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.
Transport is a major cause of environmental impact. Whether it is air pollution, noise, encroachment on the green belt or climate change, it is widely accepted that further expansion of transport must be balanced against the environmental damage. This programme takes a detailed look at this relationship, and equips students with practical approaches to environmentally sound transport planning. Students study the core principles of transport planning and then apply these to the environmental issues.
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 Master of Science in Engineering in Robotics (Robotics MSE) program at Johns Hopkins University is designed for students from a wide variety of engineering, scientific, and mathematical backgrounds to advance their interdisciplinary knowledge in robotics. Johns Hopkins University recognizes the growing need in industry for engineers with the broad multi-disciplinary training and fundamental knowledge needed to develop and deploy advanced robotics systems that function effectively in the real world.
Master of Science (Natural Resource Management) is a coursework program in natural resource management for those graduates wishing to extend their knowledge and expertise in the management of the interactions of humans and their environment. Natural resource management focuses on the way people and natural landscapes interact. It also deals with the sustainability of our environment.
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 distance learning programme Master Architecture and Environment is offered by the Hochschule Wismar - University of Applied Sciences: Technology, Business and Design.
The interdepartmental Master of Science in Transportation (M.S.T.) degree program emphasizes the complexity of transportation and its dependence on the interaction of technology, operations, planning, management and policy-making. For this reason, the Master of Science in Transportation program is interdepartmental. Faculty members and research staff from several centers, departments and divisions within MIT are affiliated with the program and serve as research advisors and mentors to Master of Science in Transportation students.
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.
Chicago Harris and the Division of the Physical Sciences jointly offer the Master of Science degree in Environmental Science and Policy. The broad objective of the program is to provide students with the academic background in both policy and environmental science required for informed decision making in business and government. To a large extent, the curriculum of this program draws upon courses already in place at Chicago Harris and in the Division of the Physical Sciences, although an introductory overview course and an independent study are designed to integrate the policy and science aspects of the program.
