Membrane Technology MSc by Research


Course Description

Visit our website for more information on fees, scholarships, postgraduate loans and other funding options to study Membrane Technology at Swansea University - 'Welsh University of the Year 2017' (Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017).

Swansea University is a world-leader in the area of membrane technologies for water treatment.

Key Features of MSc by Research in Membrane Technology

Pressure is increasing on our limited water resources. With more people requiring clean water, effective solutions need to come from reusing water in the most efficient way. The Centre for Water Advanced Technologies and Environmental Research (CWATER) is an internationally leading centre of excellence for the development of advanced technologies in water treatment.

The Centre benefits from world-leading expertise in the area of membrane technologies for water treatment.

The Centre for Water Advanced Technologies and Environmental Research (CWATER) research areas, broadly speaking, fit into one of three categories:

- Drinking water treatment: improved methods of portable water treatment, with a view to meeting tightening regulations at cheaper capital and operating costs.

- Waste-water treatment: technologies for the efficient removal of environmentally harmful materials and thus reduced emissions per output of discharge.

- Process-water treatment: methods for the treatment of process streams enabling the recycling of water and valuable chemical intermediates.

The MSc by Research in Membrane Technology has a wide range of subject choices including:

Modelling membrane processes

Membrane and process characterisation

Hazardous substances

Bioprocessing

Development of new membranes

Ozonation and Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs)

Pilot scale studies

Facilities

Our new home at the innovative Bay Campus provides some of the best university facilities in the UK, in an outstanding location.
