Description

Advertisement

Governments, industry and society, in all countries, are increasingly aware of the importance of securing sustainable development through cost-effective pollution controls and resource conservation. As a result, there is a growing need, internationally, for suitably qualified personnel in the environmental authorities of central and local government, industry and commerce, consultancy and research. Moreover, the resulting legal requirements on the part of governments and industry to conform to national and international agreements and regulations means that such demand will remain even during periods of economic austerity and retrenchment.

Employers are increasingly requiring environmental science graduates to have a strong grounding in the quantitative and qualitative skills required to address environmental questions in additional to subject-specific knowledge and understanding. This programme addresses these requirements through a core of skills-based modules with the emphasis on synthesis.

This research focused Masters course consists of a core taught component and two research projects, with the option to undertake one project placement in industry.

Contents

The overall aim of the programme is to prepare students for continuing research in academia and industry - including environmental consultancy - aimed at understanding and addressing research questions relating to how organisms interact with the environment, and respond to natural and anthropogenic-induced change through the application of advanced methods and approaches.

Special features
* Opportunity to undertake an industrial placement
* Opportunity to swop onto the related course - Pollution and Environmental Control MSc

Module details
The programme is divided into three parts:

* 60 credits of Core taught course units running from October to May
* 60 credit Research Project 1 carried out part time from October to January
* 60 credit Research Project 2 carried out from April to end of September

For full details on modules see: Course Structure and Modules
