The environment is always in the news. New sources of energy, climate accords, companies that switch to sustainable practices, technological developments that enhance sustainability.
This Bachelor's programme will equip you to help redress the balance not just by deepening your knowledge of biology, chemistry and geography, but also by getting to grips with sustainability, habitats, energy, research, wildlife, health, water and current affairs. You will also become more people-centred. According to specialisation, you will focus on environmental quality, river sediments, sustainable energy, environmental engineering -and always on their interconnections.

Your studies and your career will be varied and absorbing. You will work inside and out, doing tests and research. Being innovative. And your work will always be important - to the future and the planet!

After graduation, the possibilities will be boundless. For the environment is all around us! You might work for the large environmental organisations, but there are plenty of other opportunities closer to home. You might advise the provincial authorities on environmental engineering or sustainable energy. But wherever you go, one thing is certain: you will be taking good care of the future!
