As a result, Environmental Engineers face the challenge of managing a wide range of problems including toxic waste, air pollution, contaminated land, contaminated water, waste disposal and global warming.

A high level of resource management is demanded, requiring innovation in improvements to manufacturing processes and in the utilisation of natural resources. The collection, treatment and recycling of solid, liquid and gaseous waste streams from industrial and municipal sources are also essential elements in the protection of the environment. Meanwhile the worldwide problems of climate protection call for even greater innovation and efficiency in finding solutions on all scales from local to global.

The rising interest in and recognition of the need for Environmental Protection has resulted in a substantial increase in the number of Environmental Engineering projects being undertaken throughout the world. This has generated a growing demand for good quality Environmental Engineers equipped with the knowledge, skills and expertise to design and implement effective solutions in a broad range of situations.

In response to this growing demand, the MSc in Environmental Engineering has been designed to suit Engineering graduates who are seeking a formal qualification that will equip them to work in and contribute to this fast developing field.

Course Content

The course content is planned to enable you, the engineer, to work across the interface between Engineering and the Environment, harmonising the responsibility and statutory requirements for environmental protection with the needs of a modern industrial society by assessing and managing the effects of natural and human activity on the natural and built environments.

To achieve this effectively requires a sound understanding of the technology and its application, together with an appreciation of the economic, legal, social and ethical aspects of the problems. All of these issues are addressed in the taught component of the course.

Over the summer period towards the end of the course, you will complete a dissertation / project on a subject of your choice. This is an opportunity to complete a major piece of independent research under the guidance of a suitable supervisor.

Many of the projects undertaken on this course attract industrial sponsorship and reflect the requirements of industry. Projects give you the opportunity to develop vital skills in research, project management, problem solving and reporting.

Course Structure
The MSc in Environmental Engineering is taught on a full-time basis over one year, commencing in October.

You will need to complete a total of 180 credits to pass the course - 120 credits´ worth of taught modules and a 60-credit dissertation.

The course utilises an integrated educational approach in which lectures, example classes, laboratories and information technology form key elements.
