Course content

Solve problems in water pollution, sanitation and climate change with environmental science and civil engineering in this MSc Water and Environmental Engineering.

You’ll explore the ways water and environmental systems function, how human activity affects these systems, and – most importantly – how new and existing interventions can be used to reduce and remediate these effects.

You’ll focus on sustainability and environmental technology design, as you work with academics recognised by industry, research funders, and the Research Excellence Framework. Your projects could align to the needs of industrial partners, such as Southern Water, or to ongoing research in University projects such as Revolution Plastics.

While you study, you’ll have access to facilities including the Environmental Technology Field Station and Hydraulics Labs, where you’ll apply current methods to industry-standard technology, and develop the professional skills to secure a role in the water and environmental engineering sector.
