Course Summary

This course provides consultants, operators, regulators and managers with the professional skills and training to contribute to the provision of environmentally sound and economically sustainable systems in the fields of clean water supply, wastewater treatment, and the management of solid waste, including wastes from the oil industry. It is intended for those who find themselves in management positions with little experience of the techniques necessary to manage the range of projects for which they have responsibilities, or people with a background in management who feel they lack up-to-date technical knowledge in the rapidly changing field of environmental engineering.

You’ll build your knowledge of key issues such as water resource, solid waste or health management. Taught by experts in a research-intensive environment, you’ll gain an insight into the latest developments in this exciting field and prepare to meet the challenges they bring. You’ll study a broad programme informed by an employers’ group and our Industrial Advisory Board, ensuring that we equip you with the skills you need in the modern engineering industry. You’ll also benefit from using our specialist facilities, such as our public health labs with separate areas for solid waste, water and wastewater, and a class II microbiology lab and clean room. We have all the specialist software you’ll need for your programme, and you’ll have access to a dedicated study suite for masters students.

Entry requirements

Students need a bachelor degree in engineering or a science-based subject. We will also consider applicants with equivalent academic or professional qualifications in engineering or a natural science. Given the broad range of skills needed by professionals in these fields, graduates from other disciplines, such as architecture or economics, will also be considered if they have a proven track record of work. If a candidate has at least two years’ relevant experience, a bachelor degree with a 2:2 (hons) will usually be considered. All applicants will need to have GCSE English Language at grade C or above, or an appropriate English language qualification. We accept a range of international equivalent qualifications.
