Programme Overview

The programme is designed to equip graduates with theoretical and practical skills in environmental issues and an understanding to deal effectively yet sensitively with complex environmental, and social problems arising at the local, national and global levels. The programme emphasizes scientific facts, social and economic values and ethics that are essential in determining an appropriate course of environmental action.

Expected Learning Outcomes
At the end of the programme the candidate should be able to:
– Advise, plan and implement environmentally friendly development activities/programmes.
– Carry out environmental impact assessment of human activities such as mining, livestock and agriculture, irrigation, manufacturing industry, human settlements fishing, wildlife and forestry.
– Assess levels of pollutants in air, water, soils, plants and animal tissues.
– Plan and design waste treatment and disposal systems in human settlements, irrigation projects, mining, industrial, terrestrial and aquatic environments.
– Plan and design pollution control technologies and systems for atmospheric, terrestrial and aquatic environments
– Assess degradation of the physical environment, its impact and plan and implement restoration measures such as soil conservation, afforestation, and other land reclamation measures.
– Record, analyse and diagnose metrological data and predict weather conditions.
– Design collect and analyse micro-climatic and bio-metrological information under experimental production scale and natural conditions.
– Develop skills for self-employment in environmental management, protection and advocacy.
