Atmospheric Emission Technology (MSc/PgCert/PgDip)

Course Description

MSc in Atmospheric Emission Technology (AET) course is designed to provide up-to-date knowledge focussing on international and industrial emission monitoring and control technologies. In addition, latest atmospheric and air quality policy and modelling developments will be introduced to prepare students for a career as air quality monitoring and emissions technology experts within industry, environmental consultancies, or regulators.

Currently, there is a scarcity of higher education courses in topics that are relevant to air quality management, the introduction of this course will provide a future generation of professionals in air quality and air pollution control sector with comprehensive understanding of sources and dispersion of atmospheric pollutants linked with key industrial processes and vehicle/aircraft emission.

Improving air quality through the control of pollutant emissions is a high priority and global challenge. To control, monitor and model atmospheric emissions requires in-depth understanding of the sources of emission, atmospheric chemistry, dispersion modelling and emissions technology.

Group project

The Group Projects are founded on group-based research programmes typically undertaken between February and April. The projects are designed to integrate knowledge, understanding and skills from the taught modules in a real-life situation.

Individual Project

The thesis project, typically delivered between May and September, further develops research and project management skills that: provide the ability to think and work in an original way; contribute to knowledge; overcome genuine problems; and communicate through a thesis and oral exam. Each student is allocated a supervisor, who will guide and assess the student work.
