International Environmental Engineering Certificate (19-IEEC)

Duration

  • 12-16 weeks (an extension could be granted under special circumstances)

The Environmental Management studies, prepare you for an international career in a particularly dynamic climate change aspects. This is a balanced treatment of Environmental engineering by combining engineering concepts with environmental ethics. This program deals with important concepts of sustainable development the need for engineers and other technical professional to become even more environmentally responsible during this time of increasing awareness of environmental concerns.

Applicants learn when water is “clean enough” and how to measure water quality characteristics. Applications coverage with the quest for clean water and covers all the major “pollution areas” as well as emphasizing the concepts of pollution prevention and life cycle analysis in the chapter on the collection and disposal of municipal solid waste. It also provides case studies that center on technical as well as ethical problems, offering ideal opportunities for instructors to relate their own

Start / Registration

Registration to our programs is made by was of completing our online application format this link: http://german-academic-institute.org/application-section-a.html One may contact us per e-mail as well at: contact@german-academic-institute.eu Registration should be concluded atleast 4 weeks prior to the beginning of the course.
Summarized description of course topics & additional literature

The program also provides comprehensive exposure to all types of environmental problems, including ecosystem dynamics, wastewater treatment, and air pollution control

The main elements of focus and observation are:

  • Incorporates ethical decision making into the discussions and problem sets.
  • Uses material balances to unify the coverage of all types of environmental problems, including ecosystem dynamics, wastewater treatment, and air pollution control.
  • The various tools engineers use in making decisions, including technology, benefit/cost, risk, and ethics.
  • Begins the Applications coverage with the quest for clean water. Students learn when water is “clean enough” and how to measure water quality characteristics.
  • All the major “pollution areas”
  • Emphasis of concepts of pollution prevention and life cycle analysis in the chapter on the collection and disposal of municipal solid waste.
  • Provision of case studies that center on technical as well as ethical problems, offering ideal opportunities for instructors to relate their own experiences.

Qualifications

The Modules which are alligned up with  innovative materials  including the Practical Training Attachment (PTA)to each course, were designed by a group of international EU and ACP practicing educationists and experienced active experts in the industry. These provisions are being made possible through the European Union programme for Capacity Building for Higher Education in Developing Countries (EDULINK I, II and ACP Science and Technology,Erasmus Mundus etc..)
As a result of the years of co-operation between the German Academic Institute , F+U Group (Schools, Academies & Universities) Heidelberg,Germany,(International University of Cooperative Education and The University of Applied Science-Berlin) and other EU-Higher Education, Vocational & Continuing Educational Training Institutes, qualified (passing of both theory & practical training attachment) applicants will be a warded a German Academic Institute Professional Certificate (GAIPC) in cooperation with its state recognized German academic training Institutes. This co-operative engagement is important and practiced  at GAI in order  to guarantee “Quality Assurance” and “EU added value elements” of course content.
