The M.Sc. degree programme is intended for students with degrees in Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Earth and Environmental Sciences, Mathematics and Engineering.
This European programme is characterised by a balanced, hands-on interdisciplinary sequence of lectures and seminars as well as experimental and computing aspects which focus upon marine environmental and living/non-living marine resources. Such an approach will provide qualitative and quantitative methods of handling marine environmental problems, as well as problems related to the management of its resources. It offers intensive training in a modern practically-oriented interdisciplinary approach. Laboratory experiments, coastal surveys, case studies, field trips and visits to leading research institutes will be undertaken. Decision-support systems and several other modern methods relevant to the planning and management of resources and marine environmental problems are included in the course.
Much attention is paid to the theoretical aspects of physical processes in coastal areas whose understanding is linked to the field observation of the processes at sea. Management issues will be treated thoroughly to provide the student with an interdisciplinary view of marine resources problems. Research and teaching infrastructures of the institutions which are part of the Consortium offer Master students opportunities to gain a comprehensive education and first-hand state-of-the-art experience, in solving problems related to environmental and resource management issues.
Master Courses are taught at the new Marine Research Station located in Plentzia (Basque Country, Spain).
After obtaining the Master degree, the possibility exits to continue doctoral studies in the same area.
