Course detail

- Description -

The MSc Environmental Monitoring, Modelling and Managementprogramme provides advanced-level core training in environmental modelling and monitoring, remote sensing and Geographical Information Systems (GIS), and in the research methods training required to use them effectively. Modules examine how to assess the causes and consequences of environmental, climatic and land-use change. Students can opt for a research pathway or a consultancy pathway. The two pathways share key training elements. The research pathway links a student with a departmental research group working on research aspects of environmental modelling and monitoring, and is designed explicitly for those going on to a career in research. The consultancy pathway focuses on the application of key training to environmental management, and is designed for those who wish to use their skills directly in environmental management.

- Course purpose -
