University of Bristol
Water and Environmental Management
This programme provides the skills and knowledge required for a career in water and environmental management. You will acquire academic and practical skills, as well as developing a detailed knowledge of fundamental environmental processes, and the ways in which these need to be managed sustainably. A considerable part of the programme is taught by leading practitioners including personnel from the Environment Agency of England and Wales, and Defra (UK Department of Food and Rural Affairs). The units aim to provide you with research, mathematics and computing skills, together with a firm understanding of fundamental processes that govern water movement through the atmosphere, atmosphere-biosphere interactions, and water flows through river catchments. The stage concludes by exploring how this fundamental understanding leads to environmental management, policy and legislation at local, national and international levels.
An upper 2nd Class Honours degree in a relevant subject (or equivalent professional qualification). Candidates may also become members of the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM).
Core modules: research skills; environmental management, policy and regulation; terrestrial hydrometeorology; surface and groundwater hydrology; introduction to environmental statistics using MATLAB; numerical analysis using MATLAB; plus 2 from; integrated catchment management; water resources engineering; dissertation.
