The University of Sheffield
Looking after our water resources has never been more important or more challenging. The world needs engineering graduates who can tackle the problems of flooding, pollution and infrastructure design. Our MSc aims to meet that demand.
Powered by the world-leading research of our own specialists, the course offers training in sustainable urban development, environmental management, and the chance to carry out research of your own. This is the basic structure:
The first semester gives you a grounding in the relevant engineering science: hydrology, hydraulics, hydrogeology and modelling methods. In the second semester, you'll apply that knowledge to a series of topics, including: urban drainage, groundwater remediation and open channel flow.
MSc: Minimum 2.1 Honours degree in a relevant subject. English language requirements: overall IELTS grade of 6.5 with a minimum of 6.0 in each component, or equivalent.
Engineering Hydrology; Advanced Hydraulics; Hydrogeology and Research Skills;
Surface Water Quality Processes; Computational Methods for Water Engineering.
Examples of optional modules
Flood Risk Management; SuDS and Green Infrastructure; Remediation of Groundwater Pollution; Design of Water Distribution and Sewer Networks; Coastal Engineering.
Assessment is by formal examinations, coursework assignments and a dissertation with oral examination. For environment courses, students also take class and practical tests.
