This program prepares you to manage environmental projects, and provides a broad understanding of disciplines relevant to environmental science, with the opportunity to study specific areas in-depth.
The knowledge and skills you gain will be incorporated into an industry relevant research project.
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.
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
The main modes of delivery will be through lectures, online delivery, tutorials and some laboratory work.
You will be expected to contribute to tutorial discussions as professionals. There will be some field work in intensive mode.
A number of industry partners will participate in the delivery of classroom activities and provide opportunities for research projects. Their classroom activities will include the development of project proposals, working with clients and risk management.
Opportunities for projects will come from industries such as landfill operations, water and catchment management, and contaminated land management. There will also be opportunities to work with government agencies such as the EPA, CSIRO, Department of Sustainability and Environment, and Department of Primary Industries.
Employment opportunities for graduates from a range of disciplines will be significantly enhanced by the addition of a postgraduate qualification in environmental science and technology. There is a shortage of qualified environmental science professionals to provide high-level advice to Australian workplaces, which is reflected in a recent and broad remuneration survey of environmental positions in Australia (SafeSearch HSE 2011–2012 Remuneration Survey). This program is designed to give you a competitive edge.
