This Masters degree is designed for students who wish to practice across a broad range environmental engineering and apply new sustainable risk management strategies for complex environmental problems. Water, waste and environmental engineering has been traditionally referred to as public health engineering in the United Kingdom. The aims of the programme are to: show you how to design, implement and manage sustainable, risk-reduced eco-friendly solutions for reducing the environmental impact
This Master's degree is designed for students who wish to practice across a broad range environmental engineering and apply new sustainable risk management strategies for complex environmental problems. Water, waste and environmental engineering has been traditionally referred to as public health engineering in the United Kingdom. The aims of the programme are to: show you how to design, implement and manage sustainable, risk-reduced eco-friendly solutions for reducing the environmental impact of exploitation of earth's resources in the context of environmental engineering-related issues facing global societies; provide you with the skills to further your careers in these areas; support you in understanding the innovative and pioneering approaches in this field and to be able to apply them to the solution of real-world problems in developing novel industrially-relevant solutions.
The Environmental Engineering Research Project will require submission of a substantial final report/dissertation. Assessment of this module will involve participation in a poster and seminar presentation and a final oral examination. Postgraduate students from this programme will find such employment opportunities as engineers, scientist and technical managers in the private sector (engineering design firms, engineering consultancy, project management, risk management and waste management), in the public sector (environmental protection engineering, regulations and standards, local government) and in non-governmental sectors (NGOs, environmental advocacy) or may wish to pursue further qualifications such as a PhD within the Faculty of Engineering and Science at the University of Greenwich to become even more specialised.
The University of Greenwich has three campuses situated in south-east London and Kent. It offers a wide range of postgraduate programmes, along with a number of research degrees.
The university has nine Times Higher Education Awards, four Queen’s Anniversary Prizes for Higher and Further Education and two Guardian University Awards for Research Impact. Among the teaching staff, there are award winning National Teaching Fellows, while alumni of the university include Nobel Prize winners, a British Minister of State and author Malorie Blackman.
There are four faculties making up the university:
Faculty of Liberal Arts and Sciences
Faculty of Education & Health
Faculty of Engineering & Science
The university has strong links with industry professions, and employers from businesses in the City regularly present lectures and seminars.
