Message from the CEO

The IMAT – Master in International Material Flow team has the vision to train young and motivated students from all over the world in International Material Flow Management based on the experiences that we gained through the project work with companies and city authorities all over the world in order to establish sound and sustainable waste management systems, water management systems or renewable energy systems.

Our faculty consists of various specialists from different research areas with international experience. Whether they are specialists in mechanical engineering, microeconomics, communication and ethics or IT systems, renewable energies and environmental policy, our faculty members all share the key idea of managing a better, more sustainable world. This vision becomes reality through innovative environmental technologies, professional business plans, and efficient systemic management strategies.

Hence, IMAT is not just focusing on the theoretical background of Material Flow Management. With the support of our lecturers, you will develop a large number of real projects. Therefore, you will gain the practical experience that you need for successfully starting your international career in the field of green business.

Not only the contents and approach of the IMAT programmes are unique but also the study surrounding on-site the Environmental Campus Birkenfeld, the first Zero-Emission Campus in Europe featuring various state-of the art environmental technologies.

Take the chance, study IMAT, discover the secret!
