The Nature Protection Faculty

According to ‘the Concept on Development of Odessa State Environmental University for the period of 2003-2007’ of 6 February 2006, it was decided to reorganize the structure of OSENU. The aim was to improve the teaching and professional training of students of the university. Three faculties were organized on the base of the Environmental Faculty and the Faculty of Computer Sciences and Management; they are: the Nature Protection Faculty, the Faculty of Environmental Science and Economics, the Faculty of Computer Science; besides, a new speciality of Water Bioresources was launched in 2006.

The faculty has 5 doctors of sciences, 21 candidate of sciences. All of them have a great experience in scientific, research and practical work. Together they form a mighty and variable scientific potential which helps to develop OSENU and qualitative training of students and scientific research.

Today the faculty trains specialists on Bachelor and Master degrees in the field of ‘Water Bioresources and Aquaculture’ (speciality of ‘Water Bioresources’), ‘Environmental Science, Environmental Control and Sustainable Nature Management’ (specialities of ‘Environmental Science and Environmental Control’, ‘Environmental Safety’, ‘Applied Environmental Science and Sustainable Nature Management’, ‘Radioecology’).

In the course of training and practices on the specialized laboratories of departments, hydroeclogical scientific training laboratory of the university in Maiaky (at the Dniester River) and also in the institutions and inspections of the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine the students successfully gain their practical skills.

The training for all the specialities in MSc, PhD and doctoral studies are held in full-time and distance learning modes, and there also organized practical studies.

The disciplines taught at the department are fully provided with study guides and electronic versions of lectures. The work on elaboration of interactive ways of learning is being held too.

The active scientific work is being conducted at the faculty. The teachers and students take part in different scientific conferences. The research subjects are closely related to scientific areas of departments of the faculty.

Annually the International Scientific Conference of students, undergraduates and aspirants Environmental Quality State of Some Regions under the supervision of the ecology and environmental protection department is held. Various scientific hearings and contests are carried out at the departments. The scientific circles and seminars work at the departments; the teachers strive to ensure students to take part in public, sports and culture life of the university. Much attention is paid to the education process.
