Overview


Waste management is comparatively new as a discipline. In the last century, we have witnessed the evolution of waste management regulation, largely driven by European directives. Waste management is changing and this course has been designed with modern and future waste agendas in mind.

The course will:

•Provide postgraduates with advanced technical and professional knowledge in waste technology and management
•Develop an advanced theoretical and specialist understanding of processes and practices central to integrated waste management
•Assess waste production, composition, characterization and treatment options for waste acceptance
•Select and apply appropriate existing and emerging technologies that can achieve lower waste production and landfill diversion via an integrated and cross-disciplinary approach to sustainable waste management
•Enable the application of scientific, technical and engineering principles, economic consequences and risks of waste management options as best practice

Structure


The course comprises eight assessed modules, a group project and an individual research project.

The modules include lectures and tutorials, and are assessed through practical work, written examinations, case studies, essays, presentations and tests. These provide the 'tools' required for the group and individual projects.

Core Modules


Environmental Risks - Hazard, Assessment and Management
Waste Disposal and Resource Recovery
Waste Treatment Processes
Modelling Environmental Processes
Evaluating Sustainability
Process Emissions and Control
Environmental Regulation in Practice
Pollution Prevention and Remediation Technologies

Individual Project


A key benefit of the Cranfield MSc is that individual projects are often backed by leading organisations. This means you have the opportunity to develop solutions to real problems - either undertaking the project within the company or working here at Cranfield, using the University's equipment and facilities.

Group Project


The group project is a multi-disciplinary, team-based activity. It provides students with the opportunity, whilst working in teams under academic supervision, to take responsibility for project tasks, with success dependent on the integration of various activities. Many projects are industrially orientated with support from industry and other external organisations.

Students on the MSc Waste and Resource Management compete for a series of trophies and prizes presented by leading organisations associated with Cranfield University.
