The MSc in Hydrology and Climate Change aims to provide opportunities for graduates with first degrees in a range of scientific and engineering disciplines to enhance their knowledge of the water environment and its management in the context of climate change, through theoretical, practical and computational (informatics) training. This programme aims to prepare engineers to solve hydrological and water resource problems with the understanding that past hydrological behaviour may no long be a suitable guide for the future, something of relevance to the needs of the modern water industry.
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.
The modules currently studied are shown below:
- Environmental Engineering for Developing Countries
- Quantitative Methods for Engineering
