Environmental Science and Technology PGCert

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.

The PgCert provides an opportunity for postgraduate learning and professional development for those who are unable to commit to a full MSc programme. The award requires the successful completion of four 15 credit modules, selected from the modules available on the MSc course.
