The International Master of Environmental Sciences (IMES) was developed in 2004 by representatives of six Cologne Faculties, including the Medical Faculty with Prof. Dr. Thomas Erren as coordinator. It has been accredited in 2007. Foreign students from all over the world graduate in IMES after passing four terms in two years.

Lectures Summer Term 2020  | Download 

Due to COVID-19 control measures in operation at the University and the University Hospital, there will be no in-class lecture for this summer semester. Instead, lecture content will be emailed to registered students on the planned lecture dates in MS PowerPoint slide with accompanying audio and/or PDF formats.

As the new term start date has been delayed by 2 weeks, the “Non-ionising radiation and cancer” lecture will now be made available on the April 21st and the “Plastics and health” lecture has been postponed until June 16th, 2020.

End of semester exam details are yet to be confirmed; however, we will inform students of any decisions in good time.

Please contact Dr Philip Lewis at  with any queries you may have regarding these changes.

We wish you much success for the coming semester!

Univ-Prof. Dr. Thomas C. Erren (module coordinator)
