Strong prospects for careers in Environmental ManagementTU Dublin

Opportunities for careers in Environmental Management are expanding as environmental issues and sustainable development become widely recognised as the defining challenges of our time.  The EU Green Deal sets out an ambitious plan — to achieve climate neutrality in Europe by 2050 and to address environmental degradation — which will drive demand for skills in diverse environmental areas.

 

Graduates of the BSc in Environmental Management are well-placed to make important contributions in a wide range of environment-related areas, such as protecting our water, air and soil quality; addressing biodiversity loss and managing natural habitats; tackling issues of waste; and carrying out environmental assessments.

 

Through this combined programme (TU835), students develop an understanding of the natural world, as well as the social and economic dimensions of environmental issues, through lectures, project work, field trips, seminars and case studies.  Modules cover topics such as Climate Change, Habitats and Biodiversity, River Basins, Field Ecology, Rural and Coastal Management, Waste Management and Environmental Assessment.

 

We are challenged now as never before with finding ways to live sustainably — locally and globally.  This broad field of study offers numerous and varied career opportunities in state agencies, local authorities, private businesses, NGOs and international organisations.

Studying woodland flora at Deer Park, Howth, Co. Dublin, April 2021. Spring is an especially interesting time to visit woodlands. Small plants adapted to life on the woodland floor must flower and produce seed early in the year before the leaves open in the canopy above and shade out the sunlight.

Visiting Lullymore Bog, Co. Kildare, one of the few relatively intact raised bogs remaining in the midlands of Ireland. It was partially drained for peat extraction, but later acquired by the Irish Peatland Conservation Council, who blocked the drains to restore the water table. Healthy bogs are a net sink for carbon, trapping it from the atmosphere and storing it in peat. They are also of high nature conservation value, providing habitats for specialised plants such as Sphagnum moss, and providing breeding grounds for threatened bird species such as the Curlew.
