Environmental Science and Technology MSc
Increasingly, novel technologies such as informatics, sensor networks, imaging techniques and pollution remediation technologies are impacting the way we view and manage the environment. This scheme explores these issues and offers you a broad range of options allowing you to choose your area of focus.
As well as gaining knowledge in one or more areas of environmental science and technology, you will also develop skills in statistics and computing. Graduates will typically find themselves working for consultancies, government organisations or going on to study for a PhD.
There is also a two-year full-time International MSc (Research) in Environmental Science and Technology, which additionally includes a 12 month overseas research placement.
