Program description

**This course is accredited by the Institution of Environmental Sciences (IES) and the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM)**.

Our Master's course in Environmental Management addresses the management principles necessary for the successful implementation of sound environmental management practice and sustainable development for a healthy planet.

The course develops an understanding of how human activity can affect the environmental and applies this to both the legal framework and management decision-making activities. The course seeks to raise your ability to understand and analyse environmental problems at Master's level, in order to develop long-term sustainable solutions.

You will obtain a solid foundation in environmental management and legislation, planetary health and sustainable development, and then can choose to focus on one of three themes: chemical regulation and management; pollution and monitoring; or clean technology and the environment.

This course can be taken with or without a Professional Development work placement. Both options are accredited by the Institution of Environmental Sciences (IES) and the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM).

•You will be trained in critical analysis of legislative and management aspects of the environment.
•You will develop an understanding of the big picture as well as strong attention to detail – essential skills when it comes to critical analysis at Master’s level.
•We aim for you to leave the course with an ability to approach environmental management and legislation with an investigative attitude, to be innovative to assess a wide range of problems in the modern environment, and to explore solutions.

The course places a lot of emphasis on individual student development but also involves team-working and presentations to develop your interpersonal skills.
Who is this course suitable for?

This MSc is appropriate for UK/EU and International graduates or those with appropriate experience who wish to develop a career in the environmental industry and public bodies with environmental management and environmental legislation.

Successful graduates are expected to take up roles as environmental managers, environmental analysts, environmental practitioners with an emphasis on environmental monitoring and pollution control, carbon data analyst, energy manager and technical positions in environmental consultancies.

The course combines academic and applied aspects to provide skills appropriate for entry into all professions related to environmental assessment and management.

MSc (with Professional Development)

Having professional experience in your field of study makes you a much more appealing candidate to future employers. Our aim, therefore, is to integrate a work placement (or Professional Development phase) into the programme. Staff members will closely work with the Professional Development Centre to negotiate agreements with public, private and charitable sector organisations to allow our students to work on various projects related to environmental issues. We are well connected with many relevant organisations through our research activities, particularly water companies, environmental consultancies and government departments and agencies.

The Environment Agency has confirmed that they will be pleased to provide Professional Development opportunities to our MSc students. Further opportunities exist internationally with the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).

There are also exciting opportunities for students to combine environmental science with entrepreneurship through an existing relationship between Brunel and the Central Research Laboratory.**
