Course summary

Course Overview

In partnership with JBA Consulting, a specialist water environment and flood risk management consultancy, we have developed a part-time programme for water and environmental practitioners focused on the application of technical skills and best practice techniques.

Accredited by the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM), the programme aims to strengthen your career development prospects in the growing flood and coastal risk management sector.

You will have the opportunity to study eight taught modules (120 credits) and undertake a research project (60 credit module). The modules cover a range of fundamental and innovative topics and are taught jointly with JBA Consulting, the Environment Agency and the NERC Centre for Ecology and Hydrology. By drawing upon their expertise, you will develop your specialist skills and experience, alongside insight into the latest ideas and practices within the UK and international flood and coastal risk management sector. These modules may be studied over a two to five year period, to suit your employment commitments.

As part of your study, you will be able to attend field trips and will complete a major project, allowing you to develop and enhance your research, data-handling, evaluation and report writing skills, as well as your ability to communicate and present complex topics to a range of audiences. These highly transferable skills will be invaluable in your career development and progression. The major project will also be an opportunity for you to demonstrate your independent learning, as you put theory into practice and bring together all of the skills, knowledge and experience you have gained. Your project may be undertaken on a topic pertinent to your current employment.

Undertaking both the taught modules and the research project will ensure you have the breadth and depth of knowledge required to successfully contribute to the developing water sector in the UK and internationally. You will be equipped to make informed decisions and progress in your career.
