Abertay University

Environment

The Environment theme at Abertay University combines research in environmental science and engineering, food and biological sciences to deliver the solutions needed to address contemporary global environmental challenges. We combine fundamental and industry-focussed research fuelled by interactions between discipline experts, experimentalists and theoreticians. New ways of thinking, notably in the emerging disciplines of computer games technology, the interface between life and physical sciences, and emergent behaviour of complex systems, are interlinked across disciplines. The Environment theme draws from expertise of individual research leaders and researchers in our established research and knowledge exchange centres: Scottish Informatics Mathematics Biology and Statistics (SIMBIOS) Centre, Urban Water Technology (UWTC) Centre, Sustainability Assessment Visualisation and Enhancement (SAVE), and Food and Innovation @ Abertay (FIA).

Entry requirements

2.1 Honours degree (or equivalent) at undergraduate level in an appropriate discipline but in most cases, especially for overseas applicants, a Master's degree is preferred. In some cases appropriate professional or experiential learning may be considered in combination with a lower classification of Honours degree. Applicants whose 1st language is not English should have an IELTS score of 6.5 (with no subject less than 6.5) for all research degrees (MbR, MPhil, PhD). Another UKBA acceptable English language qualification at the same level may be accepted.
