About

The master's programme Ecology and Ecosystems (MEC) at University of Vienna focuses on an understanding of ecosystem processes, as well as of the connection between biodiversity and the functionality of ecosystems. 

Overview

It addresses fundamental problems in ecology in a holistic way. Core topics are the role of organisms in the functionality of ecosystems, and the factors responsible for the spatial and temporal variations in biodiversity and functioning of systems. 

Learning outcomes

The Ecology and Ecosystems study programme at University of Vienna takes both an organismic and an ecosystem-based approach to ecology - thereby complementing two related curricula at the University of Vienna. These are Environmental Sciences, which is strongly rooted in geosciences, and Conservation Biology & Biodiversity Management (in German language), which is specifically devoted to the theory and practice of nature conservation - from the species to the landscape level.
