Geography & Meteorology Introduction The global Environment Question came into Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT) as a technological issue with the creation of the faculty of Environmental Sciences in 1985. In 1991 the faculty set up an Environmental Management programme for the principal aim of developing and training specialist Environmental Managers and monitoring the environment. After the 1992 summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the programme progressed beyond the common, 'what of the Environment' to ask how, where, when, why and eventually the bigger WHAT of the environment questions, which are more pertinent to environmental management and survival. It is known that food production and water resource development, industrialization and urbanization are essential elements of human existence, which have profound impacts on our environment. In the interest of Environmental sustainability, we now design our specific objectives at the post-graduate levels to address six main questions, viz: How do we control and manage our environmental pollution and degradation? How do we respond to climate change problems? How do we farm and how do we industrialize and or Urbanize in environment friendly ways? Where do we urbanize? How do we manage our land, air and water resources? How do we manage man-environmental hazard relationships? To answer these questions, the crucial issue of the assessment of the environment comes into play. Thus we ask: How do we develop our environmental resources? What are the positive and negative impacts of resources development on the environment? How do the economist, sociologist, psychologist, physical scientist and the ecologist etc perceive our actions? How do we reduce environmental pollution, climate change, flooding and environmental degradation to achieve environmental sustainability? What do we do to substitute 'poverty' with general affluence through appropriate environmental management practices? These questions which are very crucial to Nigerians today for tomorrow constitute the foci of our researches. The researches are not only evaluative but also descriptive, designative, predictive and prescriptive regarding the above crucial environmental questions. We therefore adopt international outlook and approach. Environmental issues such as water and atmospheric pollution and climate change problems involve trans-national boundaries. The Department of Geography and meteorology provides the necessary undergraduate base for these advanced questions. Philosophy The fundamental philosophy underlying the programme is the training of graduates from a wide range of discipline and backgrounds to the highest academic standards in the identification and resolution of environmental issues. Vision The programme will produce skilled manpower, trained specifically for environmental surveillance, monitoring and management as against the present practices where these tasks were performed by people trained in basic and applied sciences. The academic programme is also designed to provide the training needed for an understanding of environment and build upon this foundation by exploring in some depths, specific aspects such as resources depletion, recycling, re-use and the impact of science and technology Aims and Objectives Postgraduate programmes in environmental Management and control are designed to : Increase the students understanding of the multi-disciplinary nature of environmental issues. Provide sound specialized and effective practical oriented training of course work fieldwork and research in environmental monitoring, management and control. Provide high-level skilled manpower with both academic and professional competence for tackling environmental issues in all their ramifications. Programmes The postgraduate programmes ESUT has in environmental management and control are as follows: PGD Environmental Management and Control (PGD EMC) Master of Environmental Management and Control (Master of EMC)(Professional) M.Sc Environmental Management and Control (M.Sc)(Academic) Ph.D Environmental Management and Control (Ph.d. EMC) General Regulations Post Graduate Diploma (PGD) in Environmental Management and Control (PGD EMC) The programme will consist of course work, field trip, practical, examination and short project (long essay) Admission Requirements The criteria for admission into the PGD programmes are as follows; Matriculation requirement of individual university including mathematics and English Language.

Sc and Ph.D in: Project management Construction management The programmes are board-based, designed for technocrats, business executives, academicians, practitioners and person who wish to develop other project, and cost management knowledge, practice, skills and research capabilities in the context of business, commerce and industry. Philosophy The programmes are rooted in the belief that the built environment industry mirrors the national economy. Economics that still have large mass of housing and infrastructure to provide and/or maintain for critical masses of their people have to put the industry in a front burner. The provision of high quality work force power to meet the challenges of a developing economy is indispensable. These challenges include requirements and research endeavours to promote the built environment industry and general development of the society. The programmes are therefore geared towards producing high quality manpower that will not only be self employing but employ others and could be of consultancy status in the fields of study. General Aim/Objectives The main aim of the programme is to enhance the student's marketability and self-reliance; equip them professionally, and academically by imparting sound knowledge, theory and practice of the arts and science of the application of project, construction and cost management and technological skills, techniques, knowledge, tools and processes to projects and operations.

Urban & Regional Planning Introduction Rapid population growth and the associated rapid rates of city growth coupled with technological changes have generated an increasing demand for planners on all aspects of human endeavours particularly in urban and rural areas of developing countries. The frightening rate of rural-urban migration and the concomitant physical, social, economic and cultural problems resulting from, or precipitated in urban areas calls for urgent need of planners with requisite academic, professional and technical skills and capacities to deal with such situations. On the other hand, the rural areas of Nigeria suffer from declining youth population, skilled manpower, finance, modernization of decaying agricultural production infrastructure and the much needed social amenities to cater for needs of over 70% of the country's population. These scenarios call for concerted efforts on part of government and universities to initiate new programmes as well as, redesign existing ones to meet the ever changing needs and challenges of sustainable national, physical and socio-economic development. The role of planners in this regard cannot be over-emphasized. Nigeria is in direct need of planners to help manage urban and rural spaces or areas. At the moment, competent academically and professionally trained planners are indeed only produced in very few Nigerian universities. The shortage of professional planners must be stemmed if chaos is to be mitigated in urban and rural spaces. This is why the department of Urban and Regional Planning Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT) has seized the challenge given by the National Universities Commission (NUC) to reform its postgraduate programs to achieve demands for national development and international best practices. Graduate Diploma and Degrees The postgraduate programmes in the Department of Urban and Regional Planning are designed to meet the needs of both full-time and part-time students intending to become effectively involved in socio-economic and physical development planning profession in an ever dynamic environment such as Nigeria. Urban and Regional Planning is eclectic in scope and this is why the programmes are made sufficiently broad-based and flexible to bestride complementary environmental design and planning disciplines. This ensures that whilst meeting the general requirements of the Nigerian Institute of Town Planners (NITP) and the Town Planners Registration Council (TOPREC) on one hand and National Universities Commission (NUC) on the other, the programmes incorporate much of the social science-oriented urban and regional planning theory and methodology that normally lie beyond the scope of a town planning programme(s). To ensure their relevance and sustainability, experienced and competent planning experts, particularly urban and regional planners, both on full-time and part-time employment are made to man these programmes. These programmes are designed with a view to giving due weight to theory and practice through lectures, seminars, computer applications, studio demonstrations and field investigations. It is recognized that while enough premium should be placed on the practical aspects of the learning process, a rigorous theoretical foundation is very desirable for both studio and fieldwork. Philosophy the philosophy of the Postgraduate Urban and Regional Planning Programmes in ESUT, is built on intellectual leadership and the preparedness to confront spatial and environmental challenges. Hence each programme focuses on details providing practical training geared towards the effective planning and development of Nigeria cities, towns, villages and their surrounding regions in order to achieve national objectives in planning and development. Goals and Objectives The goal of the programmes is to produce planners registerable with NITP/TOPREC who are both academicians and core professionals. Against this background, the graduate degree programmes are designed with the goal of increasing the ability of students/participants to prepare regional, urban, town and village development plans by studying current practices and providing techniques for: Analysing and understanding how regions, cities, towns, and villages work and are likely to develop; Assessing the resources and constraints to effective planning and development; and Strengthening institutional capacities for the implementation of regional, urban, town and village development plans. Against this background, the following objectives predominate: To develop students' understanding of URP through the study of theories, methods and techniques for planning, designing and managing land use activities and environment; To assist the students to acquire constructive understanding of the social, economic, technological and legislative framework of society with the physical, social and economic processes in operation and, the potential capacities of the frameworks to make more coherent and relevant collaborative policy formulation and implementation; To provide students with varied practical experience of realistic planning problems; To encourage students to develop interest in planning skills and research methods; To contribute to the manpower requirements of the nation by educating and training of prospective planners and also offering of refresher courses to already registered planners through in-house/programme seminars, workshops and colloquium; and finally. To provide training and re-training programmes that will elevate sub-professionals to professional cadre of the discipline.

M.Des. in Earth Education and Communication Environmental education traditionally swings between extremes of gloom and doom at the state of the earth to a joyous celebration of the wonder that is nature. The earth education course at Srishti is consciously centered in the magical majesty of the natural world in order to help students get inspired by a natural connection to everything, both living and nonliving. This course is constructed and delivered with a focus on experiential learning with chosen sites serving as labs. The students develop a contextual framework by extracting and extrapolating from real time engagement in a specific place with a specific context. In these sites, an exploration is about a hands-on engagement with people and their lives, local flora and fauna and the land itself. Art inspired by animals in action (Ananya Singh. Zoo Project), Photo Courtesy: Anupama Arun Current academic-speak focuses on separating economics and ethics while debating environmental issues. In addition, there is a tendency to either look at a site in a people-centric manner or else in a nature-centric manner. This course is an attempt to explore how these polarised, `silo-ised’ views can be made to gradually come together and overlap, dissolving discipline based perceptions and preconceived ideas. The goal of this course is to inspire artists, designers from diverse disciplines, educators, filmmakers, architects, agriculturists, business graduates and makers who seek to build their practices in an ecological frame. It is for people who desire to inspire intrinsic action through their communication methods, using diverse media, educational interventions and lived experiences. The impact of this deepening awareness is finally seen in various forms: in films and textiles, in storybooks for children, educational toys, art installations and also in the development of unique design solutions to pressing urban ecological issues. It also reflects in fostering long-term relationships with people and organizations on the ground. Disciplines The M.Des in Earth Education is informed by the following learning disciplines: Language Arts Sustainable Studies Ecology and Environment Policy Studies and Environmental law Critical Geography Urban Studies and Design Environmental graphics Film Animation Experimental Media Arts Textile Arts Mathematics and Physical Sciences Photography Systems Design Information Technology Visual Communication Design Research and Collaboration The program is closely linked with a wide range research and practice spaces: UNESCO Chair Srishti Films Design+Environment+Law Laboratory (DEL Laboratory) Design EARTH Learning Network on Sustainability (LeNS)-India Biomimcry Lab Key Values Embodied and Reflective practice Compassion and Interdependence Courage in Choice making Humility in approach Equity and Justice Thoughtful Restraint Course structure Studios encourage active, contextual learning where students develop core disciplinary skills and knowledge. Studios facilitate collaborative and creative design solutions to complex, open-ended problems Workshops provide intense learning experiences in making and doing, across the different disciplines. Internship with an industry or a design studio is compulsory for students at the end of 1st year for M.Des. Self Initiated Project is an end of the semester challenge that allows the student to engage in research / enquiry or design based projects. Students begin by writing their project proposal and defining the scope of their project and they are mentored by faculty / design professionals. Electives are liberal arts courses aimed to cultivate intellectual and reflective abilities in students and motivate them to probe deeper and approach their design process in a holistic manner. Capstone Project is the culmination of the research, capabilities and knowledge gained over the last three semesters. Students are required to submit their design output and a mandated thesis document.
