Geography & Meteorology Introduction The global Environment Question came into Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT) as a technological issue with the creation of the faculty of Environmental Sciences in 1985. In 1991 the faculty set up an Environmental Management programme for the principal aim of developing and training specialist Environmental Managers and monitoring the environment. After the 1992 summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the programme progressed beyond the common, 'what of the Environment' to ask how, where, when, why and eventually the bigger WHAT of the environment questions, which are more pertinent to environmental management and survival. It is known that food production and water resource development, industrialization and urbanization are essential elements of human existence, which have profound impacts on our environment. In the interest of Environmental sustainability, we now design our specific objectives at the post-graduate levels to address six main questions, viz: How do we control and manage our environmental pollution and degradation? How do we respond to climate change problems? How do we farm and how do we industrialize and or Urbanize in environment friendly ways? Where do we urbanize? How do we manage our land, air and water resources? How do we manage man-environmental hazard relationships? To answer these questions, the crucial issue of the assessment of the environment comes into play. Thus we ask: How do we develop our environmental resources? What are the positive and negative impacts of resources development on the environment? How do the economist, sociologist, psychologist, physical scientist and the ecologist etc perceive our actions? How do we reduce environmental pollution, climate change, flooding and environmental degradation to achieve environmental sustainability? What do we do to substitute 'poverty' with general affluence through appropriate environmental management practices? These questions which are very crucial to Nigerians today for tomorrow constitute the foci of our researches. The researches are not only evaluative but also descriptive, designative, predictive and prescriptive regarding the above crucial environmental questions. We therefore adopt international outlook and approach. Environmental issues such as water and atmospheric pollution and climate change problems involve trans-national boundaries. The Department of Geography and meteorology provides the necessary undergraduate base for these advanced questions. Philosophy The fundamental philosophy underlying the programme is the training of graduates from a wide range of discipline and backgrounds to the highest academic standards in the identification and resolution of environmental issues. Vision The programme will produce skilled manpower, trained specifically for environmental surveillance, monitoring and management as against the present practices where these tasks were performed by people trained in basic and applied sciences. The academic programme is also designed to provide the training needed for an understanding of environment and build upon this foundation by exploring in some depths, specific aspects such as resources depletion, recycling, re-use and the impact of science and technology Aims and Objectives Postgraduate programmes in environmental Management and control are designed to : Increase the students understanding of the multi-disciplinary nature of environmental issues. Provide sound specialized and effective practical oriented training of course work fieldwork and research in environmental monitoring, management and control. Provide high-level skilled manpower with both academic and professional competence for tackling environmental issues in all their ramifications. Programmes The postgraduate programmes ESUT has in environmental management and control are as follows: PGD Environmental Management and Control (PGD EMC) Master of Environmental Management and Control (Master of EMC)(Professional) M.Sc Environmental Management and Control (M.Sc)(Academic) Ph.D Environmental Management and Control (Ph.d. EMC) General Regulations Post Graduate Diploma (PGD) in Environmental Management and Control (PGD EMC) The programme will consist of course work, field trip, practical, examination and short project (long essay) Admission Requirements The criteria for admission into the PGD programmes are as follows; Matriculation requirement of individual university including mathematics and English Language.

Quantity Surveying Introduction The Department of Quantity Surveying, Faculty of environmental Sciences of Enugu State University of Science and Technology, Enugu, offers the following Postgraduates (PGD, M. Sc, Ph.D), Programmes in Quantity Surveying with specialization M. Sc and Ph.D in: Project management Construction management The programmes are board-based, designed for technocrats, business executives, academicians, practitioners and person who wish to develop other project, and cost management knowledge, practice, skills and research capabilities in the context of business, commerce and industry. Philosophy The programmes are rooted in the belief that the built environment industry mirrors the national economy. Economics that still have large mass of housing and infrastructure to provide and/or maintain for critical masses of their people have to put the industry in a front burner. The provision of high quality work force power to meet the challenges of a developing economy is indispensable. These challenges include requirements and research endeavours to promote the built environment industry and general development of the society. The programmes are therefore geared towards producing high quality manpower that will not only be self employing but employ others and could be of consultancy status in the fields of study. General Aim/Objectives The main aim of the programme is to enhance the student's marketability and self-reliance; equip them professionally, and academically by imparting sound knowledge, theory and practice of the arts and science of the application of project, construction and cost management and technological skills, techniques, knowledge, tools and processes to projects and operations. The graduates will be well grounded in the theory and practice of project, construction, or cost management and technology; be able to teach subjects in their area of specialization and also, advance the frontiers of the bodies of knowledge through scholarly research. Specifically, all graduates should be able to: Define, understand and handle complex construction and related problems, Develop and demonstrate leadership and team skills, Contribute to strategic decisions of their organizations Show competence and mastery in the- use of IT tools including project facilities, construction or cost management software.

Urban & Regional Planning Introduction Rapid population growth and the associated rapid rates of city growth coupled with technological changes have generated an increasing demand for planners on all aspects of human endeavours particularly in urban and rural areas of developing countries. The frightening rate of rural-urban migration and the concomitant physical, social, economic and cultural problems resulting from, or precipitated in urban areas calls for urgent need of planners with requisite academic, professional and technical skills and capacities to deal with such situations. On the other hand, the rural areas of Nigeria suffer from declining youth population, skilled manpower, finance, modernization of decaying agricultural production infrastructure and the much needed social amenities to cater for needs of over 70% of the country's population. These scenarios call for concerted efforts on part of government and universities to initiate new programmes as well as, redesign existing ones to meet the ever changing needs and challenges of sustainable national, physical and socio-economic development. The role of planners in this regard cannot be over-emphasized. Nigeria is in direct need of planners to help manage urban and rural spaces or areas. At the moment, competent academically and professionally trained planners are indeed only produced in very few Nigerian universities. The shortage of professional planners must be stemmed if chaos is to be mitigated in urban and rural spaces. This is why the department of Urban and Regional Planning Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT) has seized the challenge given by the National Universities Commission (NUC) to reform its postgraduate programs to achieve demands for national development and international best practices. Graduate Diploma and Degrees The postgraduate programmes in the Department of Urban and Regional Planning are designed to meet the needs of both full-time and part-time students intending to become effectively involved in socio-economic and physical development planning profession in an ever dynamic environment such as Nigeria. Urban and Regional Planning is eclectic in scope and this is why the programmes are made sufficiently broad-based and flexible to bestride complementary environmental design and planning disciplines. This ensures that whilst meeting the general requirements of the Nigerian Institute of Town Planners (NITP) and the Town Planners Registration Council (TOPREC) on one hand and National Universities Commission (NUC) on the other, the programmes incorporate much of the social science-oriented urban and regional planning theory and methodology that normally lie beyond the scope of a town planning programme(s). To ensure their relevance and sustainability, experienced and competent planning experts, particularly urban and regional planners, both on full-time and part-time employment are made to man these programmes. These programmes are designed with a view to giving due weight to theory and practice through lectures, seminars, computer applications, studio demonstrations and field investigations. It is recognized that while enough premium should be placed on the practical aspects of the learning process, a rigorous theoretical foundation is very desirable for both studio and fieldwork. Philosophy the philosophy of the Postgraduate Urban and Regional Planning Programmes in ESUT, is built on intellectual leadership and the preparedness to confront spatial and environmental challenges. Hence each programme focuses on details providing practical training geared towards the effective planning and development of Nigeria cities, towns, villages and their surrounding regions in order to achieve national objectives in planning and development. Goals and Objectives The goal of the programmes is to produce planners registerable with NITP/TOPREC who are both academicians and core professionals. Against this background, the graduate degree programmes are designed with the goal of increasing the ability of students/participants to prepare regional, urban, town and village development plans by studying current practices and providing techniques for: Analysing and understanding how regions, cities, towns, and villages work and are likely to develop; Assessing the resources and constraints to effective planning and development; and Strengthening institutional capacities for the implementation of regional, urban, town and village development plans. Against this background, the following objectives predominate: To develop students' understanding of URP through the study of theories, methods and techniques for planning, designing and managing land use activities and environment; To assist the students to acquire constructive understanding of the social, economic, technological and legislative framework of society with the physical, social and economic processes in operation and, the potential capacities of the frameworks to make more coherent and relevant collaborative policy formulation and implementation; To provide students with varied practical experience of realistic planning problems; To encourage students to develop interest in planning skills and research methods; To contribute to the manpower requirements of the nation by educating and training of prospective planners and also offering of refresher courses to already registered planners through in-house/programme seminars, workshops and colloquium; and finally. To provide training and re-training programmes that will elevate sub-professionals to professional cadre of the discipline.

The Mediterranean branch of the Master in Advanced European and International Studies (MAEIS) is targeted at students who have completed their undergraduate studies. Its objective is to give students an overarching, encompassing vision of the political, social, economic, and cultural challenges of today’s world. [+]

The Mediterranean branch of the Master in Advanced European and International Studies (MAEIS) is targeted at students who have completed their undergraduate studies. Its objective is to give students an overarching, encompassing vision of the political, social, economic, and cultural challenges of today’s world. The Master’s programme follows an original approach which distinguishes it from other Master’s courses in Euro­Mediterranean Studies and International Relations: The MAEIS is an international, interdisciplinary and itinerant programme which aims to educate the next generation of Euro­Mediterranean decision­makers. Following the slogan “Learning and living the Mediterranean”, the participants rotate each trimester, moving their place of studies from Nice to Tunis and then to Istanbul. The MAEIS is a one ­year ­programme, subdivided into three terms. Degree and recognition Students who successfully complete the programme are awarded two certifications at the end of the academic year: Master in Advanced European and International Studies: This is the diploma of CIFE, certifying the successful completion of the academic curriculum and granting 60 ECTS credits at Master level. The degree qualification Chargé de Mission en Organisations Européennes et Internationales (Policy Officer in European and International Organisations): This qualification is recognised by the French state as a degree at Master level (level 7 of the European Qualifications Framework EQF). Admission requirements This graduate programme is aimed at students who have already completed a first degree (minimum three years of study at university level). Furthermore, students must have an active knowledge of English and French. You can find more detailed information on the application procedure and apply online at www.ie-ei.eu. Deadline for applications: 15 June of the current year Teaching modules Conflict Management and Peace Making The Mediterranean is a case study par excellence for Peace and Conflict Studies. In the last two decades Mediterranean societies have been significantly affected by inter­group violence and inter­state conflicts: from the Western Balkans to Cyprus, from Israel to Palestine, from Libya to Syria. Sustainable Development and Globalisation The 21st century and especially the Mediterranean face unprecedented economic, environmental and social challenges, as the globalised economic development exerts increased pressure on limited resources, deteriorates the environment and creates growing inequalities. Regional Integration and Transformation The EU has become a role model of regional integration. How is the dynamic architecture of European institutions, including European Neighbourhood Policy, functioning? To what extent do the Arab League or the Union for the Mediterranean follow a similar logic of regional integration? How can we explain the intraregional differences in the Southern Mediterranean since the Arab Spring? Mediterranean Politics and Societies Migration, Gender, and Youth are policy fields that all Mediterranean Societies have in common, but approach differently. At the crossroads of theory and practice, this policy oriented module proposes solutions to the historical, social and cultural challenges Mediterranean societies face today. Project Management This module equips the participants with the professional skills and competences that will enable them to work in the field of Euro­Mediterranean cooperation. They will participate to negotiation and mediation trainings, simulation games and follow workshops on project cycle management and intercultural communication. Overview of the academic year The first term (October to December) starts in the European Union, in Nice, France. It encompasses classes on the basics of the five teaching modules. Studying in France helps students to analyse the Euro­Mediterranean relations and regional integration from an EU perspective. The second term (January to March) starts off in Tunis, Tunisia. Experts from the region and of different disciplines will analyse Euro­Mediterranean challenges in times of transformation and globalisation. A special focus will be put on youth policies in the Mediterranean. Studying in Tunisia will provide the students with a unique experience of a historic democratisation process that turns the country into a role model throughout the MENA region. The programme concludes (April to July) in Istanbul, Turkey at our partner university, Istanbul Bilgi University, one of the best private universities in the Eastern Mediterranean. A special focus will be given to Sustainable Development and Climate Action, as well as to Project Management classes. Students will have the opportunity to advance in their research work, as the months of May and June are left at their disposal to work on their thesis. The programme concludes with the defence of the thesis and oral exams. With their graduation, students become part of CIFE’s wide Alumni network. [-]

Master of Public and Development Management (MM)

University of the Witwatersrand
Campus Full time Part time 1800 hours February 2017 South Africa Johannesburg + 1 more

The Master of Management in the field of Public and Development Management is a rigorous academic programme aimed at providing students with the advanced conceptual and analytical abilities they need to become effective public policy-makers and senior public administrators and development practitioners. [+]

The Master of Management in the field of Public and Development Management is a rigorous academic programme aimed at providing students with the advanced conceptual and analytical abilities they need to become effective public policy-makers and senior public administrators and development practitioners. Candidates will require a foundational knowledge of public and development management. This includes a solid grounding in the theory and practice of governance, policy formation, and the management of large organisations, including public bureaucracies. While the Masters programme itself lasts a year, candidates are required to first complete the PDM course, which will provide them with the requisite foundation. Therefore, the Masters degree is effectively a two-year programme. Curriculum Masters students will first be required to complete four NQF level 9 courses. They will then be required to complete a dissertation of about 35000 – 40000 words on a contemporary public or development management subject. The course work and dissertation will each account for 90 of the 180 credits required to obtain the MM degree. The course work is aimed at providing students with the skills they need to conceive, plan, research, and write their dissertations. They also complete a reading elective designed to deepen their understanding of their chosen research topic. Students are required to develop a research proposal, which forms the basis of their dissertations, and to present it to a research committee for approval. The courses are: Quantitative research methods (20 credits) This course builds upon students’ prior knowledge of basic sampling methods and simple statistical inferences, including chi-square tests. This material is briefly revised, and the course then moves on to the formulation of research problems, purpose statements, and research hypotheses for use in quantitative research proposals; survey design, questionnaire construction, and simple data analysis; and hypothesis testing, including power analysis and regression analysis. Qualitative research methods (20 credits) This course teaches students to design and conduct qualitative research, and analyse qualitative data. Subjects include qualitative research paradigm assumptions, qualitative research designs/methods, various techniques and methods for gathering and analysing data, ethical issues, and evaluation. Research proposal design (10 credits) This course helps students to progress from a theoretical understanding of research models and methods to formulating an actual research proposal which will form the basis of their research report. The proposals are presented to and defended before a School proposal panel. Directed reading elective (40 credits) This course assists students to engage in depth with a subject relevant to public or development management. It comprises a series of seminars in which the lecturer and students work together to explore the literature on a given subject. Thesis The thesis is the pinnacle of the Masters programme. After formulating their proposals, students need to conduct original and in-depth research, analyse the results, and integrate research and analysis into a coherent thesis. Students are actively supported by thesis supervisors. All P&DM academic staff members supervise theses in their areas of specialisation. Admissions Applicants for the Masters programme first need to obtain the PDM with a pass mark of 65 per cent. Alternatively, they need to hold an honours degree in public management, obtained with a pass mark of at least 65 per cent. Applicants in the latter category may be required to supplement the standard Masters curriculum with additional courses. Course delivery Both the PDM and MM are offered as full-time, part-time and block study courses. Part-time students attend lectures in the evenings, and block release students attend lectures in two-week periods spaced throughout the year. Workloads Both the PDM and MM programmes are designed to encourage independent research and study. The workloads generally comprise 24 hours of contact time per course, with additional preparation and study hours taking total hours to the relevant NQF requirement. The total workload for the PDM is 1 200 notional hours. The total workload for the MM is 1 800 notional hours. Assessments Students are assessed by means of assignments and written examinations. Class and group assignments are also assessed. All examinations as well as the theses are externally examined. Applications Prospective students need to complete an application form which is available from the faculty office as well as online. They also need to submit records of previous academic performance, and a curriculum vitae. [-]

Best Masters in Africa 2017. About CLE The program seeks to provide a high quality preparation reflecting the multicultural aspects of Europe. The CLE Master Course is a program devoted to improving the quality of European Higher Education and strengthening intercultural communication. The programme encourages and supports: cooperation as well as student, scholar and staff exchange among universities; the worldwide promotion of the image of the European Union as a space of academic excellence; communication between university and cultural institutions and enterprises (Museums, Publishers, Foundations) as well as public and private companies; better career opportunities for its graduates and access to the international workforce. The CLE Master Course aims at providing international students with excellent T-shaped skills in: at least three European languages (English – mandatory, two other languages among French, Italian and Greek); at least three domains of European culture and thought (Literature, Art, Cultural History, Ethics and Aesthetics, Science of Language). The CLE Master Course is a two-year full-time academic program. At the end of the two-year program, after defending their Master’s thesis before an international committee, CLE students receive a multiple diploma issued by the universities of the consortium where they spent at least one semester. The language in which the courses are offered may vary according to the University providing them. Over the years, many additional activities (seminars, conferences, workshops, language courses) have been entrusted to highprofile scholars/guest lecturers. The CLE intends to maintain and reinforce this successful collaboration pattern. Participating universities : Alma Mater Studiorum, Università di Bologna, ITALIA Université de Haute-Alsace (Mulhouse), FRANCE Université de Strasbourg, FRANCE Aristoteleion Panepistimion Thessaloniki, ELLAS Université Cheikh Anta Diop (Dakar), SÉNÉGAL Objectives The CLE Master’s program teaches students how to manage the manifold aspects of the European scene, offering them a multicultural education along three main methodological lines: Cultural education in at least three domains of the European thought, ranging from literature to history and language sciences. High-level European languages education, complementing in-class with on-site practice in at least two countries of the consortium. Dynamic education thanks to his programme of international exchange. The CLE Master’s programme wants to train dynamic and critical experts in the humanities, with a good awareness of country-specific problems and the ability to make competent decisions, relying on their rich cultural baggage. Skill-based education intended to prepare the students to meet the needs of the job market. The CLE Master’s programme offers several complementary activities (seminars with international scholars and professionals) aiming to improve at best its student’s skills and to promote the employability. Therefore, the CLE Master also includes a one-week workshop studied to implement its student’s competencies and creativity as well as their knowledge of the job market. Academic competence Students who obtain the Master degree in European Literary Cultures should possess a level of competence which corresponds to the “second cycle descriptor level” of the Tuning Project for European Studies. They should be able: to interpret events, developments and EU policies in national, regional and local areas (through units 1 and 3 of the program); to use different disciplinary methodologies in a complementary way (through Units 1, 2 and 3); to develop a guided research project (through units 1 and 2) and to work independently (with the unit 4), to understand and interpret EU policies (through Unit 3) to understand and interpret ideas and concepts from Europe and European integration (through units 1 and 3) to communicate in several international languages, using appropriate terminology (through Unit 2 and Mobility required) to move in different countries and possess good attitudes of cultural understanding (thanks to the mobility requirement). As far as educational goals are concerned, a masters graduate from this program should: know at least three eurorean languages (English, French, and Italian and/or Greek, depending on the mobility chosen); know the different methodologies of literary studies (national literatures, comparative literature, literature and computer science etc.); be able to develop a comprehensive bibliography, a research record and a research paper on a topic concerning European literature; know at least three areas of methodologies (eg, history of literature, textual analysis, history, art history, history of ideas etc..) to analyze the production of European culture in depth; know the history and culture of Europe in order to contextualize the literary production in the broader context of European cultural history. Career Opportunities The main career perspectives for CLE graduates are: Doctoral research focused on European literature and cultures. The European Doctorate in Higher Education (DESE), «Les Littératures de l’Europe unie» is structured to develop the Master Erasmus Mundus CLE objectives. A career in the European cultural institutions or local authorities involving a cultural program (development and international exhibitions, the development and management of cultural exchange programs; development of cultural contents in various types of associations). Therefore the CLE Master's program encourages students contacts and collaboration with several institutions such as linguistic and cultural centers, foundations, museums and publishers. A career in the private sector, requiring book-related skills (translations, philological editions) or multicultural skills (cultural mediation, social responsibility agenda), journalism, literary criticism, radio or tv broadcasting, copyediting, public relations. For this reason, the CLE Master’s Program includes several occasions for its students to meet, discuss and collaborate with professionals of these various sectors. There is a very good employability of CLE graduated students in PhD and cultural institutions or enterprises. Here are the results of CLE survey about their position after graduation in the job market from 2010 until 2014. It shows that the 35% carried on their activity in PhD and the 65% found a position in: teaching, management, translation, intercultural relations, media and communication, freelance, art. [-]
