The programme also includes a GIS Technologies in Geosciences module, which will help you master the basics of working with big data and visualizing results in the form of maps, charts and graphs. The programme is available both in Russian and in English.
You can become a next-generation ecological engineer and help businesses reduce environmental and financial risks, optimize production from the point of view of environmental impact in absolutely any field – from gold mining to the production of goods from recycled plastic.
