Brunel University London: Water Engineering
|Institution||Brunel University London View institution profile|
|Department||Civil and Environmental Engineering|
The global shortage of qualified civil engineers includes specialists in water engineering and this MSc programme helps redress this imbalance by providing graduates with an advanced knowledge and skill base to equip them for senior industry roles.
Brunel’s MSc in Water Engineering is unique in providing specialist knowledge on the critical sub-topics of water and wastewater management and engineering, desalination systems, building water services engineering, industrial waste water management, and water in health care.
The programme demonstrates the links between theory and practice by including input from our industrial partners and through site visits. This is a key aspect for establishing a competitive and high added value course that provides adequate links with industry.
Features of the course include:
Students’ skills in gathering and understanding complex information from a variety of sources (including engineering, scientific and socio-economic information) will be developed in an advanced research methods module.
Issues relating to risk and health and safety will be introduced in the research methods module and built on in specialist modules.
Generic modules in financial and project management will underpin specialist modules focusing on water engineering topics.
Real problem-solving examples – starting from basic principles, to the identified problem, the solution, the implementation process and was implemented and the end result.
Real case studies – demonstrating how environmental and economic sustainability is considered within civil engineering, particularly in water resources management.
Problems associated with water resources, access, distribution and quality are amongst the most important global issues in this century. Water quality and scarcity issues are being exacerbated by rising populations, economic growth and climate change
Brunel's programme in Water Engineering aims to develop world class and leading edge experts on water sustainability who are able to tackle the industry’s complex challenges at a senior level. During the programme you will also learn about the development and application of models that estimate the carbon and water footprint within the energy and food sector.
The MSc is delivered by experienced industry professionals who bring significant practical experience to the course – and the University’s complete suite of engineering facilities and world-class research experience are set up for development and engineering of advanced systems, testing a variety of processes, designs and software tools.
