The MSc Environmental Modelling offers a broad curriculum that extends from the technical detail of environmental process modelling, to critical analysis of the role of modelling within decision-making processes, and the relevance of modelling to risk perception and management.
By bridging the divide between science and decision-making across a range of modelling contexts, this course adopts a truly interdisciplinary approach to the subject of environmental modelling. The inclusion of strong vocational and professional elements, in addition to traditional academic approaches is intended to ensure that graduates are equipped to enter a range of environment-related careers.
This course is particularly suited to those who wish to pursue a career with an environmental modelling focus, which is a priority area for environment sector employers in both the UK and abroad. This course will also prepare you to enter a broad range of careers across consultancy, business, research and government organisations. Graduates of this course will also be well placed to continue to a PhD programme.
The dissertation aims to contribute to the body of knowledge in your area by devising and conducting an independent research project. Through independent, self-motivated critical thinking, you are able to develop as a reflective practitioner.
