Institute for Technology and Resources Management in the Tropics and Subtropics (ITT)
In order to be able to reliably supply humanity with water, food and energy in the future, we need solutions for the demographic, economic and climatic changes of the present. To manage our scarce natural resources, we need new strategies and experts who can analyze complex human-environment systems and develop solutions. The ITT aims to produce and promote such experts. In this context, we see different technical and cultural backgrounds as an enrichment.
With over 40 years of experience in teaching and applied research, the ITT is a reliable educational and cooperation partner. With our interdisciplinary and intercultural approach, we also offer high-quality programs at postgraduate level. We want our graduates to think and go beyond their own – professional and personal – boundaries. That is why we consistently implement the concept of lifelong learning with training and modern teaching and learning methods. In this way, our alumni become future decision-makers in international cooperation and part of a global network of scientists, experts and practitioners in the sustainable management of natural resources.
Global network included
Our extensive network and numerous collaborations with relevant players in development cooperation and higher education - at regional, national and international level – also make the ITT a valuable strategic partner in sustainable resource management.
