Water Resources Management
Water scientists and engineers are vital for the conservation and enhancement of our aquatic environment, both locally and globally. Our MSc will develop your ability to accurately assess the potential and existing impacts on the water environment from industrial practices, abstraction and agriculture. You will focus on developing the professional skills you will require for a rewarding career as a water focused environmental scientist.
MSc: An upper second-class honours degree or equivalent in Environmental Sciences, Geography, Zoology, Oceanography, Biology, Geology or Physics.
Compulsory modules include: Freshwater Ecosystems; Environmental Pollution; MSc Research Project; Advanced Quantitative Methods. Optional modules include: Geographical Information Systems for Environmental Consultants; Sustainable Resource Management; Environmental Law and Management; Environmental Management Systems; Coastal Flood Defence; River Basin Management; Coastal and Maritime Engineering and Energy; Coastal Morphodynamics; Waste Resource Management; Water and Wastewater Engineering.
Knowledge is assessed throughout the course through a combination of formative methods (to provide you with constructive feedback to help you develop your skills and understanding) and summative methods (to assess your performance). Formative assessment takes the form of feedback on essays, reports, presentations and the research project, and is stressed from the beginning of the course. Formative assessment is delivered in part through informal assessment of work that does not contribute directly to your results (e.g. class debriefings on oral presentations). Summative assessment takes the form of unseen and open-book examinations and tests, presentations, project work and coursework.
