Masters in Sustainability Studies in Asia 2017/2018. M.Plan. in Urban Design, Sustainability and Conservation From small neighborhoods to large metropolitan centers, urban areas in India today are in a state of rapid growth and transformation. Rapid urbanization and relentless globalization threaten to erode, diminish, and erase the cultural heritage (tangible and intangible) along with irreparable destruction to the natural environment of places. We believe that a deeper understanding and engagement with the cultural heritage and natural environment and ecology of particular locales will lead to creative and innovative strategies to protect heritage values while reaching for inclusive and sustainable goals in the design of urban landscapes. The Master of Planning in Urban Design, Sustainability, and Conservation, prepares students with the knowledge and skills to understand and analyze urban areas as spatial structures, social networks, cultural landscapes, and service systems, and to design better, and more inclusive and sustainable urban environments responsive to the particular natural and cultural identities and heritage of the place.

Masters in Sustainability Studies in Asia 2017/2018. As a vital input of economy, energy is one of the most strategic tools for sustainable development of countries. The contemporary energy system, which is 90 percent dependent on fossil fuels, is not sustainable due to resource scarcity, environmental problems, and global climate change. Another factor increasing the importance of energy is that in today’s world, where natural gas is used as a transition fuel on the path towards a low-carbon energy system, the geopolitical rivalry among major energy players continues to heighten. This rivalry accelerates the struggle for resources and causes global economic and political destabilization. Turkish energy system is also faced with crucial problems. Turkey imports about three quarter of its energy in exchange for 50-60 billion USD and its dependence on foreign resources threatens energy security as well as national security of the country. Turkey’s import dependency on natural gas and oil, which are the most consumed primary resources, is currently more than 90 percent. Furthermore, domestic energy production is gradually decreasing while the gap between production and consumption continues to widen. In the 21st century, state economy cannot be sustained under such circumstances in energy. Another important feature of Turkey’s energy system is high energy demand owing to her rapid development, which attracts the attention of the world as a rising market. In the last 50 years, the primary energy demand increased by 5 percent while the demand for electricity increased by 8 percent and this situation is expected... [-]

Master in Natural Resources Management (NRM)

Natural resources are the basis of livelihoods and economies of every nation in Asia. Given the rich cultural, social, political, and biophysical diversity across Asia, the professionals working in natural resources management need a strong working knowledge of several interrelated sciences.

Through teaching, research and outreach activities, the NRM of SERD at AIT seek to develop professionals who can contribute to the conservation and sustainable management of terrestrial and coastal resources and ecosystems. We provide education and research opportunities leading to M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in NRM. The complex nature of NRM issues requires a broad range of skills and techniques ranging from the social to the physical sciences. The NRM field of study therefore specializes in areas as diverse as community-based natural resources management, forestation and forestry, integrated land management, biodiversity conservation, climate mitigation/adaptation, and the valuation of ecosystem services.

NRM also provides training, outreach and capacity-building opportunities to a growing number of interested clients on many NRM related areas. Besides providing training, we have assisted universities in Nepal, Indonesia, Laos PDR, Vietnam, Cambodia and other countries to develop their capacity to implement academic programs on environment and NRM.
