Summary

With an uncertain future climate, there's a national demand for a new generation of professionals who'll maintain the UK’s world-leading expertise in managing flood risks. The global flood risk is set to double by 2050 and key organisations including the Environment Agency, local authorities and leading consultancies are experiencing a shortage of talented people with the skills required to build resilience into flood event preparation, response and recovery.

This pioneering new MSc programme from the Energy and Environment Institute builds on the University of Hull’s expertise around the drivers and impacts of flood hazards to understand the application of innovative new approaches to flood risk management and equip you for a career in the expanding flood risk sector.

You will gain practical and academic experience in flood dynamics and catchment management, taught by leading academics and industry experts. You'll learn about different types of flood risk reduction through site visits to pioneering flood protection and management schemes, like ‘Slowing the Flow’ in Pickering and urban water basins protecting the city of Hull. You'll gain experience of flood adaptation and control methods, and learn how flood incidents are managed by multi-agency response units

The Humber region is pioneering the development of resilient communities through internationally recognised initiatives like ‘Living With Water', which has helped Hull become one of the Rockefeller Foundation’s five global cities that demonstrate future water resilience. Your learning will be informed by the Energy and Environment Institute’s research activities and strong links with regional and national flood risk agencies, helping you start a career that contributes to innovative solutions to help our society live with future flood risks.
