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 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.
This degree provides the student with curriculum and research opportunities in one of the world’s most significant science and policy issues: the environment. Students will study ecosystems management, the impact of industrialization on the environment, economics and resource availability, regulation and law, environmental ethics, landscape-level conservation, political ecology, and environmental technology and management.
A Certificate in Environmental Planning and Design will prepare students to develop a strategy to implement sustainable design practices at the landscape scale. An overview of planning tools, including the use of Geographic Information Systems, environmental impact analyses, and the principles of sustainable design will be integrated in this program.
The UC San Diego Master's Degree in Marine Biodiversity and Conservation equips professionals with the knowledge they need to improve conservation of marine biodiversity in the world's most diverse and threatened eco-regions. It is focused on development of local capacity and science-based management tools. This is a unique graduate program of study providing cutting-edge knowledge of marine biodiversity and fresh conservation perspectives designed to teach current and future professionals about marine ecosystems from the scientific, economic and policy perspectives, as well as provide important cultural and communications skills.
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.
The Environmental Risk Assessment Certificate provides a solid foundation in the characterization of source areas, linking fate and transport mechanisms, and evaluating exposure pathways to assess environmental risk.
A practitioner degree that addresses the advanced educational needs of working life science professionals. There are no prescribed areas of study within the Masters of Applied Sciences, therefore you're able to individualize your particular curriculum program to best meet your own career objectives.
The Environmental Engineering degree program is designed for recent engineering graduates and for practicing, mid-career engineers seeking professional advancement.
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 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.
A graduate with specialization in biotechnology in environment protection possesses theoretical and practical knowledge concerning techniques of selection and targeted modification of microorganisms and cells of higher organisms used in environment protection.
