Course Summary

The aims of the programme include developing the intellectual, practical, and professional skills of students in the critical acquisition, analysis, interpretation and understanding of environmental engineering principles and issues in preparation for: a career in the environmental, consultancy, regulatory, management, and engineering industry; a position of leadership early in that career; further study; life-long learning and an appreciation of the value of Environmental Engineering to a sustainable society. This degree is accredited as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired an Accredited CEng (Partial) BEng(Hons) undergraduate first degree.

The programme provides a suitable background for careers in environmental engineering, monitoring, management and consultancy, and it establishes a basis for interdisciplinary research to a higher level. Past graduates have found employment with a wide range of employers, eg environment regulatory agencies, civil engineering and specialist contractors as well as engineering and environmental consultancies in the UK, Ireland and abroad. Queen's postgraduates reap exceptional benefits. Unique initiatives, such as Degree Plus and Researcher Plus bolster our commitment to employability, while innovative leadership and executive programmes alongside sterling integration with business experts helps our students gain key leadership positions both nationally and internationally.
