Distance learning course Applied Environmental Science

Universität Koblenz – Landau

The participants of the postgraduate distance learning course “applied environmental sciences” are to be enabled to identify and evaluate anthropogenic interventions and their impact on the biosphere and hence on human beings by means of scientific methods and to put the knowledge acquired into goal-directed action.

The first stage of the studies is dedicated to providing the students with background knowledge. Another focus is on economic circumstances as well as legal and planning instruments developed in the recent decades that are permanently being further developed to protect or use the environment in such a way as to prevent damages or minimize their impacts.

The specialisation course mainly deals with technological applications of practical environmental protection, i.e. in the fields of circular economy and waste management, air pollution control, water resources management and water pollution control and the remediation of environmental damage (contaminated sites).
