Czech University Of Life Sciences Faculty of Environmental Sciences

Introduction

The Faculty of Environmental Sciences was established on 1 July 2007 on the basis of the consent of the Accreditation Commission of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports (20 June 2007), and the approval of the CULS Academic Senate (26 June 2007). The faculty is divided into six departments which cover the whole field of education and science at the faculty. According to the Bologna Declaration, the Faculty fully implements a three-tier system of studies and combines an ecological and landscape section within itself.

Departments

  • Department of Applied Geoinformatics and Spatial Planning
  • Department of Land Use and Improvement
  • Department of Ecology
  • Department of Applied Ecology
  • Department of Environmental Geosciences
  • Department of Water Resources and Environmental Modeling

The faculty currently offers accredited fields of study in Czech and English languages in bachelor’s, continuing master’s and doctoral degrees of study.

This school offers programs in:
  • English

Master in Environmental Geosciences

Campus Full time September 2018 Czech Republic Prague

Environmental Geosciences graduates will gain the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge of Earth sciences, specifically in the field of geology, environmental geochemistry (e.g., environmental contamination), environmental hydrogeology and paleoecology (e.g., global climate development). [+]

Environmental Geosciences graduates will gain the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge of Earth sciences, specifically in the field of geology, environmental geochemistry (e.g., environmental contamination), environmental hydrogeology and paleoecology (e.g., global climate development). During their studies, students will gain experience with modern analytical procedures and will attend practical courses and workshops.

Environmental Geosciences are currently at the forefront of many scientific disciplines and have an important practical outcome as well. The understanding of pollutants’ behaviour in various environmental compartments, remediation of contaminated sites and evolution of ecosystems in the Earth’s history are just a few examples of the topics covered by the programme. The laboratories at the Faculty of Environmental Sciences are equipped with high-end instrumentation for advanced specialized methods used in environmental geochemistry, such as speciation and specialized isotope analyses. These techniques are currently fast emerging and crucial in the developing fields of Environmental Geochemistry and Biogeochemistry.... [-]


Master in Environmental Modelling

Campus Full time September 2018 Czech Republic Prague

The “Environmental Modelling” field comprehensively trains students in the modelling of natural processes associated with inanimate nature, such as hydrological and hydraulic modelling, modelling of chemical processes and processes in the atmosphere. [+]

The “Environmental Modelling” field comprehensively trains students in the modelling of natural processes associated with inanimate nature, such as hydrological and hydraulic modelling, modelling of chemical processes and processes in the atmosphere.

Guarantors of subjects from the ranks of scientists and teachers from Prague universities and research institutions – Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at Charles University, Czech Technical University – Faculty of Civil Engineering, the Danish Hydraulic Institute - DHI, a.s., Institute of Thermomechanics AS CR, v. v. i. and the Institute of Hydrodynamics AS CR, v. v. i. contribute to the high-level of the field. Graduates find jobs in operating, administrative, management, consulting, forecasting and research segments and are trained for activities in international expert and research teams.... [-]


Master in Landscape Planning

Campus Full time September 2018 Czech Republic Prague

The Landscape Planning programme aims to sufficiently prepare graduates to be competitive on the international job market. The field of study is therefore strongly oriented toward acquisition of practical skills, wherein the professional staff of the faculty, including foreign scientific researchers, will share their current knowledge in the field of landscape planning, landscape ecology and landscape architecture with you.

The field of study is therefore strongly oriented toward acquisition of practical skills, wherein the professional staff of the faculty, including foreign scientific researchers, will share their current knowledge in the field of landscape planning, landscape ecology and landscape architecture with you.

Students learn by working on real projects and become skilled in applied sustainable land use planning and resource management. We often focus this work on the dynamic and varied landscape of the Czech Republic, however sustainable approaches to landscape planning can be applied elsewhere. ... [-]


Master in Nature Conservation

Campus Full time September 2018 Czech Republic Prague

Nature Conservation (NCO) master´s degree programme is open for bachelor´s degree-holders with a background in ecology, biology, zoology, botany, conservation biology, landscape ecology or environmental sciences. [+]

Nature Conservation (NCO) master´s degree programme is open for bachelor´s degree-holders with a background in ecology, biology, zoology, botany, conservation biology, landscape ecology or environmental sciences. The NCO programme is best suited for those wishing to acquire advanced knowledge and research-based skills in nature conservation. The NCO programme provides a solid understanding in both applied and theory-based resource conservation and management, based on principles of applied landscape ecology. NCO is an accredited degree programme required for practice of management of protected landscape areas with the Nature Conservation Agency of the Czech Republic, the EU and applicable international locations as well....
