This course has been developed to train future energy engineers to apply and design processes for reducing environmental damage at source to air, water and land. It concentrates on techniques used to reduce the environmental impact of industrial processes, energy production and transport, including the reduction of air pollution, and wider issues such as waste management, land contamination, water pollution and environmental law. There are excellent career opportunities with environmental agencies and consultancies in industries such as energy production, waste management, minerals and chemicals.
This course is taught in the School of Process, Environmental and Materials Engineering, which is ranked highly in the league tables.
UCAS Code: H220 (MEng, BEng) or H225 (BEng)
