You will develop your expertise, gaining valuable experience through our Employability Challenge Weeks, our Leadership Challenge programme, Skill Development and Professional Development Work placement as well as various real life projects. These will give you the chance to apply your skills to innovative and deliver exciting projects.
You’ll also receive industry talks, workshops and guidance on how to complete application forms and how to write effective CVs. Our degree provides a route into many civil and environmental engineering careers and supported by the Civil Engineering Industrial Advisory Board.
Graduates from these courses will be able to work for government departments, environmental regulators (Environment Agency, Natural Resources Wales and Scottish Environmental Protection Agency), local authorities, international development agencies and non-governmental organisations. Graduates will also be equipped to work for water, waste and energy companies and environmental and engineering consultancies such as Arup, Mott Macdonald, Atkins, JBA, Hyder, and Costain, as well as research organisations like HR Wallingford and CEH.
Our Environmental Engineering courses are accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators – JBM (the Institution of Civil Engineers - ICE and the Institution of Structural Engineers - IStructE) on behalf of the Engineering Council.
The BEng course is accredited for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as an Incorporated Engineer and partially meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Whereas the MEng course is accredited by ICE for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Therefore, these courses are currently seeking accreditation by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM).
In addition, if you take the Professional Development Training option, the opportunities to become a professionally qualified Chartered Engineer (CEng) in the environmental engineering field are high.
