The master's program contributes to the development of innovative land-use strategies and offers solution approaches to the prevention and elimination of environmental problems in the context of global change in order to sustainably improve people's lives and coexistence.

The master's program has an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary character. The program is therefore aimed at those with a university degree in environmental, nature conservation, land use and / or planning related disciplines. This includes, in particular, students with university degrees in landscape architecture and landscape planning, biology, geography, environmental engineering, forestry, agricultural sciences or comparable degree programs completed at German or recognized foreign universities with a Bachelor or equivalent. 

Master’s graduates in Ecological Engineering are experts in ecosystem management. Through the study program, they are enabled to develop, execute, monitor or evaluate all ecosystem management steps separate and together. They can identify land use conflicts and impacts of land use on ecosystems and develop and manage interdisciplinary environmental planning.
