Why this course?

We've very strong industrial links and an active Industrial Advisory Board which contributes to curriculum design and the overall student experience.

This one-year research-led MRes in geo-environmental engineering is suitable if you're looking for an alternative to an MSc or are interested in carrying out shorter research projects and wish to tailor your studies to suit your own research interests and career objectives. The MRes is suitable for students interested in Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).

An MRes takes one year full-time or two years part-time to complete. Part-time study is only available to UK students.

You’ll study

This degree combines a number of subjects including:

  • geotechnics
  • microbiology
  • chemistry
  • hydrogeology

You'll complete six taught modules. Four classes are compulsory and you then choose two optional.

MRes thesis

You can choose from a wide range of topics. Supervisors will be chosen from one of our seven main research groups:

Facilities

Our department’s £6M purpose-built and state-of-the-art research laboratories opened in June 2013. These facilities include:

  • Geomechanics Laboratory
  • Environmental Chemistry Laboratory
  • Microbiology Laboratory
  • Structures Laboratory
  • Numerical Modelling of Geomaterials
  • Field Investigation Capabilities

Teaching staff

The course is unique in Scotland and the UK, as you'll be taught by a group of professionally qualified civil engineers, chemists, microbiologists and geoscientists.

Learning & teaching

This course is delivered via a mixture or lectures, tutorial, practical laboratories and research seminars. 

Assessment

You'll be assessed via a mixture of written assignments, formal examinations, lab-based assessments, poster presentations and team projects. 

The final MRes thesis is assessed orally in a viva voce examination.  

Careers

An MRes will significantly enhance your CV and improve future employment prospects.

During your studies you'll develop a range of transferable skills that are relevant to careers in industry, academia and the public sector.

In addition, our MRes will develop your communication skills, critical analysis and presentation skills as well as giving you experience of conference attendance and working with large bodies of complex material. An MRes can also be used as a stepping stone for students wishing to continue to an MPhil or PhD, either as a precursor or initial component of the research.
