Professional prospects

Public environmental management at the national, regional or local level; environmental law, education and communication; business activity on the topics of the environment and resources, industrial management and waste management; land zoning and urbanism, etc.: these are some of the areas that demand professionals with outstanding knowledge of the environment coming from different disciplines and licentiate and undergraduate degree programs.



Professionals with training in the environmental area work primarily in consultancy services and in the public administration. This is followed by industry, universities and research centers. A smaller proportion work for foundations or associations, or as independent professionals.



Many businesses include an environmental affairs office within their corporate structure whose purpose is, on the one hand, to ensure regulatory compliance, prevent incidents and improve the corporate image and, on the other hand, to develop competitive strategies and innovative projects in the environmental field. The implementation of best practices and relations with groups external to the company with environmental concerns are expected to grow significantly in the coming years.



Finally, various types of jobs in corporate R&D departments are becoming more numerous over time; this work is often carried out in collaboration with research centers and universities. A substantial number of these projects are financed with European funds from the Framework Programs, one of whose main thematic focuses is the environment.


Finally, the Master's Degree in Biodiversity, Landscape and Sustainable Development constitutes the training period of the Doctoral Degree in Biology and Environment, which is an official program in accordance with RD 1393/2007 and which received a positive evaluation from the National Agency for Assessment of Quality and Accreditation (ANECA).



In view of existing trends, the program emphasizes highly practical, multifaceted, general and interdisciplinary education that facilitates integration into this varied labor market.
