About Pollution Control
Masters degrees in Pollution Control equip postgraduates with the skills to reduce the emission and distribution of noxious substances in the environment.
Taught MSc degrees are typical for the field, though research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Environmental Science.
Courses in this field offer a highly interdisciplinary approach to find solutions to the everyday problems which create and impact levels of pollution within various ecosystems.
You may investigate pollution across different disciplines including Meteorology (air pollution), marine ecology (pollutants in the seas and oceans), and wetland science (which may include rivers, ponds and lakes).
Practical training will include a range of methods in computer science and geographical surveillance, including data modelling, remote sensing and GIS (geographical information systems). Training may also include sampling practise, bioimaging and experiment design.
Careers in this field range from environmental monitoring and direct research, to law and regulation in both the public and private sectors. For example, you may work on behalf of an agency or government department to ensure sustainable practice across various industries.
