University of Sheffield
This programme offers training in sustainable urban development and environmental management. And the chance to carry out research of your own. This is the basic structure: September-June: taught modules and preparation for your dissertation. June-August: complete your dissertation. The first semester gives you a grounding in the relevant engineering science: hydrology, hydraulics, hydrogeology and modelling methods. In the second semester, you�ll apply that knowledge to a series of topics, including: urban drainage, groundwater remediation and open channel flow. Your research dissertation gives you the opportunity to work with an academic on a piece of research in a subdiscipline.
Minimum 2.1 Honours degree in a relevant subject. English language requirements: overall IELTS grade of 6.5 with a minimum of 6.0 in each component, or equivalent.
Core modules: engineering hydrology; advanced hydraulics; hydrogeology and research skills; water quality; computational methods for water engineering. Optional modules: pollutant fate and transport in the subsurface; coastal engineering; suds and green infrastructure; risk and extreme events; river mechanics; water and sewer network design; remediation of groundwater pollution.
Assessment is by formal examinations, coursework assignments and a dissertation with oral examination. For environment courses, you�ll also take class and practical tests.
