Environmental Science and Technology program will introduce you to research and developments leading to technologies that address environmental problems. You will learn to interact with stakeholders, managers and policy makers for appropriate remedial actions.
The unsustainable management of natural resources hampers human development and exacerbates inequalities in wealth and welfare. Pollution, the depletion of natural resources and the disintegration of ecological functions are matters of local, regional and global concern. Economic development and rising living standards in the developing world contribute to the urgency of these important issues. It is not surprising, therefore, that the management of our precious water resources, environmental conservation, sustainable development and the alleviation of poverty are high on the agenda of global concerns.
It is now widely acknowledged that, to prevent the continued degradation of the environment and consequent damage to human society, interactions between man and the environment have to be sustainable. Sustainability depends on a delicate balance between use and conservation of our environmental resources. The challenge to sustainable development is to stimulate further expansion of living standards worldwide, while minimizing and counteracting the negative impacts on the environment. To find sustainable solutions and improve the quality of human life, we must first understand the processes that sustain natural systems, how these systems function and how they interact with one other and with human society.
Environmental Science and Technology is intended for mid-career professionals with an interest in environmental sciences and in maintaining environmental integrity in relation to human development.
