The study of Environmental Science is the application of scientific disciplines to address environmental and socio-economic problems. It uses an interdisciplinary approach to examine the natural world and the impacts of organisms on our planet. Some of the key challenges faced by the current generation include environmental degradation, energy crisis, water scarcity, food security, environmental sustainability, the threat to biodiversity and climate change.


  • Examine scientific knowledge of environmental systems
  • Discuss environmental assessment, audit, and monitoring
  • Design appropriate technology in harvesting natural resources;
  • Assess scientific knowledge in environmental problem solving;
  • Discuss the inter-disciplinary approach in conservation and management
