Programme Description

The programme is a 3 year sciences based programme with a combination of practical and theoretical course components making it highly relevant to the needs of Uganda and  Africa’s  various  industries.  It  is  designed  to  train  students  to orientate  their perception of environmental challenges in order to appreciate the key role of sciences, economics, ethics, politics, and sociology in environmental conservation and management. The programme provides students with a firm science foundation, and training and mentorship in application of scientific principles to identify, define problems and design tools for data collection, analyse, interpret and generate information that can offer solutions to environmental challenges. In doing so, a new cadre of environmental professionals will emerge to confront the current environmental challenges at local and international levels.
