MESPOM is a super fun way to learn about different cultures, explore Europe, and get different perspectives on international environmental issues.

In 2011, after working with a NGO in India applying System Dynamics Modeling for urban water and solid waste management related projects, I was certain I wanted to work in the environmental field. Having a Statistics bachelors degree (with Physics and Chemistry), I knew I needed a thorough grounding in all aspects of the field, and, thus MESPOM was an obvious choice. MESPOM helped me not only build on my natural science foundations, but also gain understanding and confidence in policy and management aspects.

Batch 9 blogs about their thesis time

January 23, 2015

Nine Master candidates in batch 9 will be blogging about their adventures during semester 4, February to June 2015.

Each year, MESPOM-students are venturing out into the world, backed up by their dedicated supervisors from at least one of the six MESPOM Consortium Partners.

Some of them will investigate their topics by travelling to far away places, others will spend their time in the lab.

Although I have graduated more than a year ago, from time to time I still think about the wonderful years of MESPOM. Apart from meeting interesting and clever classmates, I've got excellent academic training in the field of environmental management and policy, especially during my study in IIIEE, Lund University.
