The programme is designed to give a deeper understanding of the inter-relationships between the environment and topics such as energy technology, environmental law, business strategies, policy and other areas.
It focuses on environmental auditing, assessment and management procedures, as required by industrial and commercial bodies. Thus the programme emphasises the application of environmental knowledge, but pressures on the wider global environment are also studied. Furthermore, in order that students can better understand these applications, the basic principles of the various disciplines are also covered. The programme has a standard modular structure and a wide variety of teaching and assessment procedures are used.
