Что я буду изучать?

APPLIED WATER SCIENCE AT LAURIER

As a student in the Applied Water Science program, you'll learn the underlying scientific principles, processes and theories concerning the physical, chemical and biological properties of water and the factors that play a critical role in maintaining ecosystem and human health.

Through a combination of training and practical work experience, including co-op, you'll identify and solve ongoing threats to our water resources including those caused by human activities and climate change. You'll be able to recognize that the availability of safe, clean water and its resources is a fundamental question of social justice.

This program will help you develop the skills needed to apply quantitative and computer analysis to asses, monitor and sustainable manage land and water resources. You'll understand the critical need of government responsibility for managing and protecting water and Earth's resources.

Throughout your studies, you will feel empowered to contribute to the quest to improve the availability, security and reliability of human water supplies, while ensuring the whole ecosystem and human health.

RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES

This program includes a course in field methods, and the opportunity to take other field courses. Faculty members hire students as research assistants to work help with studies in the lab and field. Students completing an honours thesis will conduct a yearlong research project including data collection, analysis and write-up.

Program Highlights

Students looking for work-related experience in the water sciences may also qualify to participate in co-op, which will include two eight-month work placements in the water sector after year three.

You will have opportunities to strengthen communication skills through a combination of extensive fieldwork, excursions and lecture/laboratory experiences.
