About the profession

Environmental problems in recent decades have become "eternal companions" of the development of modern civilization. The acuteness of these problems is caused by the massive involvement of natural resources in the sphere of economic activity of mankind and the large accumulation of production and consumption wastes. Therefore, such importance is acquired by "Earth Sciences", studying the Earth and its main geospheres, their composition, structure, evolution and properties; geophysical fields, deposits of solid and liquid minerals; studying natural, economic and anthropogenic systems and structures at the global, national, regional and local levels involved in monitoring the state, the development forecast and the environmental impact assessment of all forms of economic activity.

The research part of the program “Ecology: Modern environmental studies” - problems of anthropogenic impact on the environment and human health, biotechnology, waste recycling, development of methods of analysis and technological solutions to prevent pollution and minimize the impact on the surrounding ecosystems
