Environmental Management - Integrated Water Managment - UFS

We produce leaders with holistic answers to environmental and water problems by using an integrated approach 

The Centre for Environmental Management uses an integrated approach to develop the competencies of postgraduate students from all over Africa. 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 and water management.

We present the following postgraduate programmes:

Integrated Water Management

Environmental Management

We also present short courses on a number of topics and conduct research for academic and contract purposes.

The centre’s work concentrates mainly on corporate environmental and water management, and we have a flexible approach to course content. We continuously adapt course topics and content to meet the demand of public and private sectors. Our approach impresses upon students the interdisciplinary nature of these fields of study, and the course guides them to mastery of the scientific process.
