What will I learn?

The first year of Dalhousie’s Integrated Environmental Management program focuses on foundation sciences like agriculture, biology, chemistry and calculus. In your second and third years, you’ll study technologies associated with biological and environmental systems as they apply to fiber fuel and food. You’ll apply your knowledge and experience to solve industry-related problems in fourth year, preparing you for a career in this growing and exciting discipline.

Courses cover a wide variety of topics like agriculture, water and food processing systems, mechanics of materials, structures and their environment, renewable energy as well as engineering measurements and controls. You can also choose from numerous electives in your areas of interest to tailor your degree how you want.
