Environmental Science Master in Science by Research
This course is aimed at students who wish to pursue a research degree in some aspect of environmental science. The course is suitable for students wishing to obtain a short introduction to research prior to directly entering a research environment in employment or as a research student at PhD level.
Successful students will find employment in research environments in both universities and industry. Also, there is a demand for students with Master's degrees in environmental subjects outside research. Currently, our taught Master's students are highly successful in finding employment and in some subject areas, the supply of suitable qualified postgraduate staff is not meeting demand.
Projects will be offered in the following areas:
* Contaminated Land
* Air Pollution
* Water Pollution
* Environmental Management System
* Energy Management
* Environmental Auditing
* Biological Conservation
* Waste Management
* and also in the broader aspects of Environmental Regulation and Management.
