone on our planet.

  • Master in Hydrohasards

    The Laboratory of Hydrology and Aquatic Systems Analysis of the University of Thessaly (Department of Civil Engineering) and the Laboratoire d´ Etude des Transferts en Hydrologie et Environement of Observatoire des Sciences de l´Univers de Grenoble (OSUG) of Université Joseph Fourier - Grenoble I, jointly undertook the direction, co-ordination and organisation of a Greek-French program of postgraduate studies.
