TH Köln in Deutz

TH Köln in Köln Deutz

New demographic, economic and climate pressures on the availability of safe and sustainable supplies of food, water and energy require new strategies to manage our precious natural resources. In order to face this global challenge, the demand for experts who can analyse complex human-environmental system and develop suitable solutions is growing. Tropical and subtropical regions represent a special case as they often have additional challenges and exhibit highly unstable environment. The Institute for Technology and Resources Management in the Tropics and Subtropics (ITT) at the TH Köln (University of Applied Sciences) aims to enable people of various technical and cultural backgrounds to better solve the complex issues related to environmental problems with an interdisciplinary and intercultural approach at the graduate and postgraduate level. Studying at the ITT does not only mean achieving a master’s degree, but going beyond one’s professional and personal boarders. Through manifold trainings and modern methods of teaching and learning, we realize the concept of lifelong learning and put the student in the center of our education efforts. We believe that our alumni are an important part of the global  network of scientists and professionals. We cooperate with key regional, national and international organizations within the fields of resources management, development co-operation and higher education in addition to providing teaching, research and capacity development worldwide.

Prof. Dr. Ramchandra Bhandari is the Executive Director of the ITT since December 1st, 2021.

In 2019  Prof. Dr. Lars Ribbe became Founding Dean of Faculty of Spatial Development and Infrastructure Systems with its new foundation at the TH Köln.

Prof. Dr. Udo Nehren became Vice Founding Dean of Faculty of Spatial Development and Infrastructure Systems for Teaching.
