Double master’s degree programme “Resources and Environment” scheduled to launch in 2022

The new double master's degree programme "Resources and Environment", a joint programme of Tsinghua Shenzhen International Graduate School and Leibniz University Hannover (LUH) scheduled to be launched in winter semester 2022/23, will focus on environmental matters, resource conservation and sustainability. Recently, an agreement was signed in an online meeting. The bilateral degree programme will bring together the benefits of both university systems. In addition to traditional elements of engineering education, the curriculum will include numerous mobility components, as well as practical training and intercultural exchange formats. For this reason, the degree programme will consist of six semesters, unlike most master's degree programmes. Graduates will complete two master's theses, enabling them to pursue a career in Asia and Europe.

In preparation for the agreement, the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geodetic Science at LUH and Tsinghua Shenzhen International Graduate School devised and coordinated detailed plans for the programme. Professor Bin Yang (Vice President and Provost of Tsinghua University) and Professor Christina von Haaren (Vice President for International Affairs and Sustainability of LUH) were present at the signing of the agreement. Professor Yang and Professor von Haaren were significantly involved in the development process for the programme.

Shenzhen is a pulsating Chinese metropolis and innovation hub; Hannover is a leading and internationally renowned location of commerce and industry, trade fairs and science. The strengths of both locations will be incorporated into the double master's degree programme "Resources and Environment".
