Diploma in Environmental Technology

QIU’s Diploma in Environmental Technology programme provides you with the theoretical and practical knowledge needed for success in the growing field of environmental technology. Graduates will acquire skills and techniques in environmental sampling, monitoring, data analysis and information technology tools. They will become familiar with applying the principles of ecosystem-based management for sustainability and have the ability to manage environmental projects from planning to implementation and maintenance.

 

QIU’s programme provides an opportunity for students to apply their skills through partnerships in the community and stresses the need for designing and implementing systems to prevent, control and clean-up environmental contaminations.

 

Laboratory practice in water quality testing, groundwater movement, computer-aided environmental audits and the chemistry of pollutants provides you with the skills needed to analyse and remediate the urban environment. This is to eradicate recent global phenomena such as haze, poor drinking water quality, leachate contamination, improper solid waste and wastewater disposal, and many others which have attracted public concern.
