MSc Environmental Technology
The application of scientific knowledge, policy and engineering to solve environmental problems and address sustainability
Our students acquire a diverse range of discipline-specific problem-solving frameworks for tackling contemporary environmental issues. A major emphasis of the course is on the way that environments function and on the compatible tools, alternative technologies and policies for sustainable environmental management. MSc Candidates also learn to appreciate that successful projects depend, at least in part, on belonging to a network of experts aiming to advance personal and collective environmental goals. We emphasise a friendly and supportive learning environment.
The course combines the natural and social sciences in a truly interdisciplinary manner, providing a foundation for graduates to demonstrate their ability to identify and resolve environmental and sustainability issues in a holistic way. The specialist options in the second term are designed to cater for a variety of individual interests and career requirements. In addition to the interdisciplinary course modules, our dedicated teaching staff help students to create strong links with industry, business and regulators, delivering invaluable interaction between scientific/technological training and industrial experience.
