Description

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.

Contents

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.

Requirements

Minimum entry requirements

You will need:

  • a UK first or second class Honours degree in a relevant subject area or
  • an equivalent international qualification (find out whether your qualification meets requirements by visiting the International Student page) or
  • relevant work experience in combination with a degree below second class Honours

If you do not meet the formal entry requirements, but still feel you can demonstrate the ability to complete the course successfully, you may still be accepted onto a course. Each application will be considered on its merits.

English language requirements

If you are an international student you will need to provide evidence that you have achieved a satisfactory test result in an English qualification. The minimum standard expected from a number of accepted courses are as follows:

  • Pearson PTE Academic - 65
  • Cambridge English Scale - 180
  • Cambridge English: Proficiency – C

English Language Requirements

IELTS band: 6.5
CAE score: (read more)

Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) is part of the Cambridge English suite and is targeted at a high level (IELTS 6.5-8.0). It is an international English language exam set at the right level for academic and professional success. Developed by Cambridge English Language Assessment - part of the University of Cambridge - it helps you stand out from the crowd as a high achiever.

180 (Grade C)
TOEFL iBT® test: 92

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.
