About

The global challenge of environmental sustainability highlights the need for holistic design and management of complex environmental and technological systems. The Environmental Systems Engineering programme is offered by University College London (UCL).

Overview

This interdisciplinary Master's programme presents environmental issues and technologies within a systems engineering context. Graduates will understand interactions between the natural environment, people, processes and technologies to develop sustainable solutions. The Environmental Systems Engineering programme is offered by University College London (UCL).

Students will develop an understanding of systems engineering and environmental engineering. 

Environmental engineering is a multidisciplinary branch of engineering concerned with devising, implementing and managing solutions to protect and restore the environment within an overall framework of sustainable development. Systems engineering is the branch of engineering concerned with the development and management of large complex systems.

Teaching and learning

The programme is delivered through lectures, seminars, tutorials, laboratory classes and projects. 

The individual and group projects in the synthesis element involve interaction with industrial partners, giving students real-life experience and contacts for the future. Assessment is through written examination, coursework, presentations, and group and individual projects.
