Course Introduction

Overview

This course develops your understanding of environmental problems at a master?s level and gives you the skills to analyse and develop long-term solutions. You?ll be able to oversee environmental performance in the private, public and voluntary sector ensuring that improvements are made where possible and legislation is followed. This course seeks to raise your ability to understand and analyse environmental problems, in order to develop long-term solutions.

You can take the course with or without a Professional Development work placement. Both options are accredited by the Institution of Environmental Sciences (IES) and the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM).

The Professional Development option provides you with an integrated work placement. You?ll have the opportunity to work on various projects and graduate with hands-on professional experience, something that will make you stand out when you embark on your career. At Brunel, we have excellent links with many organisations through our research activities so you can be assured of a high-quality placement at a relevant organisation. Opportunities for our MSc students include placements at The Environment Agency and international placements at the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).

Careers and your future

After completing the course you will be equipped with the skills to pursue a range of environmental careers. You may wish to work as an environmental manager, an environmental analyst or perhaps start up your own consultancy or business. Many of our graduates go on to PhD level and research green technology. Some have started their own businesses supporting SMEs to remove toxic chemicals from wastewater treatment. There are opportunities in business, industry, education or government and local councils.
