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 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.
The MSc Climate Studies is targeted to students who wish to focus on the scientific insights in facing climate change and on social economic implications of climate change.
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 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.
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 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.
The Aberystwyth MSc in Remote Sensing and Planetary Science is designed to provide you with a range of key skills and expertise required to understand, analyse and interpret remote sensing and other spatial datasets, and to apply them on a solar system-wide stage. Previous graduates have since contributed to the BEAGLE Mars exploration projects. n this highly interdisciplinary Remote Sensing and Planetary Science Masters course, you will be exposed to the cutting edge of understanding from a range of subject areas, taught by world-class experts.
The Laboratory of Hydrology and Aquatic Systems Analysis of the University of Thessaly (Department of Civil Engineering) and the Laboratoire d´ Etude des Transferts en Hydrologie et Environement of Observatoire des Sciences de l´Univers de Grenoble (OSUG) of Université Joseph Fourier - Grenoble I, jointly undertook the direction, co-ordination and organisation of a Greek-French program of postgraduate studies.
Program aims at knowledge and capabilities for solving natural, economic and social problems of sustainability. Methods of analysis of natural scientific and social correlations as well as of developing and realising measures, which aim at sustainable land use, are taught.
This is a flexible distance learning course designed to meet the needs of practitioners within the environmental sector who wish to achieve a professional and academic qualification. You will study specially written distance learning materials supported by Tutors with real world practical experience. The course commences three times a year.
Environmental Monitoring, Modelling and Management enables you to gain a deeper understanding of environmental processes and techniques for managing environmental change. Study how to assess the causes and manage the consequences of environmental, climatic and land use change. Students choose to take either a research or a consultancy stream.
There is an urgent need for scholars who are trained in interdisciplinary and integrative approaches towards sustainable development, enabling them to assess and deal with the complexity involved from a system’s perspective. Furthermore, there is a need for professionals that are able to cross ‘boundaries’ between different disciplines and domains, and that can operate at the interface of science, policy and society. The new Master of Science in Sustainability Science and Policy (MSc SSP) provides an intensive programme where students will acquire knowledge and skills (competences) to deal with one of the world’s most relevant and complex questions: how can we balance ecological, economic, and social developments for our present and future well-being?
