  • Disposal of waste
  • Environmental compliance – reducing the impact of spills and emissions
  • Flooding and drainage
  • Infrastructure and development
  • Management of pollutants
  • Recovery of damaged land (damaged through; mining, farming or landfill)
  • Water supply and sanitation

Our course offers the opportunity to undertake a one-year paid industrial placement and/or study abroad.

This course is accredited by the IChemE (Institution of Chemical Engineers) to BEng standard and by the IOM3 (Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining) to MEng standard under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council.
