Course content

This course blends theory and practice to equip you with the skills you need to work in the environment and energy sectors. You’ll be taught by experts and can tailor the course to suit your needs.

Course description

Going green is more than just a fashionable phase. In a world of finite resources going through a population explosion, much effort is being made to change the way in which developed societies consume energy and materials and dispose of waste.

This MSc was born from the necessity for the next generation of engineers and scientists to be aware of the issues surrounding this sensitive and often controversial field.

You’ll be taught by staff that are actively involved with and working in this field. You’ll become a member of a leading, research active department and part of one of the largest and most successful engineering facilities in the UK.

You’ll earn a degree that commands respect nationally and internationally from industry and academia alike.


We are currently working towards re-accreditation of Environmental and Energy Engineering by the Institution of Chemical Engineers for 2023-24 entry.
