Environmental Management (with pathways in Energy, Oil & Gas, Waste or Water)

The overall aim of the MSc Environmental Management (EM) programme is to enable students to develop an environmental specialisation, within the context of their previous qualifications and experience.

With increasing environmental legislation and regulation, commercial and industrial organisations, local authorities and public bodies, all require some environmental input to their activities.

Graduates have gone on to work for employers including local authorities, regulators such as Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA), and provide research and consultancy for private companies.

The broad scope of the programme is designed to stretch students’ educational horizons across traditional subject boundaries, encompassing areas normally associated with engineering, biology, economics, legislation and others.

With pathways in Oil and Gas, Water, Energy, or Waste, students will learn to develop technical and non-technical arguments at an advanced level.

Optional pathways

The MSc Environmental Management (Waste) Pathway is more specific, in that it allows students to develop skills and knowledge in modern waste management practices, for those who intend to pursue a career in that area.

The (Oil and Gas) Pathway is to enable students to develop an Oil and Gas related specialisation, within the context of Energy and Environmental Management and building on their previous qualifications and experience.

The (Water) Pathway is design to develop the knowledge and skills of students looking to develop a career in the water/wastewater sector.

The (Energy) Pathway places specific emphasis on the environmental consequences of energy use and the opportunities through renewable energy technologies to support a low carbon economy
