Programme structure

Core units provide a common platform of underpinning skills and knowledge at master's level in the basics of water and environmental management. These units provide you with mathematics, computing and research skills, together with a firm understanding of fundamental processes that govern water movement through the atmosphere, atmosphere–biosphere interactions and water flows through river catchments. These units also explore how this fundamental understanding leads to environmental management, policy and legislation at local, national and international levels.

Optional units provide specialist knowledge in a range of carefully chosen options, from which you will be able to select two units. Finally, you will complete a research-based dissertation.

The method of teaching this programme is to focus on each unit for a concentrated period of time (typically, two to three weeks) before moving on to the next unit, rather than the traditional method of teaching several units in parallel.

Visit our programme catalogue for full details of the structure and unit content for our MSc in Water and Environmental Management.


The programme will help you become a high-level practitioner in water and environmental management and gain advanced skills and knowledge in the fundamental engineering principles that underpin this field. Students who have completed this programme have gone on to work for government agencies both in the UK and overseas, for water companies and for environmental consultancies.
