Water, Waste and Environmental Engineering

This degree is designed for students who wish to practice across a broad range of environmental engineering and apply new sustainable risk management strategies for complex environmental problems. Water, waste and environmental engineering has been traditionally referred to as public health engineering in the United Kingdom. In this course, the technical aspects of both natural and engineering environmental systems will be covered. There will be broad interdisciplinary subjects synthesizing knowledge from a wide spectrum of science and engineering, expanding the content of public health engineering, which in the UK has traditionally been responsible for developing the infrastructure for managing water and waste. Students will develop engineering skills and be able to design, develop and apply concepts for water and waste as a resource based on environmental sensitivity and be competent in planning, modelling, design, construction, operations, maintenance and control of both engineered and natural water and earth resources.

Entry requirements

MSc: A recognised bachelor's degree 2.2 or above in engineering (civil, chemical, mechanical, environmental, industrial and agricultural) and/or natural and physical sciences or an equivalent qualification. Students without a first degree, but with professional and vocational experience (e.g. incorporated engineer, chartered scientist or chartered environmentalist status) may be considered if they demonstrate the potential to succeed on the programme. Students educated in a language other than English should have an IELTS score of 6.0 (with a minimum of 5.5 in each skill) or equivalent.

Course modules

Compulsory modules: Environmental engineering and sustainability; hydrosystems engineering and management; individual research project for civil and environmental engineering; information technologies for environmental engineering; research, planning and communication; waste management and remediation technology; desalination and water reuse; water and sanitation for developing countries; water and wastewater engineering.

Assessment methods

Project work, assignments and laboratory exercises in addition to substantial written examination of course materials will occur in most modules. The Environmental Engineering Research Project will require submission of a substantial final report/dissertation. Assessment of this module will involve participation in a poster and seminar presentation and a final oral examination.
