For a general introduction of this programme, please visit the main ESE site.
- Students will require 180 credits in total.
Students must ensure they have 120 credits in taught modules by Term 2.
- The summer term will consist of the individual summer project worth 60 credits.
- All taught modules are worth 15 credits, except the Collaborative Environmental Systems Projects which is worth 30 credits.
**It is usually possible to take modules from other MSc programmes across the university providing these are relevant to environmental engineering. A list of suggested optional modules is available for viewing on the MSc ESE website under ‘Optional Modules’. if you wish to take any modules that do NOT appear on the list you must get approval from Dr Sarah Bell before attempting to register.
When choosing an option it is your responsibility to ensure that there are NO timetable clashes.
Please note that some modules may be withdrawn due to low enrolment.
To enrol on optional modules, students must contact the teacher/administrator of the course directly for permission. (Unless offered by CEGE in which case students can directly enrol themselves onto Portico). Once permission has been granted, students must officially enrol themselves onto the modules via PORTICO.
Field courses will take place for Environmental Systems and Systems, Society and Sustainability in Term 1. These dates will be made available as soon as they are confirmed.
The minimum entry requirements are a good second class honours degree in a cognate subject or related discipline, from a UK university or the equivalent from an overseas institution. Extensive work experience covering related areas will be considered.
