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.
Graduates of the MSc/LLM in Environmental Policy and Governance will be well placed to pursue careers in the environmental sector, including government, regulatory authorities, international bodies, non-governmental organisations, business, pressure groups and charities.
The Master has been established at the Faculty of Science and Technology of the Free University of Bolzano in collaboration with the University of Innsbruck (Faculty of Biology and Faculty of Technical Sciences). The course has an international character and allows obtaining a "double degree".
The global environmental and energy challenge facing current and future generations of architects and building professionals calls for a deeper understanding of the principles of environmental design, and their effective application into architectural practice worldwide.
The distance learning programme Master Architecture and Environment is offered by the Hochschule Wismar - University of Applied Sciences: Technology, Business and Design.
This program applies recognised disaster management practices, providing graduates with the unique ability to work on approaches to building disaster resilience in context specific situations.
This programme is appropriate for you if you hold a first degree in a science, engineering or management discipline, and want to develop the skills and confidence to address the critical global challenges of energy and diminishing natural resources.
The aim of this programme is to provide a sound understanding of sustainable water resources issues by developing the knowledge and skills necessary for the planning and management of these resources to meet the needs of society and the environment within the context of climate change.
The main objective of the MSc Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Buildings programme is to provide students with high standards of knowledge in design, construction and maintenance of energy efficient buildings. The graduates will develop practical skills and acquire the fundamental knowledge for a further professional career in the field of civil engineering and energy efficiency.
The MBA Green Energy and Sustainable Businesses is designed to seek solutions that successfully address the triple bottom line: financial viability, ecological sustainability, and social equity.
The Master’s degree programmes concentrates above all on the development of methodological and personal competences. Students deepen their theoretical and scientific knowledge, and improve their social, professional and general competences
This postgraduate diploma course is part of the environmental management postgraduate programme and is designed to help you meet the challenges of environmental management in the context of sustainable development. Once you have obtained the postgraduate diploma, you can go on to study for the MSc in Environmental Management (F65).
