Programme overview

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.

Compulsory modules:

• Applied Chemistry and Microbiology
• Environmental Health
• Pollution Control and Waste Management
• Wastewater Treatment and Sewerage
• Water Treatment

Optional modules:

• European Study Tour
• Groundwater Control
• Regulation and Management
• Water Resources Management and Hydraulic Modelling

- Dissertation
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.

(Student Profile)

Jade-Ashlee Cox

1782.jpg The SEES Engineering Doctorate at the University of Surrey complements my degree in Physical Geography from the University of Durham and MSc in Environmental Technology (Distinction) from Imperial College London.

My main motivation for undertaking the EngD was due to its direct engagement with waste management, environmental service firms and local government, in which I intend to pursue a career. The importance of waste resource management and making it effective is, in my opinion, the biggest challenge of today’s society. The EngD is a careful balance between working in industry and academia. It is an invaluable experience to gain the skills that will be required later in your career, whilst studying a subject in which you wish to become an expert and that you thoroughly enjoy.

The EngD provides the opportunity to develop a network within industry which is a great foundation for things to come. Coupled with the support and academic genius of the University, your project can deliver bigger and better results, as opposed to working in isolation.

Supervisors and support staff at the University make this an entirely enjoyable experience, even when times get hard. Supervisors both in industry and academia are enthusiastic about the projects and provide an excellent level of support as well as knowledge.

The EngD will enhance my opportunities and increase the level to which I can go individually, as well as in the industry I have grown to love. Working within local government has made me wish to pursue an environmental career within the higher echelons of the civil service which I believe will only be possible through the experience I will have gained through the EngD.
