The Environmental Science program prepares students to be operational professionals even before graduating, thanks to the combined theoretical and practical approach. The teaching methods provide students from various backgrounds and cultures with the operational and managerial skills required in the corporate world. Students learn through Project Based Learning approach, with group work and case studies, field visits where students can see first-hand the jobs they might choose for their future, and industrial projects over the two years of the program.
