Environmental Chemistry is the science of processes that influence the composition and chemical properties of the environment, proper for habitation. It is concerned with the background, behaviour, movement and impact of chemical compounds in all layers of the environment. It researches the means through which the human factor affects these layers. Environmental Chemistry utilizes knowledge and tools from other sciences in the study of air, water and soil. It addresses issue of contamination and degradation and it aims to exploit theoretical knowledge for creating solutions to the aforementioned problems.
Environmental Toxicology is more focused on the destructive effects of chemical agents on the living organisms of all ecosystems. Empowering the knowledge provided by biology, computer science, math and chemistry, it sets out to understand and prevent harmful impact caused by toxic agents.
The Graduate Certificate in Alcohol and Drug Studies is available to graduates of medical, nursing, psychology and other allied health disciplines. The program has been designed to provide graduates from medical, allied health (including psychology) and nursing degrees with core skills to respond to substance misuse in a range of health settings, including those which focus on psychological health, mental health nursing, medical practice, social work, occupational therapy, and Indigenous health settings.
Agronomy is the application of plant and soil science to crop production and includes the study of plant breeding, genetics, biotechnology, molecular biology, physiology, biochemistry, weed control and crop management.
The Environmental Risk Assessment Certificate provides a solid foundation in the characterization of source areas, linking fate and transport mechanisms, and evaluating exposure pathways to assess environmental risk.
This degree provides the student with curriculum and research opportunities in one of the world’s most significant science and policy issues: the environment. Students will study ecosystems management, the impact of industrialization on the environment, economics and resource availability, regulation and law, environmental ethics, landscape-level conservation, political ecology, and environmental technology and management.
This program provides a one-year training in the field of atmospheric sciences at the highest level. It offers courses in physics and chemistry given that an interdisciplinary approach is essential to understand atmospheric processes.
This course provides recent graduates with training in current analytical techniques, scientific and transferable skills applicable for environmental chemistry research.
The Master Program in Marine Resources Biotechnology main purpose is to form professionals with scientific, technical and human capabilities that allow the development of applied research or management activities in the area of marine resources biotechnology.
The SMaP Masters aims to train future professionals and scientists capable of meeting the challenges presented by fast-moving changes to legislation and to the fast-paced development of depollution fields and technology in industrialised countries - people who are also capable of implementing this technology in emerging countries.
The master programme Chemical Engineering for Energy and the Environment will give you efficient engineering tools to help in solving future challenges on how to best use our energy- and natural resources.
There are many thousands of chemicals affecting the environment in our modern society, and their use is increasing rapidly.
The master’s programme provides excellent basis for post-graduate studies. The master’s programme requires full time studies for a Master of Science degree in two years.
