The Master of Environment and Management (MEM) program is a graduate degree of interdisciplinary study in either the Master of Arts (MA) or Master of Science (MSc) designed to enhance strategic decision making in the environmental field. Read more
The Master of Environment and Management (MEM) program is a graduate degree of interdisciplinary study in either the Master of Arts (MA) or Master of Science (MSc) designed to enhance strategic decision making in the environmental field. The program emphasizes teamwork and focuses on technical, policy, and system and sustainability issues to prepare students to become environmental professionals who are effective leaders and managers. This is a two year program made up of 3 three-week on-campus residencies (mandatory) combined with online learning.

Who It's For

Those from all levels of government, business, industry, consulting and non-governmental organizations who want to gain skills and credentials as leaders and managers to advance their current career or launch a new one. Students will pursue either a Master of Arts or Master of Science based on individual academic history and work experience.

Applicants who do not have the formal academic education to qualify for admission may be assessed on the basis of both their formal education and their informal learning, in accordance with the Flexible Admission Policy.

Outcomes

Graduates of this program will have developed leadership and management skills in the context of environmental sustainability and will be prepared to apply their learning and lead change in the workplace immediately. Graduates will be knowledgeable and effective professionals in the areas of communication, knowledge, leadership and teamwork, critical thinking and global awareness.

Graduates of the MA/MSc in Environment and Management will be able to:
-Assess the environmental, social, cultural, political, legal, and economic elements of sustaining and enhancing environmental health and ecosystem well-being
-Develop and evaluate goals, objectives and strategies, taking a range of perspectives into consideration
-Prepare, communicate and implement action plans
-Make decisions that require a broad understanding of scientific knowledge, policy and regulation, and leadership skills
-Solve problems effectively, both individually and as a team player
-Act as a leader who can meet the fundamental challenges of moving to a sustainable society
-Possess the skills to co-ordinate and integrate different perspectives that will help industry, government and the public make informed decisions that reduce pollution, conserve resources, and create a future which is productive, equitable and sustainable
-Possess a broad environmental vision and a sound understanding of environmental sciences and the dynamics of the public and private sectors

Delivery Model

The Master of Arts/Master of Science in Environment and Management program consists of ten courses (seven on campus and three distance online through Internet technologies) and completion of a graduate thesis.

Distance courses are delivered through the innovative use of web-based technologies. Participants will draw upon web resources as well as more traditional print media, while using online discussion groups and drop boxes to work towards the electronic submission of assignments.

Normally, students will take one distance course at a time, for a period of 10 - 12 weeks. Each distance course will require an average time commitment of 10 - 20 hours per week.

Students should expect to work hard during the residency period. The typical classroom schedule is Monday to Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Homework, readings, and team meetings are done outside of these hours. There will be some activities in the evenings, as well as during the typical workday. In addition to the educational activities there are planned recreational events.

In general, the student will have secured the necessary approvals to enter the program from their employer. In most cases the employer will, therefore, be the sponsor and will provide the student with the support and mentorship necessary to complete the program. In some cases, the sponsor may not be the employer of a student, but may be an organization interested in supporting the direction and receiving the results of the thesis.

There are many variations of the sponsor-student relationship, and this can be discussed with the Program Academic Lead to find a mutually-supported solution. The sponsor should be prepared to take "ownership" of the graduate's thesis project as a credible and defensible work which will clearly reflect the student’s own values, concepts and creativity, and which will have been subject to peer review.

The thesis topic should be of specific interest to the sponsor and in general, to qualify as suitable thesis project material, the topic must fall clearly into categories such as: a scientific study of a particular environmental issue or procedure; a detailed and scientifically-based case study of the environmental issues central to a particular area or resource industry; or, an evaluation of the social, political, economic, or legal implications of particular environmental policies, regulations, and practices.

Flexible Admission

Applicants who do not meet the Standard Admission requirements will be considered for Flexible Admission and assessed as follows:
-Normally, six years of relevant work experience, or an equivalent combination of education and experience
-All flexible admission applicants will normally be required to take "Academic Writing and Critical Thinking" and obtain a minimum final grade of B (73%)

Content

The increasing demand for raw materials, their price volatility, the production concentration and the market distortions imposed by some countries, confront Europe and other world regions with a number of challenges along the entire value chain. To tackle this supply risk challenge and to deal with environmental problems arising from too large emissions of waste (such as CO2), technological innovation is required with respect to exploration of new resources and sustainable primary mining, sustainable use of resources in specific products and production processes (e.g. substitution of critical metals in materials), prevention of waste generation, valorisation of secondary (alternative) resources and recovery/recycling of resources from end-of-life products.

The International Master of Science in Sustainable and Innovative Natural Resource Management (SINReM) aims at educating a new range of professionals with a holistic overview on resource management and up-to-date processing technologies, who are familiar with sustainability concepts and possess an innovative mind-set to boost the economic importance of this sector.

Students will be acquainted with the different (technological) options for optimizing flows of natural resources in the different parts of the chain, ranging from resource exploration over sustainable materials use and use of resources in production processes to recovery/recycling of resources from end-of-life products. The focus is on developing ground-breaking technologies, engineering and re-inventing the value chain to make it more sustainable. Students will get a broad view on the entire value chain in its different aspects.

Networking and exchange of knowledge and experience between different nationalities, between academic and non-academic partners and between scholars and students will be promoted.

SINReM is offered by a consortium consisting of 3 Institutes of Higher Education:

Universiteit Gent / Ghent University (UGent, Gent, Belgium);
Uppsala University (UU, Uppsala, Sweden);
TU Bergakademie Freiberg (TUFreiberg, Freiberg, Germany).

The SINReM programme is (co)financed by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology within the EIT Raw Materials programme and aims at achieving an EIT label. EIT-labelled educational programmes foster students to become more creative, innovative and entrepreneurs.

Career Perspectives

Graduates are qualified for a professional career in the private (supporting companies in making processes, products and services more sustainable), research (applied research at universities, research institutes or companies) or public sector (consulting in local, regional and (inter)national administrations, defining and implementing sustainable development policies).
Graduates have an entrepreneurial mindset, a multidisciplinary view and creative innovative problem-based technology development skills

Structure

This 2-year programme contains 120 ECTS credit units and leads to the joint diploma of International Master of Science in Sustainable and Innovative Natural Resource Management.

In order to expose all students to different institutional settings, student mobility within Europe is an integral part of the programme.

General Entrance Module - Semester I 30 ECTS - Ghent University
Advanced Module - Semester II 30 ECTS - Uppsala University
Field trip - Summer School - University of Freiburg
Advanced Module II - Semester III 60 ECTS - choose a one of the following majors containing (elective) courses in combination with master dissertation research:
geo-resource exploration (Uppsala)
sustainable processes (Freiberg)
sustainable materials and resource recovery (Ghent)

All students will be moving as a cohort to Gent, Freiberg and Uppsala in the first year, which approach has significant networking and social cohesion advantages.

During this first year, students are introduced to the value chain, management of natural resources, the circular economy, its economic, policy and legal aspects, inventory techniques, the clean technology concept and life cycle assessment tools to assess sustainability of products, services and processes. Moreover, students are exposed to a basic training in the different technological tools that can be used to intervene in different parts of the value chain (geo-resource exploration, sustainable (chemical) extraction processes, sustainable materials and resource recovery technology).

In the second year students have the option to further specialize by selecting a major and conducting thesis research. They interact with the professional sector through cooperation in thesis research, internships, lectures and seminars.

Admission Requirements

To be admitted, candidates must have at least a bachelor degree (minimum 180 ECTS credits) in engineering or science (physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, earth science, materials science) including 15 ECTS in mathematics and/or physics and 10 ECTS pure or applied chemistry or an equivalent level from a recognised university or Engineering College.

PROGRAM INFORMATION

Graduate Certificate Program Consumer Conflict Management, Negotiation, and Mediation

Workplace research indicates that managers and supervisors spend as much as forty percent of the workday resolving nonproductive conflict issues. Conflict that is poorly managed results in burdening costs for both the individual and the organization. Expanding worldwide development, the global economy, and population growth and associated social issues drive the intermingling of cultures and practices that increase the incidence of workplace conflict and destructive disagreement. Interest in and demand for conflict management has consequently risen.

The Graduate Certificate in Conflict Management, Negotiation, and Mediation provides students with the tools to manage, resolve, negotiate, and mediate conflict and to develop intrapersonal and interpersonal skills for living and earning. Conflict management training actively engages the student in self-exploration regarding issues of perception, bigotry, bias, values, beliefs, differences, and culture.

Programme Contents

The Master’s Programme in Agricultural Sciences comprises four study tracks:
Plant production sciences – plants as sources of food, feed, energy, beauty and wellbeing
During your studies, you will have the opportunity to apply biology to the breeding, cultivation, protection and production ecology of crop or horticultural plants. Producing sufficient food is one of the great challenges facing humanity. Plant production sciences have an important mission in finding solutions to this challenge. Plants are cultivated not only for food and feed, but also for bioenergy, green landscapes and ornamental purposes; plant production sciences seek new, improved solutions for all these purposes.

Animal science – animal health and wellbeing
During your studies, you will become familiar with issues pertaining to the wellbeing, nutrition and breeding of production and hobby animals as well as with the relevant biotechnology. In this study track you will apply biochemistry, animal physiology, genetics and molecular biology for the benefit of sustainable animal production. The Viikki Research Farm, in urban Helsinki, provides plenty of opportunities for hands-on learning!

Agrotechnology – technology with consideration for the environment
This study track provides you with the opportunity to study technologies that are key to agricultural production and the environment, from the basics to the latest innovations. Advances in technology and automation offer new horizons to fearless inventors interested in developing machinery and engineering for the reorganisation, implementation and adjustment of production in accordance with the needs of plants and animals.

Environmental soil science – dig below the surface
These studies allow you to literally dig beneath the surface. The soil is a central factor for the production of renewable natural resources, the diversity of nature, and the quality of water systems. As an expert in environmental soil science you will know how the soil serves as a substrate for plants and affects the quality of food, and how it can be improved.

Selection of the Major

The Master’s Programme in Agricultural Sciences comprises four study tracks, allowing you to focus on a specialisation according to your interests and previous studies: plant production sciences (quota of 40 students), animal science (quota of 25 students), agrotechnology (quota of 15 students), and environmental soil science (quota of 5 students).

You can be admitted to the Master’s Programme in Agricultural Sciences either directly from the relevant Bachelor’s programme or through a separate admissions process. A total of 80 students will be admitted through these two admissions channels.

Programme Structure

With a scope of 120 credits (ECTS), the Master’s programme can be completed in two academic years. The degree comprises:
-60 credits of advanced studies in the selected study track, including your Master’s thesis (30 credits)
-60 credits of other studies from the curriculum of your own or other degree programmes

The study tracks of the Master’s Programme in Agricultural Sciences collaborate across disciplinary boundaries to construct thematic modules around importance topical issues: the bioeconomy, the recycling of nutrients, food systems, and the production and exploitation of genomic information.

You must also complete a personal study plan (PSP). Your studies can also include career orientation and career planning.

Various teaching methods are used in the programme, including lectures, practical exercises, practical laboratory and field courses, practical training, seminars, project work and independent study.

Career Prospects

As a graduate of the Master’s Programme in Agricultural Sciences, you will have the competence to pursue a career or to continue your studies at the doctoral level.

-Prepare, communicate and implement action plans for environmental change

Who It’s For

Those from all levels of government, business, industry, consulting and non-governmental organizations who want to gain skills and credentials as leaders and managers to advance their current career or launch a new one. Students will pursue either a Master of Arts or Master of Science based on individual academic history and work experience.

Participants in the Master of Arts/Master of Science in Environment and Management (MEM) program come from as far north as Iqaluit in the Canadian Arctic, as far south as Peru and as far east as Indonesia and China. Most participants are employed in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors, and represent a broad cross-section of the environmental sector.

Delivery Model

The Master of Arts/Master of Science in Environment and Management program consists of ten courses (seven on campus and three distance online through Internet technologies) and completion of a graduate thesis.

Distance courses are delivered through the innovative use of web-based technologies. Participants will draw upon web resources as well as more traditional print media, while using online discussion groups and drop boxes to work towards the electronic submission of assignments.

Normally, students will take one distance course at a time, for a period of 10 - 12 weeks. Each distance course will require an average time commitment of 10 - 20 hours per week.

Students should expect to work hard during the residency period. The typical classroom schedule is Monday to Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Homework, readings, and team meetings are done outside of these hours. There will be some activities in the evenings, as well as during the typical workday. In addition to the educational activities there are planned recreational events.

In general, the student will have secured the necessary approvals to enter the program from their employer. In most cases the employer will, therefore, be the sponsor and will provide the student with the support and mentorship necessary to complete the program. In some cases, the sponsor may not be the employer of a student, but may be an organization interested in supporting the direction and receiving the results of the thesis.

There are many variations of the sponsor-student relationship, and this can be discussed with the Program Academic Lead to find a mutually-supported solution. The sponsor should be prepared to take "ownership" of the graduate's thesis project as a credible and defensible work which will clearly reflect the student’s own values, concepts and creativity, and which will have been subject to peer review.

The thesis topic should be of specific interest to the sponsor and in general, to qualify as suitable thesis project material, the topic must fall clearly into categories such as: a scientific study of a particular environmental issue or procedure; a detailed and scientifically-based case study of the environmental issues central to a particular area or resource industry; or, an evaluation of the social, political, economic, or legal implications of particular environmental policies, regulations, and practices.

Flexible Admission

Applicants who do not meet the Standard Admission requirements will be considered for Flexible Admission and assessed as follows:
-Normally, six years of relevant work experience, or an equivalent combination of education and experience.
-All flexible admission applicants will normally be required to take "Academic Writing and Critical Thinking" and obtain a minimum final grade of B (73%).
