MSc Degrees in Denmark 2017. With an MSc in Aquatic Science and Technology, you can contribute to sustainable harvest and production of fish and shell-fish, assessment and management of human impact and environmental change as well as cutting-edge research on aquatic ecosystems, traits of their inhabitants, and their impact on global climate. Two-thirds of the Earth’s surface is covered by water, and the seas, lakes, and streams have a crucial role to play in regulating our planet’s biogeography and climate—and in maintaining biodiversity. Moreover, a large part of the global population is dependent on fisheries and aquaculture as a source of food or income, and ‘blue growth’ features high on the EU’s political agenda. We are facing major global challenges in relation to the environment and food supply. It is becoming increasingly important to utilize marine and freshwater ecosystems more sustainably, and to develop the necessary technology for sustainable production of fish and shellfish. It is also necessary to assess and reduce the environmental impact from other human activities, for instance maritime transport and off-shore energy production. Maintaining a healthy aquatic environment is a pre-requisite for all life on our planet, and society will need professionals who are able to combine research and technology, to safeguard the aquatic ecosystems and resources. Study programme focus The MSc programme in Aquatic Science and Technology focuses on aquaculture, fisheries, oceanography, and the management of aquatic resources. The study programme addresses the challenges associated with sustainable fisheries and aquaculture as well as maintenance of... [-]

MSc in Agro-Environmental Management

Aarhus University
Campus Full time 2 years September 2017 Denmark Aarhus

Students in the Agro-Environmental Management programme are out to change the world. Rather than just making minor changes to existing production systems, these students are out to rethink the entire production cycle by optimising production goals as well as environmental targets. [+]

DEVELOPING SUSTAINABLE AGROECOSYSTEMS Students in the Agro-Environmental Management programme are out to change the world. Rather than just making minor changes to existing production systems, these students are out to rethink the entire production cycle by optimising production goals as well as environmental targets. They seek to develop sustainable pathways for every level of food production, to use new technologies to comply with increased regulation, and to eliminate waste from the entire production cycle. This approach is not about maximising production – it’s about balancing production with environmental concerns. Courses provide a strong theoretical background in subjects such as the management of border systems and the workings of the nutrient cycle. In the second year, students will have the opportunity to apply this knowledge in their thesis project. AN IDEAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENT Denmark, a country that produces three times as much food as it consumes, is an ideal location for studying agricultural systems. Its agricultural history and long-standing strict environmental regulations mean that students have many practical examples and a large existing body of research to draw from. Aarhus University is alone in offering this specific degree. The programme looks at topics such as nutrient cycling and environmental management; environmental effects of various types of production; xenobiotics; use of natural resources; geographic information systems; environmental legislation and regulation; nature restoration; and climate change. These topics are of global relevance. Combined with the considerable Danish expertise and experience in this area, this means that the degree programme attracts students from all... [-]
