The MSc in Environmental Engineering aims to provide opportunities for science and engineering graduates to enhance their knowledge of Environmental Engineering and develop their conceptual understanding, technical knowledge and problem-solving skills to enable them to follow successful careers in environmental industries worldwide.
Students taking this MSc course will be able to sustainably protect human health and the environment by being able to conceive, plan and communicate ways to collect, treat and distribute clean water; to collect, treat and reuse or dispose of wastewater and wastes; and to remediate and reclaim contaminated land. In addition to the engineering and scientific aspects, we emphasize the social, economic and institutional context in developed and in developing countries.
The course is underpinned by “World Leading and Internationally Excellent” research (RAE2008) carried out by Newcastle University’s School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences and provides an entry route into the appropriate Chartered Institution.
