Course summary

This unique course, running since 2008 – the first of its kind in Europe – meets the needs of graduate students who want to contribute to environmental improvement and the circular economy, and learn how to identify and evaluate business opportunities. Throughout the course, you’ll develop skills that'll allow you to launch new ventures, strategies, products, and technologies that address society's environmental and natural resource problems. Although this course is offered by an engineering department, it is unique as it accepts students from all backgrounds (social sciences, arts, engineering, law, chemistry, maths, physics, geology, biology and business). Students are able to select class options from a wide range of subjects to suit their background. The course is a collaboration between the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering and the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship. The course is suitable for anyone who'd like to refocus their career on environmental or sustainable entrepreneurship.

Modules

Compulsory classes: Qualitative & Quantitative Research Methods, Environmental Geochemistry, Principles of Environmental Microbiology, Site Investigation and Risk Assessment, Waste Management and Landfill Design. Choose from 7 elective classes.


Entry requirements

Normally, a first or upper second-class Honours degree from a UK university (or equivalent overseas qualification) in environmental sciences, engineering, environmental management, biology, chemistry or other related disciplines. Lower degree classifications might be considered if there is strength elsewhere (for example, relevant work experience, excellent final project/dissertation, very strong academic letter of reference, very strong application statement linking with career goals.)
