All NTU students except for those majoring in Civil and Environmental Engineering are eligible to offer and complete the Minor in Environmental Management. In addition, all NTU students can also choose to register for the Minor courses to fulfil the General Education Requirements (GER) of their respective degree programmes.
The Asian environmental engineering industry is huge and rapidly growing. Paradoxically, while rapid urbanization and economic development have led to the widespread destruction of virgin forests and pollution of rivers and lakes, it is the countries with clean and well-managed environments that will continue to attract valuable investments to fuel economic growth. Sustainable economic development therefore dictates that environmental concerns must be properly addressed.
The Minor in Environmental Management is designed to expose students to a wide diversity of subjects on environmental management and planning. Students will be equipped with the essential knowledge and skills on various aspects of protecting and improving our precious land, air and water resources.
