As our populations grow, we need to produce new things smarter, safer and cleaner whilst protecting our natural resources. Through your commitment to a more sustainable future, you will work towards managing and reducing waste to minimise pollution. As an environmental engineer, you will be passionate about protecting, restoring and preserving the planet. Environmental engineers design processes and products that minimise impacts on air, land and water, whilst making the most of finite natural resources. Environmental engineers work within the following areas:
- Disposal of waste
- Environmental compliance – reducing the impact of spills and emissions
- Flooding and drainage
- Infrastructure and development
- Management of pollutants
- Recovery of damaged land (damaged through; mining, farming or landfill)
- Water supply and sanitation
You will share the same first year across the department - developing knowledge of the engineering fundamentals, science and design. At the end of year one you can elect to transfer to any of the courses offered by the department. In year three, in addition to advanced modules, you will undertake an industry-focused group design project, which simulates a commercial environment and will allow you to develop and demonstrate valuable skills for your future career as a professional chemical engineer. In year four, you will be able to specialise by choosing modules that suit your own interests and career path. You will also undertake a research and development project, giving you first-hand experience in cutting-edge research and advanced design practices. Through lectures, group study and tutorials combined with coursework and self-study, you may spend over 40 hours a week on your studies.
How to apply
You can no longer submit a new application for courses starting in 2022.
If you already have a 2022 application and are in Clearing, you can add this course as a Clearing choice – contact the university or college first to check they have places.
This is the deadline for applications to be completed and sent for this course. If the university or college still has places available you can apply after this date, but your application is not guaranteed to be considered.
