    Programme Description

    It has been estimated that 98% of the available fresh water in the world is groundwater. Access to this resource is critical in some areas of the world such as the Middle East. Elsewhere, groundwater forms a key part of the water cycle, providing baseflow to rivers supporting fragile ecosystems. In many areas, groundwater resources are threatened by pollution from agricultural and industrial activities.

    There is great demand for highly trained, experienced scientists and engineers with specialist knowledge of groundwater flow and an understanding of the broader water resources and societal contexts. This programme focuses on developing advanced geological skills relevant to groundwater assessment. Students also learn how to apply these skills to the sustainable management of aquifers and of the surface watercourses and ecosystems sustained by discharging groundwater.

    The MSc in Applied Hydrogeology aims to provide opportunities for candidates with first degrees in a range of scientific and engineering disciplines to enhance their knowledge of the nature, occurrence, characterisation and management of ground water, and to provide a theoretical and practical quantitative training and professional development very relevant to the needs of the water and environmental engineering industries.
