About

The increasing number of environmental issues needs suitably qualified people to help resolve them. Solving these problems requires professionals who can provide ethical, high-level specialist advice to industry, governments and communities. The environmental industry now requires graduates who:

  • are knowledgeable about the science underpinning the data pointing to environmental changes
  • can interpret the data being produced
  • keep abreast of the current and emerging technologies being used to prevent or mitigate environmental problems
  • are capable of designing and conducting research projects
  • can communicate well with a wide range of audiences
  • can function at a high level of autonomy

This program has been designed to provide you with these skills, giving you a competitive edge when seeking employment as an environmental professional. You will have a capstone experience which pulls all these requirements together.

As a future manager in environmental science, you'll be expected to design and manage projects in an ethical fashion and be able to communicate with a wide range of audiences.

Development of these attributes will be an integral part of your progression through the program.
