This one-year MSc in Environmental Science has an international appeal due to its particularly strong scientific underpinning to environmental analysis, with practical and laboratory work in many classes. Established in 1991, it combines the joint expertise of two departments from two universities: Civil Engineering from Strathclyde and Chemistry from Glasgow.
Global Water Sustainability
This exciting initiative will enable students to benefit from the combined resources and complementary expertise of staff at two of Scotland’s premier Universities, namely the University of Glasgow and the University of Strathclyde. The goal of the MSc in Global Water Sustainability is to understand the nature of the fresh water (and sanitation) crisis facing the planet and how this impacts our lives in terms of pollution, water quality, water supply, water for energy, sanitation, wastewater, climate change and groundwater availability.
Geotechnics in Partnership with Industry
This innovative course taught by staff at the University of Strathclyde and the University of Glasgow, Scotland, is run in partnership with industry and is therefore closely aligned with industry's needs. The industrial partners include major consultancies, such as Atkins, Jacobs, Donaldson Associates, Halcrow and Scott Wilson, specialist geotechnical contractors, such as BAM Ritchies and Keller Ground Engineering, as well as the international site investigation specialist Fugro Engineering Services.
The MRes course in Geo-Environmental Engineering is unique in Scotland and the UK for being taught by a group of professionally qualified civil engineers, chemists, microbiologists, and economists employed full-time in the one university department.
Infrastructure Adaptation for Climate Change
This course aims to provide advanced study in infrastructure adaptation for climate change from the perspective of the engineering profession. This course is largely research and project-based and includes a taught element involving a curriculum of no fewer than 60 credits. Credits are derived from six modules taught by a group of professionally qualified staff with relevant expertise and teaching and research experience.
Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC)
The MRes in IPPC aims to provide advanced study in Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control within the European Community Directive framework. The course is largely research and project-based. There is also a taught element to it, involving a curriculum of no fewer than 60 credits deriving from six modules taught by a group of professionally qualified staff with relevant expertise and teaching and research experience.
