Description

Advertisement

Suitable for graduate scientists and engineers concerned with the protection and enhancement of human life through the improvement and protection of environmental quality at both local and global scales.

Takes you on to a wide range of careers as professional scientists and engineers in the environment sector.

You will be taught by industry-active research academics at Cranfield with an established track record, supported by visiting lecturers from industry. To ensure the programme is aligned to industry needs, the course is directed by its own Industrial Advisory Committee.

Course description

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.

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 Centre for Water Science, 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).

Students will benefit from dedicated state-of-the-art facilities including soil and water laboratories. We also have access to major waste management operations in the region.

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.

Group project

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.

Individual thesis 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.

* Land Engineering and Water Management
* Pollution Prevention and Remediation Technologies
* Process Emissions and Control
* Process Science and Engineering
* Risk Management and Reliability Engineering
* Soil Erosion Control for Catchment Management
