Clean Technology

The Clean Technology MSc/PGDip aims to train the Environmental Sustainability Managers of the future. With a focus on industry and commerce, we look at how companies interact with the environment through the raw materials and utilities they use, the products and services they provide, and their impact on the environment and society. Based in the School of Chemical Engineering and Advanced Materials the course covers a wide field of disciplines and should appeal to any engineer, pure or applied scientist. A key feature of the course is the involvement of industry and the opportunity to carry out a project based at a local company.
