The Masters programme in Water Energy and the Environment is designed to help you become a competent environmental engineer and manager, by giving you a sound knowledge of the fundamental engineering and scientific principles, together with the ability to apply these to design, construction, assessment, analysis, operation and management.
The programme has two principal aims. First, to equip you with the necessary competencies and skills to analyse, assess and manage all principal aspects within the fields of water, energy and the environment. Second, to give you the professional skills, knowledge and experience to both meet the current demands of industry and influence possible future trends.
You will develop enhanced analytical and technical skills as well as developing the higher level managerial and decision-making skills necessary to ensure that sound judgements are carried through into the relevant operational activities.
As a result of your studies, you can expect to develop an adequate and sound understanding of the relevant engineering and scientific principles as well as the relevant legal processes and their related legislation. You will also develop a critical awareness of current environmental thinking in the context of water, energy and land. You will also gain:
•an understanding of the principles of operational management and sound decision taking and begin exploring the complex situations that may be encountered •advanced logical and analytical abilities, plus an enhanced sense of enquiry and ability for original and creative thought •the conceptual tools to cope both with rapid technological change and unpredictable situations •the capacity to manage your own development and apply prior knowledge and experience within the programme
