The specialitie Environmental Management (EGEL) is based on the skills developed in three IUEM research units: LETG (coastal and marine geography), Lemar (biology, chemistry, marine ecology) and Amure (law and economics).
Between 2010 and 2014, 9% of students continued their studies. 70% found a job in the field of coastal environment. Example of positions: project manager (cartographer, generalist of the environment), biologist / scientific diver, project or mission manager (marine environment, fisheries and shellfish farming, marine protected areas, Natura 2000, water development and management scheme, etc.).
Considering the recent proliferation of texts related to the management of the sea and the coastline (Grenelle de la Mer, Marine Strategy Framework Directive, French Maritime Strategy), jobs focused on the sea should be developed in the fields of maritime spatial planning and marine energy. On the coast, issues related to climate change require expertise in the field of coastal risks.
