Overview

Key facts

The Advanced Water Management course builds on our 30 year legacy in Environmental Water Management. It includes contemporary issues and innovations in water management and a unique integrated skills training programme to better prepare students for a challenging career in water.

Managing water is one of society’s greatest challenges. What was once an abundant natural resource now requires careful management to ensure its availability and quality for future generations. Developed in partnership with leading organisations in the water sector, the Advanced Water Management MSc will prepare you for a successful and rewarding career optimising the use of water resources, in the water industry, government, consultancy, and the charitable sector.

Why this course?

At the UK’s only exclusively postgraduate university, you will benefit from the unique experience of working with researchers whose primary purpose is to support the needs of their sector. All components of the Advanced Water Management course are designed with the same end goal in mind: to produce the best graduates for jobs in water resources, hydrology, water quality, habitat conservation and creation, and flood risk management.

To achieve this, you will first reinforce your knowledge of topics and methods in four core areas (hydrology and modelling, water quality and ecology, drought and flood risk management and water management at urban and catchment scales). You will then integrate this learning and apply it to a real-world problem in the group project. Over a 10-week period, you will work in a team of 6-8 students from a range of Cranfield MSc courses on a consultancy project, handling all stages of project design and delivery from initial meetings to scope out the work to the final report and presentation. Topics vary yearly as they respond to the needs of our industrial partners, but typically relate to water resources and quality, aquatic ecology and flood risk management. Finally, you will delve into a single topic for your individual thesis project, strengthening your skills in project design and management; data collection, analysis and interpretation; and report writing, all of which are essential for your future career.
