Agro- and Ecosystems Engineering is about ensuring the prosperity and well-being of current and future generations in both the global North and global South. Agro- and ecosystems provide a wide range of essential goods and services such as food, water, energy, and biodiversity. Yet, the contemporary context of population growth, rapid urbanization, economic globalization, climate change, deforestation, soil pollution and degradation challenges the future provisioning of a sufficient quantity and quality of these goods and services.

What is the Master of Agro- and Ecosystems Engineering all about?

The Master of Agro- and Ecosystems Engineering (ACE) provides in-depth knowledge of the functioning and management of natural and production-oriented ecosystems. You can choose to focus on either temperate or (sub)tropical settings, or a combination of both. You compliment the interdisciplinary core programme with a major specialization in one out of four different domains: biological production, abiotic and biotic environment, bioeconomics, and bio-geo information....

About the course

The course is delivered at University Centre Myerscough and awarded by the University of Central Lancashire. This online MSc Arboriculture and Urban Forestry, awarded from the University of Central Lancashire, is a ground-breaking course with an international profile. The course recognises the multidisciplinary approach needed to design, maintain and manage trees as part of green infrastructure projects. The course is designed for professionals who wish to engage further with an understanding of urban trees, their management, and sustainable ways forward for our urban forests.

The course encourages debate and critical evaluation of practices and innovative research within arboriculture and urban forestry, taking both a scientific and industry viewpoint on current practice. We look at the current issues in delivering good tree care and healthy urban forests – because trees and urban green space contribute so much to the liveability of our urban areas and yet they are often neglected as a topic or seen only as a secondary resource in urban areas....

MSc in Agro-Environmental Management Developing sustainable agroecosystems

Students in the Agro-Environmental Management programme are out to change the world. Rather than just making minor changes to existing production systems, these students are out to rethink the entire production cycle by optimising production goals as well as environmental targets. They seek to develop sustainable pathways for every level of food production, to use new technologies to comply with an increased regulation, and to eliminate waste from the entire production cycle. This approach is not about maximising production – it’s about balancing production with environmental concerns.

Courses provide a strong theoretical background in subjects such as the management of border systems and the workings of the nutrient cycle. In the second year, students will have the opportunity to apply this knowledge to their thesis project.... [-]

How can forests help us fight cli­mate change?

Do you want to affect the future of forests, a key natural resource and wellspring of biodiversity? Have you ever wondered why forests are called the lungs of the Earth and how climate change relates to forests? Or how trees are grown and processed into products in a sustainable and efficient manner? And how are the economy and forests interrelated? You can find answers to these questions when you study forest sciences. You will come to view forests not only as a setting for jogging trails or as a source of wood, but rather as a source of versatile renewable resources and as complex ecological systems that are closely connected to their environment. The relationship between humans and nature and between society and natural resources is a strong feature of these studies. The Master's Programme in Forest Sciences at the University of Helsinki has been ranked 4th in the world, placing it as one of the best educational programmes in Finland.... [-]
