Course Summary

This course aims to train the Environmental Sustainability Managers of the future. With a focus on industry and commerce, we look at how companies interact with the environment through the raw materials and utilities they use, the products and services they provide, and their impact on the environment and society.

Based in the School of Engineering the course covers a wide field of disciplines and should appeal to any engineer, pure or applied scientist. A key feature of the course is the involvement of industry and the opportunity to carry out a project based at a local company. This experience is a valuable addition to your CV and has resulted in excellent job opportunities. The use of real life case studies involving group work and role play underpins the course. You will hear about job opportunities from our Careers Service as well as our extensive network of alumni. The course is broad which makes a variety of career options available.

Examples of roles our recent graduates are now working in include: Energy Manager; Environmental Manager; Waste Manager; Health and Safety Managers (public and private sector); Sustainability Manager (in industry, public sector, health service, councils, police and universities) and Officers for the Environment Agency (in areas such as waste, permitting, ecology, air quality). Students will also achieve PgDip awards during this course.

This module introduces the basic principles of materials science and how these are modified when materials have nanometre scale or internal nanostructure. It highlights the benefits and new properties which can be obtained from nano-sized and nano-structured materials where the surface area to volume ratio is very high. The module introduces microstructure-property relationships in contemporary materials illustrating the advantages that can be achieved by the use of nanomaterials in a range of typical applications.
