Objectives:
The scale of modern industrialisation and population growth has given rise to environmental problems of unprecedented complexity. As a result, Environmental Engineers face the challenge of managing a wide range of problems including toxic waste, air pollution, contaminated land, contaminated water, waste disposal and global warming. A high level of resource management is demanded, often requiring improvements to manufacturing processes and in the utilisation of natural resources. The collection, treatment and recycling of solid, liquid and gaseous waste streams from industrial and municipal sources are also essential elements in the protection of the environment. The rising interest in Environmental Protection has resulted in a substantial increase in the number of Environmental Engineering projects being undertaken throughout the world. This has generated a growing demand for good quality Environmental Engineers equipped with the knowledge, skills and expertise to design and implement effective solutions in a broad range of situations. In response to this growing demand, the Postgraduate Diploma in Environmental Engineering has been designed to suit Engineering graduates who are seeking a formal qualification in this fast developing field.

Course Content

The course content is planned to enable you, the engineer, to work across the interface between Engineering and the Environment, harmonising the responsibility and statutory requirements for environmental protection with the needs of a modern industrial society by assessing and managing the effects of natural and human activity on the natural and built environments.

To achieve this effectively requires a sound understanding of the technology and its application, together with an appreciation of the economic, legal, social and ethical aspects of the problems. All of these issues are addressed in the taught component of the course.

Course Structure

The Postgraduate Diploma in Environmental Engineering is taught on a full-time basis over nine months, commencing in October.

You will need to complete a total of 120 credits’ worth of taught modules to pass the course, which includes an integrated project but – unlike the Masters – has no dissertation / major project requirement.

The course utilises an integrated educational approach in which lectures, example classes, laboratories and information technology form key elements.

We also offer a Masters in Environmental Engineering.
