Student Profile(s)

Reid Polmanteer

The overall MSc in Hydrogeology, while unique, amazingly fun and interesting, also opened up the door for me to start a career in Africa as a consultant. The programme has provided me with the knowledge and skills necessary to be a successful consultant in a place that desperately needs this sort of expertise.
