Water and Wastewater Engineering MSc/PgDip/PgCert
The key features of this postgraduate level Water Science programme include:
- Industry focused teaching
- Professional accreditation
- Paid industrial project placements for full-time students
- Cranfield graduates are highly sought after by the industry
The Water and Wastewater Engineering programme is ideal 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 programme is suitable for those from non-engineering and engineering disciplines alike: all we require is a science or engineering degree qualification combined with a keen interest in water and wastewater.
Water is coming under increasing pressure from demographic and climatic changes. Treatment processes play a key role in delivering safe, reliable supplies of water to households, industry and agriculture and in safeguarding the quality of water in rivers, lakes, aquifers and around coastal areas. Well educated, skilled and experienced graduates are required to operate and manage vital water and wastewater treatment services. The demand for such graduates is already high and will only increase over coming years as environmental standards for water quality increase, and pressures on our water supplies continue to grow.
This course is suitable for:
Science, environment and engineering graduates keen to pursue careers within companies and organisations involved in water and wastewater engineering, including utilities, contractors, consultants, equipment manufacturers, suppliers and industrial water users. The course is also very suitable for graduates currently working in the water sector keen to extend their qualifications; or individuals with other qualifications who possess considerable relevant experience.
The School of Applied Sciences also offers the MSc Water Management and MTech Water Processes- Advanced Professional Masters.
