In this Master’s of UT, which takes place in Leeuwarden, Friesland, you will become an expert in the management and governance of three crucial, interrelated natural resources: the environment, energy, and water.
Today’s challenges – for example, climate change, resource depletion, and urbanisation – call for professionals able to organise, manage and lead socio-technological change. This combined focus on thinking and doing lies at the heart of this programme. This Master’s will provide you with knowledge, skills, and competencies in disciplines like management, governance, and law. It focuses on the administrative, organisational, and technical causes underlying water, environmental or energy problems – and on strategies for controlling these problems and stimulating sustainable development. You can specialise in the field of energy, environmental, or water management. Upon graduation, you can work in multidisciplinary business, government, consultancy, or research teams.

The specialisation in Energy Management helps you understand opportunities and problems related to the transition towards a more sustainable configuration of societal energy systems, including energy markets, regions, cities, communities, and industries. You will dive deeper into the global energy system, including the underlying governance structures and interdependencies – and use these insights to find implications for change in the energy sector.


The transition towards a green economy is a challenging one, as it requires a fundamental transformation of the way our economy works, including industrial processes, the use of resources, and consumption patterns. Do you want to gain insights into the key concepts and principles that guide management strategies towards environmental and social sustainability? Then the specialisation in Environmental Management is right for you.


The increasing demand for water, coupled with growing populations, climate change, and environmental degradation, has made water management a critical issue for sustainable development and climate change adaptation. So what does it take to safeguard sustainability and resilience of water resources and water supply? The specialisation in Water Management will help you to come up with responsible strategies for the management of water resources and climate change adaptation.
