Subject

Environmental engineering

The Environmental Management programme provides a unique opportunity to focus on personal interests from within a variety of specialisms from waste management, geographical information systems, contaminated land, social inclusion, enhancing the countryside, energy efficiency and transport policy.

The programme is accredited by the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

Environmental matters are now a key consideration for any company. Environmental Management graduates understand the impact on the environment of construction and regeneration and the need for the effective management of waste, energy, land resources and social issues.

Our taught modules reflect these key issues and students are ready to step into the environmental roles that employers increasingly demand.

Students have the opportunity to carry out a work placement in Year 3 either in the UK or in Europe. There are also opportunities for industrial placements in India and America.

Do you want to be in demand? This might be the degree for you! We are officially short of civil engineers, and so around two thirds of civil engineering graduates start jobs specifically as civil engineers, and starting salaries are well over £25k last year. Demand for civil engineers and related jobs - we're short of all of them - means that good graduates have plenty of options directly related to their degree when they graduate. This is a subject where work experience can be very helpful in getting a job and many students do work for engineering companies while they take their degrees.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
