Course Summary

This Master's degree is designed for students who wish to practice across a broad range environmental engineering and apply new sustainable risk management strategies for complex environmental problems. Water, waste and environmental engineering has been traditionally referred to as public health engineering in the United Kingdom. The aims of the programme are to: show you how to design, implement and manage sustainable, risk-reduced eco-friendly solutions for reducing the environmental impact of exploitation of earth's resources in the context of environmental engineering-related issues facing global societies; provide you with the skills to further your careers in these areas; support you in understanding the innovative and pioneering approaches in this field and to be able to apply them to the solution of real-world problems in developing novel industrially-relevant solutions.

The Environmental Engineering Research Project will require submission of a substantial final report/dissertation. Assessment of this module will involve participation in a poster and seminar presentation and a final oral examination. Postgraduate students from this programme will find such employment opportunities as engineers, scientist and technical managers in the private sector (engineering design firms, engineering consultancy, project management, risk management and waste management), in the public sector (environmental protection engineering, regulations and standards, local government) and in non-governmental sectors (NGOs, environmental advocacy) or may wish to pursue further qualifications such as a PhD within the Faculty of Engineering and Science at the University of Greenwich to become even more specialised.

Modules

This module aims at exposing engineering students of diverse background specialisms to a wide range of environmental issues and challenges. Drawing on basic science and engineering principles it enables students to assess specific environmental problems and design solutions that reduce or eliminate their global and local environmental impacts at conceptual and practical levels. It will therefore enable the engineering students to experience a number of different environmental threats, risks and issues and help them develop practical and commercially viable solutions to a wide range of environmental engineering subjects.
