Course Description

Course Profile

General description:

The Restoration and management of environment (RME) aims at providing students with comprehensive and interdisciplinary environmental knowledge presented by the best specialists from a range of scientific areas. Studies are focused on both technical and ecological aspects of the environment, emphasizing the role of human in shaping sustainable landscapes and ecosystems.The programme is divided into three semesters. It consists of lectures, seminars, labworks and field research.

The detailed list of subjects is as follows:

First year: Mathematics and statistics, Food in Culture and Society, Tourism in protected areas, Ecotoxicology, Landscape planning by ecological methods, Hydrogenic soils, Plant adaptation to environmental stresses, Integrated water resources management and restoration, Elective (Contemporary challenges in wetlands restoration or Integrated floodplain protection) or Foreign language, Environmental policy, Ecological bases of nature conservation, Processes of decision support, ,Spatial planning, Risk analysis, Soil biology, Ecological infrastructure in agricultural landscapes, Restoration to ecosystems of wild medicinal plants, Land and water conservation, Ecological engineering for environmental protection, Soil hazard pollution and protection, Hydrological modeling with GIS Case study of environmental protection – part I,

Second Year: Environmental processes modeling, Faunal research or River Ecological Surveys, Case study of environmental protection – part II, Diploma seminar, M.Sc. dissertation.

Graduates are able to:

RME has been established to provide its students with (1) understanding biological processes and Interactions between living organisms, living organisms and their environments and human activities, (2) skills to identify and assess environmental hazards (3) knowledge on legal aspects and management rules of environmental protection, and (4) a range of tools for future specialists who could cope with the challenge of managing good quality environment and to restore various ecosystems across scales

Career prospects:

Careers in environmental protection involve jobs that aim in reduction of negative human pressure on natural environment, restoration of degraded ecosystems, sustainable use of environmental resources, environmental education and creating environmental policy.

Graduates will be ready to work in the fields of (1) environmental planning and analysis, (2) environmental policy, legislation, and regulation, (3) natural resources conservation and management, (4) environmental engineering and (5) environmental education, communication and advocacy and fundraising. Possible jobs include governmental positions, coordination of environmental agencies and NGOs, environmental consulting, technologist in industry, environmental engineering, research and teaching positions in schools and universities.General description:
