    Course description
    The environmental science and technology sector ranges from the fast-moving competitive marketplace for energy efficiency and effective solutions to air, water and land pollution, to the variably paced greening of every other facet of human activity in the region. This programme represents an innovative approach to meeting these rapidly evolving needs in the context of environmental science and technology, through a partnership between the School of Earth, Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences and the Manchester Science and Enterprise Centre (MSEC). This full-time, one-year programme has been designed to appeal to scientists and engineers who would like to develop their entrepreneurial skills and go on to either develop their own business or work for a company where enterprise and entrepreneurship is valued. It will also appeal to companies who want to use the course to develop their staff for more entrepreneurial roles, for example where an in-company project is ready for commercialisation.

    The programme focuses on an Enterprise Project, which is an exercise in technology transfer, combining scientific research and development, performed in a research group, with commercial work performed in the Centre's Enterprise Laboratories. Its taught element includes two optional science- or technology-based modules and two compulsory enterprise orientated modules that develop the student's knowledge and capability in technology transfer - knowledge that feeds directly into their enterprise project.
