The aim of this MSc (Eng) course is to give you a clear and fundamental knowledge of the environmental issues from a technological and engineering point of view. The practical engineering issues surrounding environmental impact and the, often neglected, underlying factors governing energy conservation and maximised efficiency (a pre-requisite to reduce emissions) are outlined throughout the course.
Entry requirements Minimum second-class Honours degree or equivalent in Engineering or Science. For students who wish to specialise in environmental/energy engineering, or are already working in this field and wish to deepen their knowledge. Individually tailored to each student’s requirements by a wide choice of optional modules. Provides knowledge of formation, minimisation and effects of pollutant emissions from an engineer’s point of view.
