Environmental Management and Toxicology Programme

About Environmental Management and Toxicology
The Environmental Management and Toxicology programme was established to provide trained and skilled manpower into solving present and emerging global environmental problems through monitoring, surveillance, and management. It equips students with knowledge on the environmental fate of pollutants within the environment and their effects on biological systems. The Department brings together experienced faculties who use multitude of approaches to understand diverse toxic substances and possible ways to manage them. Our research combines environmental chemistry, environmental toxicology, environmental biology and public health. The programme is designed to provide the training needed for understanding the environment by exploring specific aspects such as natural resource conservation, ecosystem functioning, ecotoxicology, waste management, environmental administration and policy, Eco-innovation, climate change and other global environmental issues.

The philosophy of the Environmental Management and Toxicology programme is to engender or assure an improved environment essential for both human and livestock through the training of skilled manpower with adequate and relevant knowledge and expertise on issues of quality and safe environment required for a sustainable and overall human development.

Aim and Objective
1. To produce highly skilled manpower in Environmental Management using model curriculum with courses designed for thorough grounding in the latest techniques at resolving environmental and public health issues. 2. To produce graduates with sufficient knowledge and skills to maintain the environment and prevent infections and infestations for the overall improvement of human and livestock health. 3. To enable students to gain knowledge of the interrelationship and interdependency (Dynamics) of the components of the environment to ensure a stable and safe environment for man. 4. To take cognisance of the overall academic objectives of Elizade University built on result and mission oriented education to produce highly skilled, cultured and self-reliant graduates which would be able to improve and sustain the quality of our environment and human health for sustainable development. 5. To produce skilled manpower that would be relevant in Research Oriented Institutions, Impact assessment Consultancy Firms, Oil and Gas Exploration Companies, Agricultural and desertification programmes, Health Institutions, Government and Public Institutions and related organizations.
