Increasingly, novel technologies are developed from and applied to the Environmental Sciences. Areas such as informatics, sensor networks, imaging techniques and pollution remediation technologies are impacting the way we view and manage the environment. The MSc in Environmental Science and Technology explores this field offering broad options and allowing you to choose your area of focus.
For example, you may wish to specialise in areas of earth science, investigating geological hazards and associated risk abatement technologies, or, alternatively, focus on flood forecasting software and novel passive sampler technology for measuring water pollution.
As well as gaining knowledge in one or more areas of environmental science and technology, you will also develop skills in statistics and computing making you a confident and competent handler of data. Graduates will typically find themselves working for consultancies, government organisations or going onto study for a PhD.
This is a two year full-time International MSc (Research) in Environmental Science and Technology, which comprises a dissertation and six specialised taught modules, plus a 12 month overseas research placement.
- Dissertation Project
- Extended Dissertation Project (overseas research)
- Six optional modules chosen from a selection of relevant Biological, Environmental and Geographical modules.
