Careers for environmental managers


Addressing modern environmental issues necessitates drawing knowledge from multiple scientific disciplines. The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Management was first in recognizing the need for interdisciplinary environmental management studies in the higher education system in Israel. Since 1998, we have been training graduate and post-graduate students to become sustainability professionals. Today, our alumni hold key positions in environmental research and management in Israel. We invite you to discover the dynamism and innovative vision of our academic programs and research.
