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.
This interdisciplinary program offers outstanding students with degrees in chemistry, physics or materials sciences multi-faceted training in the field of advanced materials, covering the range from nanoparticles to macroscopic matter.
Considering the increasing use of chemicals, it is essential to analyse the impacts of chemicals on the biotic environment and to develop methods for risk assessment and management. This is the aim of ecotoxicology, which as an interdisciplinary science discipline integrates concepts of environmental chemistry, toxicology and ecology.
Toxicology and Epidemiology are two individually diverse but inter-related disciplines where there is an increasing demand for trained scientists, who have the practical skills and theoretical knowledge to operate under new EU legislation, deal with risks associated with emerging technologies and recognise how environmental conditions pose a risk to human health.
The Environmental Studies Taught Postgraduate Programme is designed to encourage the integration of environmental science topics to meet the needs of industry, government organisations and individuals. Choosing this programme will provide a flexible and integrated, multi-disciplinary approach to environmental study.
The Top Master´s programme in Nanoscience aims to train the cutting edge scientists of the future. This is achieved by offering a challenging interdisciplinary programme and by admitting only very talented and motivated students.
Environmental Risk is a multi-disciplinary, international master's programme that gives you scientific knowledge and mothodology to assess and manage environmental issues on a large scale.
This programme provides biology, chemistry, and Earth and environmental science graduates with the advanced skills, knowledge and understanding appropriate for success as technically aware scientists in the environmental industry. The programme also forms an introduction to biogeochemistry for students wishing to progress to a research career.
<p> Toxicology is the study of toxic effects of chemical substances on living organisms and their environment.</p>
The Master’s Programme in Toxicology aims to give advanced understanding of how toxic substances affect biological systems at molecular, cellular and organism levels. The programme is multidisciplinary and includes many different subjects that interact with each other.
Nanotechnology focuses on the design and creation of functional materials, structures, devices and systems by directly controlling matter on the nanometre scale.
Graduates of the Environmental Management and Ecotoxicology degree program have the skills and knowledge necessary to combine technical, economic, scientific and legal aspects in order to develop sustainable solutions.
Master's Degree Programme (MDP) in Environmental Biology (EnvBio) is designed to give the higher university degree (MSc) to students who already have accomplished the lower university degree (BSc)
