Welcome to the web portal of the Department of Environmental Resource Management of the University of Calabar, Nigeria, the cradle of Africa’s Sustainable Icons. Our primary objective is to empower men and women with the necessary knowledge, skills and tools that would promote the sustainability of our human and physical environments by designing and maintaining environmental systems. The Environmental Resource Management Programme started as a Unit in the Department of Geography and Environmental Science but has evolved after the emergence of the Faculty of Environmental Sciences in the University of Calabar into a full Department.
The Department undertakes results in the award of B.Sc., PGD, M.Sc and PhD degrees in Environmental Resource Management by the University. It attracts a large number of intending scholars who are interested in efficiently and effectively managing the earth’s resources. Its multidisciplinary approach of study is unique as students are exposed to theoretical and practical courses not only in Environmental Resource Management but also in Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science, Microbiology, Mathematics, Geology, Oceanography, Agriculture, Sociology, Economics and Estate Management. The programme also has a tradition of establishing cordial relationships between students and staff in a conducive atmosphere which usually leads to collaborations to conduct research vital to the society and environment.
Our philosophy of providing liberal education on knowledge of the environment and the acquisition of skills for the management of the earth’s environment has put the Department in a good stead to offer exceptional educational services at world class facilities. Additionally, our highly trained and motivated team of teaching and non-teaching staff led by three professors, senior and junior lecturers, administrative and technical staff, as well as experts from other related disciplines is also engaged to enrich our curriculum and culture of high standards. This has made our graduates invaluable to various sectors and segments of society including educational and research institutions, government agencies and industries.
We look forward to working with you to achieve your ambitous dreams of being a global changer by considering either enrolling into any of our programmes or recommending them to all those in your sphere of influence.
