The programme is coordinated at the university level by the Programme Board, consisting of representatives from each faculty. The collaborating faculties are responsible for the delivery of the programme.
The main emphasis of the programme is the students’ research work, so choosing their mentors at the beginning of the study is essential. In addition to acquiring research and laboratory skills, students are also offered theoretical knowledge through the choice of several types of courses. As a rule, all students with various orientations obtain fundamental knowledge on environmental issues by taking two fundamental courses; additional knowledge can be obtained through the choice of elective theoretical and elective research courses consistent with their research interest.
