What is Technosphere Safety?
Briefly, Technosphere Safety exists to protect the environment from the human impact.
The modern era is characterized by rapid industrial development and as a result, manufacturing plants widely interact with the natural environment. People have been facing environmental issues, and the more humanity has developed, the bigger has negative impact been on the environment.
As the level of urbanization rises every year, the amount of waste, energy and resource consumption, emissions, discharges, electromagnetic, radioactive pollution and the total environmental burden increase too.
High population growth rates, a huge increase in consumption, a sharp increase in the demand for energy resources, intensive development of industrial and agricultural production lead to the emergence of permanent foci of heavy pollution of the biosphere with global irreversible effect.
In this regard, the "Technosphere Safety" program is becoming increasingly relevant and popular on the market of educational services.

International internships and training
The "Technosphere Safety" program is co-implemented with partners from Finland, Great Britain, Norway. The best students take part in such projects as:
- Volunteer environmental movement that provides prompt assistance in eliminating the consequences of large-scale oil spills (Finland);
- The "Green Is Great: freshening up ideas for water use" project (Great Britain).
The best final year students have the opportunity to participate in the double degree program at the Lappeenranta University of Technology LUT (Finland). When a student graduates from the university, he receives certificates and diplomas of the European standard.
Your future career
Graduates can work as environmental specialists, environmental engineers, fire safety and labor protection specialists, expert and supervisory organization specialists, auditors.The list of career options for graduates of the "Technosphere Safety" program is far from complete.
