Environmental Management

Course Package Outline

Environmental Management is an essential part of Environmental Engineering which refers to the interaction between human society and the environment. To meet the challenges for a sustainable management of natural resources there is a need for cross-cutting professionals who are able to combine in-depth knowledge on local and global environmental impacts with expertise on strategies and tools that aim at reducing the total impact of human activities on nature and environment. This requires models and methods for collecting and analyzing environmental information, knowledge on the interdependencies between society and environmental problems, and tools and technologies for minimizing environmental impacts of human activities.

To prepare students for their professional career, the course package offers a sequence of technical courses and management courses as well as a number of courses on the interplay between the economic, social and environmental determinants that contribute to sustainable development.
