At the heart of the new infrastructure agenda is a need for environmental engineers who understand the technologies for pollution control and the commercial opportunities for business. The ‘green economy’ is internationally recognized as a key contributor to economic growth, and delivery of a low carbon future relies on a transition to clean technology, supported a strong engineering base. Total output in the UK green economy stands at £55.4bn, with 357,200 jobs in 2012, an increase of 5.3% since 2010.
The Cranfield MSc in Environmental Engineering equips students with the knowledge and skills to solve a wide-range of environmental engineering challenges. The course covers municipal and hazardous waste management, process emissions, contaminated land, water, wastewater and waste disposal. The programme also addresses energy and resource recovery from waste materials. Funding for your place is available from a range of sources, including from School funds for high calibre applicants. Please do not hesitate to speak to our course admissions tutors in this regard.
Energy, Environment and Agrifood are key strategic themes at Cranfield and you will be taught by staff from across these themes. Industrial-scale facilities underpin our research and teaching. Our activities include internationally recognised centres of excellence in water science, renewables technology and agri-tech. Much of the research that informs our teaching is at the leading edge of the clean tech agenda and our outreach activities are shaping the technology-management debate on science for the green economy.
