This program builds proficiency and adds depth of knowledge in environmental sciences and environmental modelling. Students complete a phase 1 environmental site assessment (ESA) and learn how to prepare a phase 2 ESA, including proposal, costing and report preparation. Graduates acquire expertise in a range of disciplines, including - but not limited to - GIS, ecological conservation, project management, environmental policy and reporting, and contaminant control.
