About

In this Applied Freshwater and Marine Biology programme at Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology you will be studying an exciting mix of subjects including Marine Biology, studies of rivers and lakes, ecology and zoology. 

Overview

Year one in this Applied Freshwater and Marine Biology programme at Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology involves the study of a range of Science modules and year two focuses on Biology - the science of life. Biologists explore and learn how organisms are constructed and how they function. This involves the study of reproduction, growth and development and how organisms capture and use raw materials and energy.

Year three covers areas such as fisheries, pollution control, the environment and aquatic biology where the main activity entails the monitoring of the aquatic environment.

Career Opportunities

There are numerous employment opportunities in environmental protection, aquaculture, education and industry. Opportunities in environmental management and protection are increasing dramatically with the implementation of EU environmental directives and the current awareness of ‘green’ issues.
