The Master’s in Environmental and Energy Management (MEEM) at the University of Twente (UT)  is offered in Leeuwarden, in the province of Friesland, the Netherlands’ most challenging province with respect to environment, energy and water.

Today’s grand challenges  – especially climate change, but also resource depletion, urbanization, ecological and socio-economic stress – call for professionals able to organize, manage and lead socio-technical change. This combined focus, on thinking and doing lies at the heart of the MEEM programme. Its social science-oriented Master’s will provide you with knowledge, skills and competencies in various social science disciplines, such as Management, Public Administration, Governance and Law. This will prepare you to lead and manage socio-technical change processes in the industrial, environmental, energy and water domains.


A majority of our graduates (just under 40%) get a job with governmental or non-governmental organizations. For instance, they may play a pivotal role within a municipal, provincial, national or international water, energy or environmental authority. Many graduates also join a large company, a non-governmental organization (NGO) or an educational organization, or carve out a career at a consultancy firm or a research centre.


The programme holds NVAO accreditation.
