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 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 distance learning programme Master Architecture and Environment is offered by the Hochschule Wismar - University of Applied Sciences: Technology, Business and Design.
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 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 MSc in Sustainable Energy Engineering is intended for students with a background in engineering or physical sciences, who want to take a more technical perspective on developing and engineering sustainable energy systems.
Disaster Preparedness and Reconstruction requires planning, organising, and management resources to bring about the successful administration of a situation, post disaster.
The Technology and Safety in the High North programme focus on the technical and safety related challenges associated with industrial activities in the High North. Special attention is given to maritime and offshore operations in the harsh and vulnerable Arctic environment. The students are introduced to methods and tools for managing advanced, complex and integrated technical systems with respect to operation and maintenance, reliability and production assurance, health, safety & environmental risk as well as emergency preparedness.
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. The information on this page is provisional and subject to change.
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 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.
