Through theoretical, practical and computational (informatics) training, the Hydrology and Climate Change MSc will enhance your knowledge of the water environment and its management in the context of climate change.
The impact of climate change and past hydrological behaviour means that hydrological and water resource issues have to be looked at in a new way.
This course will encourage you to rethink hydrological problems and solutions in new and innovative ways. This training is quantitative and relevant to the needs of today's water industry.
The course is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) (comprising ICE, IStructE, CIHT and IHIE), as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for students with an Accredited CEng (Partial) BEng Honours degree or Accredited IEng (Full) BEng/BSc Honours degree.
The course is also accredited by the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
