Course content

Flooding affects millions worldwide. It ruins homes, destroys livelihoods and threatens lives.

Our new Flood and Coastal Engineering MSc has been developed with the Environment Agency to maintain and enhance the skills and experience of professionals who can help deliver flood management initiatives to protect communities from flooding.

The course is delivered in partnership with HR Wallingford, a renowned independent civil engineering and environmental hydraulics organisation with expertise in flood risk assessment and management.

On the course you’ll develop your knowledge of structural design, geotechnics and how to manage and mitigate risk against extreme flood events through environmental assessment and strategic management. You’ll also develop your skills in hydraulic modelling, flood estimation and engineering design.

This course is for graduates who typically have studied engineering, mathematics, environmental science, geography or geology and are now looking to become chartered engineers. The course engages students in knowledge, understanding and application of engineering solutions, and is closely aligned to environmental, social and climatic issues affecting our world today.
