This is supplemented by management and policy subjects to empower the engineer, or technical specialist, to lead multidisciplinary teams working in the field of environmental engineering and management.
The course aims to develop an awareness and understanding of the human impact on the environment with respect to waste minimisation and water quality management, and the professional skills required to work as part of an integrated team responsible for environmental planning and management.
This course is of relevance to practising professionals in architecture, building, engineering science, health, law, planning and surveying. Career options include positions in government agencies or private corporations, or as consultants.
