Environmental & Natural Resource Management B.Tech.

Planning for a sustainable environment.

With the growing challenges to our natural environment come rising opportunities to protect it and supply our needs in a sustainable way. 

If you value our natural resources and want to help sustain them, you’ll find the training to do so in SUNY Morrisville’s Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) degree program in environmental & natural resource management.

You can transfer into the program with an associate degree in the field, such as SUNY Morrisville’s Associate in Science (A.S.) degree in environmental conservation science or our Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degrees in natural resources conservation or aquaculture & aquatic science.

Along with a strong curriculum that blends the planning and adaptive management of renewable resources with business and communications courses, the program’s unique 15-credit, 600-hour internship requirement provides you with invaluable experience and professional contacts, and enhances your résumé.

When you graduate, you’ll be prepared for jobs in planning and managing in natural resources conservation, soil and water conservation, environmental science, environmental technology, wetland management and aquaculture & aquatic science.

Enhance your college experience through the Outdoor Recreation Club (ORC), which provides a variety of fun and adventurous outdoor recreational activities.
