Hydrology and Climate Change

This programme provides opportunities for graduates with first degrees in a range of scientific and engineering disciplines to enhance their knowledge of the water environment and its management in the context of climate change, through theoretical, practical and computational (informatics) training. It aims to train a new breed of engineer capable of solving hydrological and water resources problems with the understanding that past hydrological behaviour may no longer be a suitable guide for the future. This training is quantitative and very relevant to the needs of today's water industry.

Entry requirements
