ISATEC is a study profile in the international postgraduate Marine Biology MSc study programme at the University of Bremen. ISATEC focusses on tropical aquatic ecology and is conducted in collaboration with the Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research (ZMT) and the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (AWI). The study profile aims at the joint education and specialisation of German and foreign postgraduate students in the field of tropical aquatic ecology. Students gain broad knowledge in theoretical and applied ecology, with an emphasis on concepts and methodologies for the sustainable utilisation and conservation of tropical aquatic ecosystems. Thus, general ecology as well as fisheries biology, aquaculture sciences, ecological economics and social sciences relevant to coastal planning and management are crucial parts of the study programme. To meet the worldwide challenges of effectively assessing and managing resource use conflicts in coastal environments, highly qualified personnel is urgently needed. The Master of Science course in Tropical Aquatic Ecology has been developed at the University of Bremen and the Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research in order to meet these challenges by providing young scientists with the necessary knowledge and skills.
