The Master of Technology - Advanced Professional Masters (MTech) qualification is an innovative model of postgraduate study combining taught Masters study, company-based research, professional development and industrial experience. It has been designed to meet industry's increasing demand for high calibre professionals by balancing the teaching of technical knowledge with the development of applied, commercially driven research capability.
The MTech Water Processes is the ideal programme for individuals who want to make a real difference to delivering reliable water supplies, or to maintaining and enhancing river and ground water quality. The UK water industry has a high demand for 'process literate' graduates who can design, engineer and manage treatment plant, equipment and associated processes. This specialist postgraduate course has been designed and developed in conjunction with key stakeholders in the water industry to provide a tailor-made solution to the skills and knowledge shortage facing the sector. The MTech programme involves students spending the majority of their time based within their sponsoring company, gaining hands-on experience whilst learning in an industrial context.
This course is suitable for science or engineering graduates keen to pursue careers within companies involved in water and wastewater treatment, process contractors, consultants, equipment manufacturers, suppliers and industrial water users; or graduates currently working in the water sector keen to extend their qualifications; or individuals with other qualifications who possess considerable relevant experience.
