Environmental management involves managing both the environment itself (i.e. water, trees, soil and animals) and the interaction between people and the environment (through production processes, consumption practices and policies). The ultimate goal of this management is to achieve a sustainable supply of ecosystem services over the long term that best meet our environmental, social and economic needs. To meet this environmental management goal, we require fundamental knowledge of environmental and human systems, as well as an in-depth understanding of the sensitivity and dependency of one on the other. In addition, we require an ability to analyze the environmental risks and impacts of human activities, as well as develop and implement strategies that meet our competing and often-conflicting objectives. Our Environmental Management program will help you understand environmental and human systems (and their interactions) through courses in ecology, hydrology, climatology, soil chemistry, biodiversity, sociology, economics, policy and others. It will also prepare you to understand environmental risks and impacts of human activities by equipping you with environmental management tools such as environmental indicator identification and measurement, environmental risk assessment, environmental impact assessment, lifecycle assessment, environmental planning and stakeholder engagement. These tools are supported with state-of-the-art environmental monitoring technologies, GIS/GPS technology, statistical analysis and others to ensure you have the expertise to excel in your career as an environmental professional in environmental management. Student will be taught to integrate classroom knowledge with critical thinking and structured problem solving to help students design management plans that meet social, environmental and economic objectives. Students will learn both indoors and outdoors in our classrooms and laboratories. You will also undertake projects involving research, planning, and implementation for real-world clients
