Scheme Structure

A student observes an experiment in progress

The MSc in Geoenvironmental Engineering provides students with a theoretical and practical knowledge of geoenvironmental engineering based on a sound foundation in engineering, hydrogeology, geochemistry and hydrobiology. Industrial involvement with the design and delivery of the course is extensive. A feature of the MSc is a series of short, workshop style training courses covering practical aspects of geoenvironmental engineering applications, which integrate professional practice issues with the scientific and engineering foundation of the MSc. These short courses are delivered by recognised professional practitioners in the industry.

This course was originally established as a flagship MSc course in geoenvironmental engineering with funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.

The MSc is designed to provide a foundation for careers in geoenvironmental monitoring, geoenvironmental engineering, and geoenvironmental management. It is intended for graduates in specialist areas of civil engineering, environmental engineering, earth sciences or biology, who wish to enhance their engineering and scientific skills across these disciplines. An extended research project within one of the geoenvironmental engineering fields forms a major part of the course. This multidisciplinary masters course provides advanced knowledge beyond first degree level, and gives training in the direct application of this knowledge to the assessment and solution of geoenvironmental challenges.
