Course content

This degree is accredited as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired an Accredited CEng (Partial) BEng (Hons) undergraduate first degree.

This course has a start date in September

This course is aimed at geography and science graduates, industrial practitioners, military and government personnel.

Through an intensive practical and theoretical programme, we aim to develop your expertise and depth of understanding, and to formalise any practical experience in the areas of environmental management and earth observation.

Data collection and integration are fundamental to environmental management; technological advances enable us to gather an increasing amount of information from terrestrial measurements, airborne sensors and satellite based systems. Some techniques enable continuous monitoring and some allow rapid processing from regular data gathering campaigns. Underpinning all of this is the need for an understanding of co-ordinate systems, positioning techniques and geographical information systems.

The course is also accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and we are an Approved Learning Provider for the HM Forces Enhanced Learning Credit Scheme, which applies to this course.
