Course summary

Overview

What is the impact of deforestation? Are everyday chemicals passing into our rivers? How can science help us to understand the effects of our actions? Brunel’s Environmental Sciences MRes will provide you with the skills and knowledge to really make a difference to the future of our planet.

This course is designed to provide you with research skills and an in-depth understanding of research methodology with specific relation to environmental sciences. You’ll build your scientific and technical expertise and focus on areas such as ecology, environmental toxicology and environmental health. You’ll study taught modules and undertake an extended research project which will be tailored to your research interests.

Brunel’s MRes students receive the same support as PhD students. Your supervisory team for your research project will consist of a principal supervisor and a secondary supervisor to facilitate cross disciplinary research. You’ll benefit from the expertise of our award-winning academic team of leading environmental scientists and receive support from specialist technical staff in a well-equipped research environment.

Careers and your future

After completing the course, you’ll be equipped with the skills to pursue a range of environmental careers. You may wish to work as an environmental researcher, an environmental consultant, an environmental analyst or perhaps start up your own consultancy or business. If you’re considering progression to PhD level, then an MRes is the perfect stepping stone as you’ll graduate with an in-depth knowledge and understanding of research.

Some of Brunel’s graduates have started their own businesses supporting SMEs to remove toxic chemicals from wastewater. There are opportunities in business, industry, education or government and local councils.
