    MSc Contaminated Land and Freshwater Management


This is a creative programme that addresses human intervention strategies towards problem solving in the real-world on examples such as flood defence, monitoring of contaminated environments, and processes involved in decision-making. This will be achieved by linking with external organisations to include practical experience through field and laboratory work, and practitioner training through placements.
Aspects of contaminated land will include legislation and regulation, identification, analysis and remediation, and human health exposure assessment through a case study approach using research informed teaching, as well as practitioner training. Within the water aspects of our course, you will focus on the environmental monitoring and assessment of freshwater, legislation and regulatory aspects, management of freshwater towards prevention and control of contamination, drinking water quality and human health, and a focus on flood defence.

The programme allows for progression in terms of further qualifications and employment. The Masters is a good basis for further study in the form of a research degree (MPhil/PhD) and coupled with relevant experience, may contribute towards gaining full membership of professional accreditation bodies such as the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM), the Institution of Environmental Sciences (IES), as well as achieve professional body recognised status such as Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv). These will also provide a good resource for employment opportunities and keeping up to date on developments in the field. From a wider perspective, the programme provides a suitable qualification for those working in allied areas to progress and broaden the skills they offer, for example, environmental consultants who wish to specialise in land remediation, or other environmental management areas.
