Are chemistry and biology your favourite subjects? In the Dutch-taught bachelor programme Environmental Innovation you use chemistry and biology to later advise companies on zero waste production, sparing raw materials and contribution to prosperity and a healthy environment.


About the programme

The courses are aimed at water, air, energy and soil. You'll learn about topics such as climate change, water supply around the world, soil contamination, energy supply and more. Also, topics such as environmental policies and environmental law are subjects you will learn about in your first year.

International perspective

Environmental issues require an international perspective. That's why you'll do traineeships both in and outside the Netherlands. The practically-oriented study programme Environmental Innovation shows you how to use different perspectives for shaping sustainability.
