Course content

This programme is designed for engineering graduates wishing to enhance their capabilities in urban water design, operation and management, or engineers working in the water industry looking to enhance their knowledge and skills in this area.

It draws upon the expertise of our Centre for Water Systems, which is internationally renowned for its research into water supply and distribution systems, waste water and urban drainage systems, integrated modelling, risk and uncertainty, whole-life costing, water efficiency, catchment-based management, spatial water management, and associated areas.

The programme is highly relevant to the needs of future water engineers and will provide you with knowledge and key skills in the broad area of urban water engineering and management, equipping you to solve modern day engineering problems.

Water engineering is of significant global interest and highly trained graduates are highly sought after. Graduates can expect to take on exciting roles in consultancies, water utilities, contractors, regulatory bodies, government agencies, and international organisations following successful completion of the programme.
