The discipline of Environmental System Analysis researches interaction and sets out to understand, describe patterns and behaviour models of different interacting entities that affect the environment and to design and optimise solutions for the issues identified in the environment.
A student of this discipline will study methods and means used to identify, asses, address and solve issues of the environment ranging from climate change and pollution to social, behavioural and policy problems.
The application of this science investigates systems and identifies the components as well as their functioning manner and scope. As a professional you can expect to adapt, modify, expand, improve or create new systems that address and solve the issues that humans are confronted with in their environment.
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 two-year Masters in Development Practice encompasses an integrated theoretical and practical approach with multidisciplinary training in four “pillars”- health, natural, social, and management sciences. Eighteen core academic modules (link) provide rigorous training across the core pillars, complemented by masters level training in research design, methodology, and methods including training in leading edge quantitative, qualitative, and digital tools and techniques.
This European Master's responds to the increasing need to better understand and anticipate the various and often complex socio-economic and environmental effects of these policies, either in a functioning market economy as in the European Union or in economies in a development or transition phase.
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 Master Programme in Sustainable Development is truly interdisciplinary with students and tutors from many different subject areas. However, all share an interest in sustainable development. The objective of the programme is that you will be fully versed in issues that concern sustainable development from most perspectives – from the basic economic to the extremely concrete aspects, such as how sufficient drinking water can be made available to everyone on our planet.
This program is one of a suite of programs offered through the Canadian Centre for Environmental Education (CCEE) which is a result of a partnership between Royal Roads University and the Environmental Careers Organization of Canada (ECO Canada).
Global population, economic growth and on-going environmental deterioration put increasing pressure on the existing natural systems. Their ability to provide renewable resources such as food, water and energy is at risk and waning. This calls for specialists and leadership in order to develop and employ managerial, economical, governance, and technical solutions.
The role of the corporate environmental manager is becoming increasingly complex and strategic. Corporate social and environmental responsibility is becoming prominent in consumer demand and a pre-requisite for tender eligibility. This necessitates a more sophisticated environmental manager who can interpret legislative and audit requirements and deliver them in a manner conducive to continued economic development, whilst recognising the market trends.
You will obtain a joint international Masters Degree from both UCD and JLU Giessen, Germany having spent at least one semester in each institution. Global change is occurring in complex socio-ecological systems. Understanding the intricate, medium- to long-term changes in our land, air and water requires advanced knowledge in measurement, modelling and prediction. Responding to these changes requires effective communication of the science in order to underpin innovative policies. This Joint International MSc course of the University College Dublin and Justus Liebig University Giessen is the response to these challenges and will suit skilled motivated science graduates wishing to develop a scientific career in ecosystem research as well as those aiming to contribute to evidence-based environmental policy.
Students enrolled in the Master`s discipline Northern populations and ecosystems will acquire initial training in both basic and/or applied ecosystem research that could be continued in PhD projects, as well as competence on monitoring and management of ecosystems.
