What will I learn?

Why combine Environmental Engineering with Mathematical and Computer Sciences?

Environmental engineers work to combat the negative impacts of human activity on the environment. They reduce waste, promote eco-design and strive to improve our environmental systems.

With maths and computer science underpinning the high technology developments in this field, specialised expertise offers huge benefits.

What will you do?

Build technical skills for tackling problems around water, energy, food, pollution, waste, and natural hazards.

Discover the connections between infrastructure, environment, society, and economy in the developed and developing world.

Gain fundamental statistical and mathematical knowledge.

Study complex computer systems and theories.

Complete an eight-week practical engineering experience.

Apply your learning to real-world projects based on industry needs.

This is a 5-year double, not combined degree. You’ll graduate with two separate parchments, a greater scope of career prospects and a competitive edge in the job market.

Career Readiness

The employment outlook for environmental engineers is excellent. Global concern is rising about water resources, energy, food security, pollution, waste, natural hazards and climate change.
