Course summary

Course overview

If you are seeking to develop the skills and confidence to address the critical global challenges of climate change and diminishing natural resources, this environmental management programme is for you. Clean energy, water supply, and the effects of anthropogenic changes are crucial issues facing society today and are the fundamental themes in this programme.

[British Council Scholarships for Women in STEM] In a rapidly changing world environmental management has an important role to play in modern society. Fundamentally it is a multi-disciplinary area of study, one which has huge potential to unite disparate areas of knowledge and research, and address key challenges for the earth and human society. The solutions to our problems already exist – how can we make them the mainstream reality? You will explore the world’s dependency on hydrocarbon-based resources, together with strategies and technologies to decarbonise national economies. This course examines the evidence for climate change and the means to communicate it. There is a module devoted to water resources, and you will address the problems of conservation of the natural world as well as the sustainability of our increasingly urbanised society against a background of growing population. The programme develops the problem-solvers and communicators needed to face the enormous challenges of the 21st century - those who can play key roles in driving environmental policies, and in formulating forward-looking strategies in environmental management at corporate, national and global scales.

How you are assessed

Modules are assessed by a variety of methods including examination and in-course assessment with some utilising other approaches such as group work or verbal/poster presentations.

Career opportunities

Successful graduates from this course are well placed to find employment. As an energy and environmental manager, you might find yourself in a role responsible for overseeing the energy and environmental performance of private, public and voluntary sector organisations, as well as in a wide range of engineering industries. Energy and environmental managers examine corporate activities to establish where improvements can be made and ensure compliance with environmental legislation across the organisation. You might be responsible for reviewing the whole operation, carrying out energy and environmental audits and assessments, identifying and resolving energy and environmental problems and acting as agents of change. Your role could include the training of the workforce to develop the ability to recognise their own contributions to improved energy and environmental performance.

Your role may also include the development, implementation and monitoring of energy and environmental strategies, policies and programmes that promote sustainable development at corporate, national or global levels.
