Environmental Chemistry is the science of processes that influence the composition and chemical properties of the environment, proper for habitation. It is concerned with the background, behaviour, movement and impact of chemical compounds in all layers of the environment. It researches the means through which the human factor affects these layers. Environmental Chemistry utilizes knowledge and tools from other sciences in the study of air, water and soil. It addresses issue of contamination and degradation and it aims to exploit theoretical knowledge for creating solutions to the aforementioned problems.
Environmental Toxicology is more focused on the destructive effects of chemical agents on the living organisms of all ecosystems. Empowering the knowledge provided by biology, computer science, math and chemistry, it sets out to understand and prevent harmful impact caused by toxic agents.
Nanotechnology is an emerging field of science and technology related to materials and device structures with critical dimensions in the nanometre regime. The nanotechnology employment market is expected to grow significantly. Although few companies currently view themselves as pure nanotechnology companies, nanotechnology is penetrating a number of technology areas and related industries.
Master's Degree Programme (MDP) in Environmental Biology (EnvBio) is designed to give the higher university degree (MSc) to students who already have accomplished the lower university degree (BSc)
The master’s programme provides excellent basis for post-graduate studies. The master’s programme requires full time studies for a Master of Science degree in two years.
The master programme Chemical Engineering for Energy and the Environment will give you efficient engineering tools to help in solving future challenges on how to best use our energy- and natural resources.
You will develop advanced laboratory research skills to progress your career in the field of toxicology. We'll enhance your understanding of the interaction of toxins with molecular targets, target organ toxicity, and the role of the immune system in the response to toxins.
Toxicology and environmental science are applied sciences which are based on basic sciences like chemistryWe provide an international master's degree programme where students, after common basic studies in toxicology and environmental science can specialize either in general toxicology including toxicological risk assessment or environmental health risk assessment with special emphasis on exposure assessment., biology, physiology and physics
The combined talents and expertise of physicists and chemists are the key to success in the field of condensed matter and nanomaterials science, which is the focus of this programme.
Toxicology relates to many aspects of our everyday activities, so a career in this field promises to provide a variety of opportunities aimed at improving the standard of life and the environment.
The Master Programme in Biology provides you with a first-class education with considerable freedom to create your own profile. The broad range of courses from evolutionary biology, biodiversity and environmental toxicology to immunology and infection biology enables you to obtain the required subject depth and improve your personal competitiveness in the job market.
The utility sector in England and Wales has physical assets worth £280 billion which are used to deliver £10 billion revenue each year. This creates an essential requirement for professionals with formalised qualifications in asset management in the utility sector (water, power and waste), who are able to effectively operate, monitor, manage and replace assets and infrastructure of fundamental importance to the successful function of a nation. Graduates of this course are equipped with the knowledge and skills for detailed decision making on the management of a complex and sizeable asset base such as those found within utilities, including asset care, use and end-of-life decisions. Students work within Cranfield's Water Science Institute, the UK's largest water-focused postgraduate group. Facilities available to students include the sewage treatment works and pilot plant hall, a grey water treatment facility, and microbiology and clean water laboratories.
Taught by internationally-recognised researchers in the field who offer valuable insight into the subject, this course is particularly suited for graduates with engineering or science related degrees. Completion of the programme will provide you with an extensive skill set and open numerous employment opportunities within industry and academia.
Toxicology and Risk Assessment Masters course caters for the current global need for toxicologists and ecotoxicologists who are competent in conducting hazard and risk evaluation of chemical substances.
