Course Summary

This MSc provides the knowledge and skills to equip you for a career in either environmental engineering or environmental science. This course is closely aligned with industry demands, this course meets the needs of: urban regeneration, environmental protection, infrastructure investment portfolios in Scotland and worldwide A distinctive feature of this course is its highly topical nature. Glasgow has been undergoing extensive urban regeneration. This included building on land that's been contaminated in the past. You’ll have challenging 'real world' issues to study close to the University. From this experience, you'll become able to translate the principles of environmental engineering that you have learned into national and international context.

This is initially a non-graduating route. You'll register for one 10 credit class at a time, and have the option to build up credits. This will eventually lead to a Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or MSc. You can take up to five years to achieve the qualification. The career prospects of graduates are excellent due to the significant skills shortages in the environmental engineering field both in the UK and overseas. Graduates of the MSc in Environmental Engineering are widely scattered internationally in environmentally related jobs – including a large number of environmental and engineering consultancies, industry, local government and national and international regulatory agencies.
