The Centre for Environmental and Health Engineering (CEHE) is a well-established multidisciplinary postgraduate centre with an international reputation for excellence in water and environmental engineering. It is part of a World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Centre and an invited member of the UNICEF WASH Cluster Group of Relief Agencies. In 2011, the University of Surrey received the Queen’s Anniversary Award for the outstanding teaching and research in water and sanitation taking place in CEHE.
The MSc programme is highly popular and relevant to the needs of future engineers, scientists and professionals in the environmental health, water, wastewater, pollution control, waste management and environmental sectors.
Water and Environmental Engineering MSc attracts UK and overseas graduates who wish to take advantage of the considerable global interest in water, wastewater, sanitation and waste to develop their careers before working for consultancies, water utilities, contractors, relief agencies, regulatory bodies and international organisations. Students have the potential to progress to relevant specialist PhD or EngD research programmes in the field.
In the past, scholarship students have been accepted from a range of schemes, including Foreign Office and British Council Chevening, World Bank, Commonwealth, Thames Water, Commonwealth Shared Scholarships and the Royal Academy of Engineering, together with students from numerous overseas national schemes.
• Applied Chemistry and Microbiology
• Environmental Health
• Pollution Control and Waste Management
• Wastewater Treatment and Sewerage
• Water Treatment
• European Study Tour
• Groundwater Control
• Regulation and Management
• Water Resources Management and Hydraulic Modelling
The MSc dissertation will require you to conduct research and/or display the ability to critically evaluate evidence. Dissertation projects could be based on original laboratory experimentation, field testing, pilot plant work or literature review.
Teaching and assessment
Teaching and learning will normally be achieved by a combination of formal lectures, coursework, demonstrations and site visits, except in the case of the European Study Tour and the dissertation modules. In all other modules, assessment will be by a combination of examinations and continuous assessment. Coursework can involve individual or group projects.
Each module will be examined separately. Where appropriate, there will be a written examination for a module at the end of each semester.
Water and Environmental Engineering lectures are delivered primarily by staff from the Centre for Environmental Health and Engineering (CEHE) and visiting lecturers with national or international reputations in the topic area.
- Teaching hours
Each module corresponds to 150 hours of work, which includes 30 hours of lectures.
These courses have been accredited by The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), The Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE), the Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE) and The Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation (CIHT).
