Course content

The Clean Technology MSc/PGDip aims to train the Environmental Sustainability Managers of the future. With a focus on industry and commerce, we look at how companies interact with the environment through the raw materials and utilities they use, the products and services they provide, and their impact on the environment and society.

Based in the School of Chemical Engineering and Advanced Materials the course covers a wide field of disciplines and should appeal to any engineer, pure or applied scientist.

A key feature of the course is the involvement of industry and the opportunity to carry out a project based at a local company. This experience is a valuable addition to your CV and has resulted in excellent job opportunities. The use of real life case studies involving group work and role play underpins the course.

You will hear about job opportunities from our Careers Service as well as our extensive network of alumni. The course is broad which makes a variety of career options available.
