Course summary

Our Master's in Water, Waste and Environmental Engineering with Industrial Practice is ideal for graduates who are seeking managerial roles in engineering and manufacturing. This course gives you the skills to design and develop new concepts for water and waste that are environmentally friendly. It combines science, public health and engineering, so you will develop the skills to cover the technical elements of natural and engineering environmental systems. You'll also learn to handle the full delivery process of engineered and natural water and earth resources, from the planning and design stage to construction and maintenance. Our two-year course is aimed at graduates from environmental engineering backgrounds who want to apply sustainability strategies to complex problems. It will also suit those wishing to develop their careers in engineering managerial roles, manufacturing, or in related commercial enterprise. The course includes a project and a one-year internship with a related employer in the field, allowing you to put your learning into practice and gain vital career skills. What you should know about this course

  • Ideal for graduates looking to apply new sustainable strategies to increasingly complex problems in environmental engineering.
  • You are responsible for securing your placement (with our help). But if this is not completed, you can still graduate with an award without industrial practice.
  • This course is taught at our Medway Campus in Kent.
