Environmental Engineering (Distance Learning) (MSc)


Course Description

Why this course?

Closely aligned with industry’s demands, this course meets the needs of:
- urban regeneration
- environmental protection
- infrastructure investment portfolios in Scotland and worldwide

A distinctive feature of this course is its highly topical nature. Glasgow has been undergoing extensive urban regeneration. This included building on land that's been contaminated in the past. You’ll have challenging 'real world' issues to study close to the University.

This MSc provides the knowledge and skills to equip you for a career in either environmental engineering or science.

See the website https://www.strath.ac.uk/courses/postgraduatetaught/environmentalengineering/

You’ll study

You'll follow a curriculum of five core classes and a wide range of optional classes. Each class is taught for two to three hours per week over eight to 12 weeks.

Following successful completion of the taught component, you’ll undertake a dissertation from June to August. In addition to the dissertation topics proposed by course leaders and industrial partners, you may propose topics that can be of relevance to your employer.

For part-time study the modules can be taken over two years (attending classes typically one day per week) with the dissertation completed in Year 2 or 3.

Work Placement

As part of the class Independent Study in Collaboration with Industry you can apply to work with industry projects.

Attendance

One year full-time study involves attendance at classes over two terms, plus a dissertation during the third term.
Part-time (open to UK/EU students only) involves class attendance in Years 1 & 2 and a dissertation in Year 2.
You can also study this course part-time through online distance learning, over 36 months, offering a flexible learning mode of study.

Facilities

Our laboratory facilities are well-equipped for a wide range of environmental measurements. High-technological instrumentation and space are available to investigate:
- environmental microbiology and molecular biology
- environmental and analytical chemistry
- air pollution monitoring
- soil mechanics and quality
- ecotoxicology

Accreditation

This degree is accredited as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired a partial CEng accredited undergraduate first degree.

Open Access

Home students can also choose to study through Open Access. This is initially a non-graduating route. You register for one module at a time and have the option to build up credits eventually leading to a Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or MSc. You can take up to five years to achieve the qualification.

This option is popular with students in employment, who may wish to undertake modules for Continuing Professional Development purposes.

Home students who do not meet the normal MSc entry requirements for this programme are welcome to apply through the Open Access route instead.

Pre-Masters preparation course

The Pre-Masters Programme is a preparation course for international students (non EU/UK) who do not meet the entry requirements for a Masters degree at University of Strathclyde. The Pre-Masters programme provides progression to a number of degree options.
To find out more about the courses and opportunities on offer visit isc.strath.ac.uk or call today on +44 (0) 1273 339333 and discuss your education future. You can also complete the online application form. To ask a question please fill in the enquiry form and talk to one of our multi-lingual Student Enrolment Advisers today.

Careers

Graduates of the MSc are widely scattered internationally in environmentally related jobs – including a large number of environmental and engineering consultancies, industry, local government and national and international regulatory agencies.
The career prospects of graduates are excellent due to the significant skills shortages in the environmental engineering field both in the UK and overseas.

Where are they now?

Many of our graduates are in work or further study.*

Job titles include:
- Entry-level Civil Engineer in Landfill Division
- Environmental Analyst
- Environmental Health and Safety Analyst
- Forestry Civil Engineer
- Graduate Engineer

Employers include:
- Adrian Laycook Ltd
- Cairns Intersphere Consulting

(Student Profile)

Fabienne Ericher

815.jpg I completed the MSc in Environmental Engineering
in 2008/2009 at Strathclyde University. Prior to
doing this MSc course, I obtained an Industrial
Biology Engineering degree in Cergy (France) during
which I carried out two interesting internships in the
environmental sector. While most of my fellow
students were settling in the pharmaceutical and
cosmetic industry, I wanted to acquire more skills
and knowledge in other environmental aspects such
as remediation techniques and environmental
impacts modelling, while adding an international
aspect to my formation.
I had previously spent a few months working in
London. I enjoyed the challenge of immersion in a
foreign country and wished to renew the experience.
I applied for various MSc courses throughout the
UK, and opted for the MSc in Environmental
Engineering proposed by Strathclyde University. I
already had a solid scientific background and the
DLCS system allowed me to pick the specific
classes I thought would complement my formation.
I really wanted to carry out my MSc dissertation within an industrial internship, to experience working
on environmental issues within the UK. The staff were really supportive during my 'project seeking'
and I eventually found an internship within the Scottish Borders Council, on recommendation of Dr
João. I carried out an independent evaluation of the Council's contaminated land Geographical
Information Systems (GIS) database to estimate the database's suitability with the Council's strategy.
My work was successful and I was asked to come back under a consultant contract to carry out my
project proposal on the database's improvement.
This first experience in a local authority perfectly complemented my formation at Strathclyde; I was
able to apply my new skills in GIS modelling and my knowledge of contaminating activities.
I don't regret having chosen Scotland on a personal point of view either; I met lots of interesting people
and fell in love with its stunning wilderness! I recommend to any international student to arrive alone
and unprepared: that's the best way to learn, meet people and avoid getting trapped in a group
composed of fellow citizens!

Karantarat Nakwa

817.jpg Prior to coming to Strathclyde to do the MSc course in Science, Technology and
Sustainability (STS) in 2008/09, I worked as a policy research assistant at the National
Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) in Thailand. A 3-year work
experience at NSTDA paved the way for me to engage in career development as a
science and technology and development policy analyst through further training up to
PhD level. I am now a Ph.D. student at Strathclyde having successfully completed the
M.Sc. course in Science, Technology and Sustainability.
I am happy I chose to come to Strathclyde and to do the MSc course offered by the
David Livingstone Centre of Sustainability. The course added significantly to my
knowledge of Economics, which I studied in Thailand at both undergraduate and
graduate levels, and widened my horizon, giving me a sharp sense of perspective in
science, technology and development policy analysis. It also provided a strong basis for
me to engage in a Ph.D. research in the area of science, technology and sustainability.
Its multidisciplinary character makes it particularly suitable for students to explore policy
issues in sustainability and sustainable development in the context of developing
countries like Thailand.
I found the course challenging and enriching. The lecturers on the course and my
supervisor were all supportive and my classmates were my best friends. What I have
gained from being on the course is not only multidisciplinary education, which is
essential for sound policy analysis, but also multicultural experience.
After completing the one-year M.Sc. course, I decided to continue my PhD studies at
Strathclyde University because I was attracted by the social and academic environment
at the DLCS as well as by the facilities and the supportive supervision that were on offer.
Moreover, I think Glasgow is a great friendly city where one can choose to go to study. It
has a wide range of activities for living and studying.
If you are looking for a good postgraduate course in policy, innovation and development
studies, I would, based on my firsthand experience as a student, strongly recommend
the M.Sc. in Science, Technology and Sustainability, offered by the David Livingstone
Centre for Sustainability at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow.
