Cranfield University | Bedford, United Kingdom
The UK has recognised a national shortage of engineers and scientists, especially in the energy, environment, transport and education sectors, leading to the loss of billions of pounds for the economy. In response to this growing demand and with the current focus on environmental issues, graduates of this course can expect to be highly sought after by employers.

Description of Environmental Engineering PgDip/PgCert

The MSc in Environmental Engineering is designed to equip students with a set of knowledge and skills which will enable them to solve a wide-range of environmental engineering challenges. The course covers municipal and toxic waste management, process emissions, contaminated land and water and waste disposal. The programme also addresses energy and resource recovery from waste materials.

Cranfield has a well established reputation for its applied research in environmental subjects. The University is home to the Cranfield Water Science Institute, the largest postgraduate group specialising in the engineering and management of water in municipal, industrial and natural environments, and the £3.5m Risk Centre, a specialist Centre for research and education in strategic environmental risk appraisal, supported by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).

The MSc course comprises eight assessed modules, an integrated group project and an individual project. Students undertaking the Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) complete the eight modules and the group project. Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) students are required to complete six of the eight modules.

Course Content

The group project experience is highly valued by both students and prospective employers. It provides students with the opportunity to take responsibility for a consultancy-type project, working within agreed objectives, deadlines and budgets. For part-time students a dissertation or projects portfolio can replace the group project.

The individual thesis project, usually in collaboration with an external organisation, offers students the opportunity to develop their research capability and understanding of the subject and their ability to provide solutions to real problems in environmental engineering.

Modules

The modules include lectures and tutorials, and are assessed through examinations and assignments. There is an emphasis on analysis of real problems.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
