MSc programmes by distance learning

Our MSc programmes were devised over fifty years ago. Even with this long history, the programmes evolve continually, led by our research and our vast practical experience in the field. Changing developments and priorities in our sector also feed into the programmes so that they remain constantly relevant and are a pivotal stepping stone for professionals seeking to advance their careers in water engineering and management. Through distance learning, programmes can be built module by module, and can be studied at different levels from any location in the world. Take a look at the video to get a flavour of what is on offer.
