Course content

If you want to make a difference to better manage the challenges of climate change, or you want to regulate from government or government agencies, provide consultancy advice or you simply enjoy the natural environment and you want as much of it preserved as possible and you want to learn how to manage it effectively for future generations, Environmental Management offers an excellent range of advanced assessment theory and practise.

You learn how to manage the environment, land use and its challenges, and you learn the various pollutant testing skills and knowledge to help you determine how best remediate. Environment Managers are involved in assessing all types of land use which include onshore and offshore regulation, planning and development control, waterways management, soil management. They apply various analysis tools which are accepted as the professional standard equipment, often calibrated and effective in giving correct indications of pollution and scientific testing to remain compliant with legal obligations. Many further industries are growing as a result of society and its growing unease with pollution in smart technologies to crowd test, measure at specific public buildings and increase our awareness of pollution which has a negative impact on life.

There is often a conflict between land use and its protection. We now live in a world where air pollution is at record levels, population determines that we need clever ways to manage life and work, and land use planning is often at odds with natural flood prevention measures. The role of Environment Managers plays a critical role in determining our future generations and how they will live and interact with earth by ensuring the best possible outcomes in terms of regulation, negotiation and improvements to quality of life from the natural environment. In this programme you gain a wide range of core skills in environmental science, soil science and geography, pollution, GIS apps, catchment management, planning and Environmental Impact Assessment knowledge. This gives you several highly employable strengths from which to explore many options and continue your professional development in areas which interest you in many sectors.
