Why choose this course

There is a global shortage of qualified civil engineers who specialise in water and environmental engineering. Our MSc in Water and Environmental Engineering will transform you into an expert on water and environmental sustainability, ready to tackle the industry’s complex challenges.

Our fully accredited MSc course from our Centre for Environmental and Health Engineering (CEHE) is highly popular and relevant to the needs of future engineers, scientists and professionals in environmental health, water, pollution control, waste management and other sectors.

What you will study

Our MSc in Water and Environmental Engineering attracts UK and international graduates who wish to take advantage of the global interest in water, wastewater, sanitation and waste to develop their careers.

Our course will provide you with a comprehensive and robust understanding of the core areas of water and environmental engineering. It will give you the skills you need to explore, critically assess and evaluate problems and produce systematic and coherent solutions. You will do this while integrating core engineering science with practical applications both independently and within a team.

You will also develop an understanding of how this knowledge can be articulated around sustainable development practices.

This course will prepare you for a successful career in the field including, where appropriate, progression to Chartered Engineer status.
