Responsible management of water and environmental resources is essential in tackling the climate emergency.

You will explore key water treatment processes; drawing upon examples of international and national water reuse technology, key to shaping future water sources. Fieldwork and laboratory practicals present the opportunity to design, perform, analyse and report on appropriate quantitative research and operational studies in the field of water and environmental management.
