This Masters programme is designed to help you become a competent environmental engineer and manager. It will give you a sound knowledge of fundamental engineering and scientific principles, together with the ability to apply these to design, construction, assessment, analysis, operation and management.
The programme has two principal aims. First, to equip you with the necessary competencies and skills to analyse, assess and manage all principal aspects within the fields of water, energy and the environment. Second, to give you the professional skills, knowledge and experience to both meet the current demands of industry and influence possible future trends.
As a student on this programme you will acquire the necessary techniques to analyse and solve environmental problems. You will critically evaluate the environmental impact of human activities and demonstrate knowledge of national and international environmental policy and regulation. In addition, you will gain the ability to critically evaluate design and operations and use appropriate mathematical models for environmental modelling and assessment.
Students who choose the two year MSc route will undertake a Group Design Project & Dissertation.
The Group Design Project aims to apply civil engineering skills, practical experience, technology and scientific knowledge to a real-world design problem. Detailed ideas will be explored and developed through design, experimentation and/or computer modelling.
Why should I choose the 2 year route?
The Group Design Project will encompass the wider aspects of social, economic, political, legislative, environmental, cultural, ethical and sustainability issues required in the modern environment.
This route will equip you with the transferrable project management skills needed to excel in your chosen career.
You will work in groups and meet regularly with an academic supervisor and any internal or external stakeholders in order to develop an effective team-working ethic.
You will present your work through regular meetings with your supervisor as well as submitting progress reports and oral presentations. In this way you will have the chance to hone your communicative skills and leave University ready for the workplace.
