Centre for Environmental Management

Centre for Environmental Management Home Page

 

 Through an integrated approach, we produce leaders with holistic answers to environmental management

 

The environmental manager of today is required to possess skills and knowledge relating to a variety of fields – from engineering, town and regional planning and mining, to conservation, tourism, natural resource management, social development and governance. Environmental managers are expected to cross social, environmental and technological boundaries to address a range of matters relating to sustainable resource management.

The Centre for Environmental Management uses an integrated approach to develop the competencies of environmental leaders. We provide education and training, conduct applied research and offer expert services that are intricately linked and draw on each other to promote best practices in environmental management.

We present the following degree courses: 

    Bachelor of Honours in Limnology
    Postgraduate Diploma in Integrated Water Management (from 2017)
    Master of Environmental Management
    PhD in Environmental Management

We also present short courses on a variety of topics and 
conduct research for academic and contract purposes. The African Water Symposium and Orange River Basin Symposium are also hosted by the Centre for Environmental Management.

The Centre’s work is concentrated mainly on corporate environmental management, and we have a flexible approach to course content. We continuously adapt course topics and content to meet the need for information about new developments in environmental management, and for requirements related to professional development by practitioners.

The Centre’s graduates are ideally situated to become leaders in the field of environmental management in the public or private sector. Our approach impresses upon students the interdisciplinary nature of the field of study, and the course guides them to mastery of the scientific process.
