This course focuses on the principles, processes and techniques of environmental auditing and management systems (e.g. ISO 14001). A highlight of the course requires the students to conduct, in a team setting, an on-campus environmental audit, which includes a formal presentation of findings and a final audit report. Concepts of environmental monitoring, environmental risk assessment and occupational health and safety are also addressed through lectures, class discussions, demonstrations and assignments.
