Throughout the World, the issue of water scarcity, water security, water economics and health and sanitation all rely on high quality hydrogeology knowledge. Hydrogeology is a key component of water resources management required to meet the UN Millennium Development Goals.
Hydrogeology is a key component of water resources management required to meet the UN Millennium Development Goals and the Decade Water for Life as well as meeting the targets required from the European Water Framework Directive (and daughter directive) and as a subset of Geotechnical Engineering. This MSc will prepare students as functional hydrogeologists to meet the needs of industry, regulators, government and consultants throughout the UK, Europe and globally, through linked research and projects, the needs of the Middle East and of the SADC (South African Developing Countries) such as Malawi, Mozambique and Tanzania.
The Department of Civil Engineering at Strathclyde has one of the strongest Geo-Engineering foci of any related department in the UK, and is currently working with the British Geological Survey (BGS) to develop hydrogeology in sub-Saharan Africa.
All our MSc courses* are accredited by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for Chartered Engineer (CEng) Status under the provisions of UK-SPEC. (*except MSc Environmental Health which is accredited by REHIS.)
