Protection of environmental systems

 Objectives of the Program

The Bachelor’s Degree in “Ecology and Environment” aims to provide students with a scientific education on continental ecosystems and sustainable development. This program emphasizes a quantitative, physical, chemical, and biological approach to natural and anthropogenic processes, focusing on the integrated observation of natural “objects” involved in environmental processes.

The main focus of the program is on understanding and raising awareness of the importance of ecology and the environment in preserving and protecting natural resources in all their components, including vegetation, animals, soil, and water, in natural ecosystems or agroecosystems. Two key points make this program unique:

(1) Strong interdisciplinarity based on a quantitative and qualitative approach to natural processes affecting the ecological balance of the physical and biological environment. The modules offered in the third year revolve around this approach, with connections to other specializations such as agronomy, water sciences, soil sciences, etc. This specialization allows students to broaden their knowledge from their core discipline to other specialties and provides them with the necessary scientific background for potential pathways in the field of Life and Earth Sciences or other fields related to the environment.

(2) Strong complementarity in terms of analytical and statistical tools and geospatial analysis is integrated into the curriculum to enable students to develop the necessary capabilities and resources for a new approach based on autonomy and project development.

Profiles and Targeted Competencies

The establishment of the “Ecology and Environment” program aligns with the development policy of the University Center of Tipaza, as outlined in the five-year development plan of the institution. This interdisciplinary program involves specialized faculty members in ecology and environment, as well as various competencies from agricultural and process engineering. Another advantage lies in the presence of four professors with the highest rank in the field of Life and Earth Sciences (2 professors and 2 associate professors).

Regional and National Employment Opportunities

Upon completion of their degree, graduates will be able to address any environmental issue related to ecology and environmental diagnostics, including impact assessment, restoration, and remediation. Their interventions will cover various aspects, particularly those related to the Tipaza region, such as human activities affecting coastal degradation, sustainable development, soil degradation and erosion, soil and water pollution, integrated ecosystem management, etc.

Pathways Programs

After completing their bachelor’s degree in “Ecology and Environment,” students will have the opportunity to pursue master’s studies in the same field or choose other closely related programs such as Water and Environment, Water and Bioclimatology, Ecosystem Protection, or Environmental Protection.
