The discipline of Environmental Technology is concerned with the sustainable development of the human society and applies the knowledge, experience and innovation in the field of technology to investigate, design and protect the environment and the scarce natural resources.
Sustainable energy production and consumption, Water, Soil and Air purification, Environmental Damage prevention, control and remediation are some of the central pursuits of Environmental Technologies. Professionals in this field are constantly researching, improving or designing green technology with the aim of turning the exploitation and destruction of the environment into a non-harming cohabitation. They focus on technology with no foot print and even technology that contributes to the regeneration of the environment.
This discipline is a very relevant field nowadays, due to the alarming destructive side-effects of the industry explosion of the last two centuries. Environmental Technology has become vital to almost all fields of human activity, from industry and business to government policy. It is a very fast developing field with cutting-edge activity that requires knowledge, capability, creativity and devotion.
The Master of Environmental Science and Management is a coursework and research degree. The program involves advanced postgraduate training for graduates who have an appropriate first degree for a career in environmental science and management, environmental protection, consultancy, and industries such as mining and agriculture.
This masters programme combines the perspectives of two research groups - Energy Systems and Environmental Technology and Management - at the Department on Management and Engineering. These groups deal with system solutions and state-of-the-art research in areas such as: renewable energy, energy efficiency, waste management and recycling strategies, industrial ecology, corporate environmental management and eco-design.
The MSc specialisation in Wind Power System (WPS) focuses on the electrical aspects of wind power systems ensuring an excellent education in subjects such as generators, power electronics, control engineering and power system technology related to wind power applications.
The Graduate Certificate in Environmental Science is the first award level of an articulated program which gives qualified applicants the opportunity for study at progressive postgraduate levels in Environmental Science.
The purpose of the SEE Programme is to provide state-of-the-art education in the fields of solar energy, power generation, and energy utilization in the built environment by means of economically and environmentally sustainable systems and technologies.
Disaster Preparedness and Reconstruction requires planning, organising, and management resources to bring about the successful administration of a situation, post disaster.
The programme Sustainable Technology is based on the concept of Industrial Ecology with focus on the understanding of interactions between technical, economic, social and ecological systems and processes.
The master’s programme is based on the fundamentals imparted in the bachleor’s programme in Environmental Engineering. The duration of the studies is 4 semesters. The curriculum offers a wide range of elective courses from the areas of water, transport and geo-information.
Master of Environmental Science is a coursework program designed for students with a strong science-based Bachelor degree in the field of agriculture, ecosystem management, geographic information science, natural resources, mining, environmental consulting, environmental science and resource policy and management who wish to obtain specialist professional knowledge and skills.
MSc Bio-Economy and Natural Resources Management is designed to build capacity for development and meet the environmental challenges in Africa by equipping students with specialised knowledge in natural resources management skills. The programme prepares the students to face the challenges in the global natural resources management and related business.
