Profile of the Programme
The main goal of the study program is primarily to prepare graduates for subsequent master's studies in related study programs. However, graduates can also find employment in professional practice, and state and public administration, namely in evaluation, planning and decision-making in the field of environmental protection and engineering. When solving complex problems of environmental protection in connection with industrial activity, mining and processing of mineral resources, graduates can orient themselves very well not only in domestic and foreign professional literature, in professional databases, but they are also able to creatively process and create new data, information and procedures. Thanks to the acquired knowledge and skills, they can solve problems associated with environmental protection and engineering in the field of industrial and post-mining environment, including solving problems associated with the termination of mining and industrial activities, not only in protection, or prevention, individual components of the environment (air, water, soil) concerning the restoration of the landscape, but also comprehensively, in the protection of the entire biosphere.
Key Learning Outcomes
Key Lerning Outcomes are Expressed in following Structure: Knowledge, Skills, General competencies
The expert knowledge acquired during the study of compulsory and optional courses is: • knowledge of technical terminology in the field of geosciences and natural sciences; • basic expertise in physics, chemistry, pedology, geology, geodesy, geoinformatics, mining and earth sciences (courses: Bachelor's physics, Chemistry, Pedology, General geology, Geodesy, Fundamentals of geoinformatics, Mining); • knowledge of biotic and abiotic components of the environment (courses: General Biology, Botany, Zoology, Pedology, Water in the Landscape, Climate Change and Water Management, Phytocenology, Meteorology and Climatology, Environmental components and their properties); • knowledge of environmental aspects, pollution and its links to ecosystems, and its monitoring (courses: Environmental components and their properties; Instrumental methods of analysis; Ecotoxicology, State and development of the environment in the Czech Republic, Water and its properties); • knowledge of theoretical foundations for biological interactions in the field of environment and ecology (courses: General Ecology, Applied Ecology, Field Exercises in Ecology); • basic expertise in the field of environmental protection and engineering (courses: Water protection; Soil protection in industry, Air protection, Nature and monuments protection); • knowledge of social aspects of environmental protection (courses: Fundamentals of Environmental Law, Environmental Management, Landscape and Spatial Planning); • basic expertise in the use of computer technology for evaluating the state of the environment and its components (courses: Fundamentals of environmental data processing, Legislative and ethical aspects of geodata processing); • basic expertise in reclamation and revitalization in industry and mining-affected areas, including waste management and disposal (courses: Reclamation, Field exercises in reclamation, Applied dendrology, Raw materials industry, Environmental impact on the industry, Waste management).
• ability to understand field-specific legislative regulations of the Czech Republic and the EU; • ability to understand domestic and foreign expert literature, and professional databases; • ability to synthesize knowledge and expertise gained in the field of geosciences to identify and address problems related to the protection of the environment and its components and the protection of the environment and landscaping in industrial, mining and post-mining areas; • ability to choose appropriate research methods and procedures in the field of environmental impact assessment of mining and industrial technologies; • ability to use modern information technologies, ability to obtain, evaluate and interpret basic geoscientific information; • ability to use basic research procedures, apply methods and techniques of obtaining and processing environmental data and information; • work effectively in interdisciplinary teams focused on solving environmental and ecological problems related to mining and industry; • practical skills in the laboratory and the field; • communication skills for practice; • ability to apply the acquired theoretical knowledge in practice
General competencies:
• the ability to participate in negotiations and discussion in solving professional problems in practice, related to the focus of the study program; • the ability to lead a work team in solving a subtask; • active cooperation within work teams in domestic and global companies; • adaptation to working conditions with further training; • ability to communicate professionally in at least one foreign language.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples
• professional specialists in the fields of environmental protection and engineering in the industrial and post-mining landscape; • specialists in the field of restoration and reclamation of the industrial landscape; • prevention officers in environmental protection in the industrial and post-mining landscape; the program is specific for the graduate's broad professional scope; • lower and middle professional and management positions in professional companies focused on the restoration and protection of industrial and post-mining areas; • experts in control and inspection organizations dealing with the environment of the industrial and post-mining landscape.
