The impact of climate change on water resources continues to present new challenges to local and national governments worldwide. This course provides an overview of the current issues in the water/environmental industry, both in the UK and overseas. Participants acquire specialist knowledge and develop key analytical and scientific skills in the context of current environmental legislation such as the new EU Water Framework Directive.

The degree recognises that, to meet the challenge of certain types of jobs in the water/environmental industry, many graduates in technical professions require a year of further academic specialisation in addition to their initial BEng or BSc awards.

Areas of study
Study comprises four core modules, an intensive residential fieldwork component in which the knowledge acquired in those modules is put into practice, and a selection of options. An individual project is undertaken in an area of particular interest. Typical examples might include an investigation of estuarine flow processes; assessment of potential for re-use of treated effluent; or management of water resources in the UK and overseas.

Syllabus
Water Resources Management
Water Treatment Technology
Waste-water Treatment Technology
Quantitative Techniques for Water and Environmental Management
Water Quality Analysis (residential fieldwork)

Options from:
Hydrogeology and Hydrology
Environmental Impact Assessment
Ecological Principles
Cost and Financial Management
Geographical Information Systems and Environmental Management

Career and progression opportunities
Graduates are well equipped to apply for jobs with water companies, local government, the Environment Agency or civil engineering consultants, as well as equivalent bodies overseas.
