The Department of TCE is leading the BSc program on Biology and the development of the new MSc track Future Planet Ecosystem Science and the new BSc program on Future Planet Studies. We are further strongly involved in various courses of the BSc Biology, BSc Future Planet Studies, MSc Earth Sciences and MSc Biological Sciences. We are particularly interested in educating a new generation of scientists with mathematical and computational skills. We engage in interdisciplinary teaching programs at the interface of earth sciences and ecology with additional focus on mathematical and computational methodologies such as GIS and Remote Sensing technology, modelling, and statistics.
MSc and BSc projects
There are many opportunities to get involved in the research of TCE staff members by doing a BSc or MSc thesis projects. If you are interested, please check the research interests of our individual TCE staff members or our Projects and Research applications webpages. Literature review and BSc and MSc thesis research are being supervised individually. The following links provide an overview of potential topics offered by TCE staff members. This list is incomplete and not regularly updated, so please get directly in contact with individual TCE staff members.
