Programme structure

Core units provide a common platform of underpinning skills and knowledge at a postgraduate level to help you understand the basic principles of water and environmental management and the complexity and interdisciplinary skills required to work in this field. These units include mathematics and computing skills to support modelling and statistical analysis, along with the fundamental processes that govern water movement through the atmosphere, atmosphere-biosphere interactions and surface and groundwater water flows through catchments. 

Core units also explore how this knowledge is used to develop and implement environmental policies, regulations and plans, and to manage water and environmental values. You will also choose from a selection of optional units, which in recent years have covered integrated catchment management, environmental systems and ecosystem services and water and wastewater management. Finally, you will complete a supervised research-based dissertation.
