Conservation Technology – or simply the application of technology to environmental management challenges is a new and emerging field, one that will be critical to a sustainable future. These technologies include things like wildlife camera traps, satellite remote sensing, geographic information systems, eDNA, artificial intelligence, internet of things, mobile apps, and many more! Conservation technology is already playing a crucial role in the conservation and environmental management worlds, but to date, there are no undergraduate programs that comprehensively train students to be conservation technologists. YOU will be the first students to take this journey!
The Major in Conservation Technology, B.S. will help students understand what conservation technology is, how it can be used to address big environmental issues, and how it translates into professional employment. Students will be able to gain hands-on experience using different conservation technologies in the field and laboratory and will develop in-demand skills.
High School/College Early
Introduction to Conservation Technology will introduce students to cutting edge technologies in the conservation & environmental science fields.
