Deepen your understanding of the key principles that underpin the assessment and management of contaminated and polluted environments. You'll have access to controlled environment facilities, as well as specialised laboratories and instrumentation for work in molecular ecology and biochemistry, environmental chemistry, physics and stable and radioisotopes. The skills you develop will support a career in environmental consultancy, remediation, air-quality monitoring, and contaminated land management.

The course includes a dedicated, free-of-charge residential field class that provides the opportunity to put your theoretical knowledge into practice. You'll gain practical experience of contaminated site investigation and present your findings to an expert panel, made up of a mixture of clients from industry and academics.
