The exploitation of fossil resources, environmental degradation and the associated climate change will change our lives. This forces us to fundamentally rethink our way of life and business. The search for raw materials and energy sources that are environmentally and climate-friendly play an essential role.
The Bachelor in Management & Technology (TUM-BWL) with the specialization in “Renewable Resources” is aimed at outstanding, highly motivated high school graduates with university entrance qualifications (e.g. Abitur) who are interested in business administration and, at the same time, want to gain basic knowledge in natural sciences and engineering with a focus on renewable resources and energies, and sustainability. Graduates of this program will be positioned right at the interface of the related professional fields. They will be prepared for a professional career combining business management know-how with sustainable management skills and profound knowledge of the use of renewable resources.
The new specialization is available to students starting the Bachelor in Management & Technology in winter semester 2017/2018. Study location is the new “TUM – Campus Straubing for Bio-Technology and Sustainability”. Here, researchers and students focus on renewable resources to replace fossil oil, coal and gas. The cultivation, chemical and material utilization as well as economic aspects concerning the production, marketing and use of renewable resources is placed in the center of their research and teaching.
Two campuses, one study program
The full Bachelor in Management & Technology program can now be studied both in Munich and in Straubing. Your study location depends on your choice of specialization in natural sciences/engineering:
- Students studying at TUM – Campus Straubing will opt for Renewable Resources as their specialization
- Students studying at TUM’s main campus in Munich will choose 1 of the following 5 specializations (Informatics, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical & Information Technology, Computer Engineering, Chemistry)
In Straubing, with the specialization in renewable resources, the basics in management will be complemented by (the subjects) environmental policy and resource economics, with a focus on their relation to the engineering and natural sciences of renewable resources.
Straubing – a new international lighthouse of biotechnology and sustainability
Campus Straubing is an emerging location of the Technical University of Munich which is developed in close cooperation between the State of Bavaria, the city of Straubing, and companies with sustainability requirements.
Students find excellent conditions for their studies in Straubing. New auditoriums and laboratories as well as stylishly renovated historic buildings are available to all students.
The close cooperation with institutions located on the science campus – the Technology and Support Centre (TFZ), the Central Agricultural Raw Material Marketing and Energy Network (C.A.R.M.E.N. e.V.) and the Fraunhofer Institute – provide further insights into research and open up professional perspectives.
Straubing is a place of short distances. The campus is within walking distance to the city center and located at the banks of the river Danube. The apartment rents are still low. The idyllic location closeto the Bavarian Forest and the colorful variety of cafés and pubs are highly attractive.
