The growth and development of urban communities, the creation and expansion of road and railway structures, the intensification of agricultural and industrial production boosted by advances in technology, in addition to spatial development plans on a national, regional and local level involve the availability of staff that are capable of anticipating and resolving complex environmental issues, that possess an adequate, interdisciplinary and updated knowledge that enables them to manage the various resources and exercise their profession in a society that is undergoing rapid technological changes. This training complies with the basic objectives of the course in Environment, taught at ULHT. In addition to theoretical preparation, laboratory training is provided with an equivalent rigor and for this reason, UHLT has duly equipped laboratories in the fields of fundamental training and complementary applied training. The agreements and protocols established with other public and private institutions, and other institutions of higher education, municipalities and businesses are also key tools for the development of research, development and innovation.
