About

This one-year MRes in Climate Change Adaptation at University of Strathclyde aims to provide advanced study in key issues related to climate change and global warming, and how infrastructure will need to adapt.

Overview

The Climate Change Adaptation at University of Strathclyde links with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and in particular the different indicators associated with SDG13 on Climate Action. The course is largely research and project-based but there is also a taught element to it.

This course is designed to cater mainly for graduates with an engineering education, and employees of public and private sector companies who wish to upgrade their skills to be able to tackle the complex issues relating to the current climate crisis, circular economy goals, and the design of engineering options for mitigating environmental impacts and promoting sustainable development.

The course is ideal for you if:

  • you're looking for an alternative to an MSc
  • you're interested in carrying out shorter research projects
  • you wish to tailor your studies to suit your own research interests and career objectives

An MRes takes one year full-time or two years part-time to complete. Part-time study is only available to UK students.

Careers

An MRes will significantly enhance your CV and improve future employment prospects.

During your studies you'll develop a range of transferable skills that are relevant to careers in industry, academia and the public sector.

In addition, our MRes will develop your communication skills, critical analysis and presentation skills as well as giving you experience of conference attendance and working with large bodies of complex material. An MRes can also be used as a stepping stone for students wishing to continue to an MPhil or PhD, either as a precursor or initial component of the research.
