AIT offers new certificate degree programme on sustainable Asian aquaculture
Starting August, the Bangkok-based Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) will offer a new, one-semester certificate programme on Sustainable Asian Aquaculture under its Aquaculture and Aquatic Resources Management (AARM) academic programme of the institute's School of Environment, Resources and Development.
This certificate programme is a combination of course work and hands-on experience in specialised areas (fish/shrimp hatchery or farming). It includes three months of practical experience on Asian aquaculture. It is useful for both students (with credit transfer) and working professionals and entrepreneurs (without credits).
For students, the AIT entry qualifications for master's programmes will apply. The certificate can lead to a master's degree. For professionals, the entry requirements are flexible. There is the option to avail themselves of either the course work or hands-on experience alone as separate modules.
If you opt to take either the course work or hand-on experience only, the course fee is US$3,600, for the duration of three months.
For the certificate degree, with a duration of six months, the course fee is $6,600.
A panel of world-renowned experts will handle the topics in this programme, which is now open for enrollment. Applications will be accepted until June 30.
