Overview

Looking after our water resources has never been more important or more challenging.

The world needs engineering graduates who can tackle the problems of flooding, pollution and infrastructure design.

Our MSc aims to meet that demand.

Powered by the world-leading research of our own specialists, the course offers training in sustainable urban development and environmental management. And the chance to carry out research of your own.

The basic structure is September-June: taught modules and
preparation for your dissertation. June-August: complete your dissertation.

Programme structure

The first semester gives you a grounding in the relevant engineering science:
Hydrology
Hydraulics
Hydrogeology
Modelling Methods

In the second semester, you’ll apply that knowledge to a series of topics, including:
Urban Drainage
Groundwater Remediation
Open Channel Flow

Your research dissertation gives you the opportunity to work with an academic on a piece of research in a subdiscipline.
