The MSc portfolio within our Environment programme has recently been reviewed. This is to ensure that Cranfield courses are attractive to prospective students and to make sure that the courses titles and student learning outcomes are relevant to future employers.
This course aims to meet a clear industry need for high-skilled graduates in waste and resource management. Cranfield aim to develop high calibre postgraduates with the breadth and depth of advanced technical and professional knowledge in waste and resource technology and management.
The aim of the course is to develop high calibre postgraduates with the breadth and depth of advanced technical and professional knowledge in waste and resource technology and management. The course will: – Provide an holistic approach to waste and resource management in response to the proposed waste circular economy. – Select and apply appropriate existing and emerging technologies that can achieve lower waste production and landfill diversion via an integrated and cross-disciplinary approach to sustainable waste management – Equip students to select and apply scientific, technical and engineering principles – Enable the application of scientific, technical and engineering principles, economic consequences and risks of waste management options as best practice. – Apply acquired knowledge to team working and independent problem solving.
The MSc in Waste and Resource Management offers a tremendous range of career opportunities in the waste and resource sector. As part of the taught course, there are many opportunities to learn transferable skills that potential employers require.
The course comprises seven assessed modules, a group project and an individual research project. Awarded for excellence Some of our students work have been judged by the most respected experts in the sector. These long-standing and well-respected awards are given for outstanding achievement in the sustainability, resource and waste industry – * Ed Cook was awarded the Roger Perry Award for his thesis titled ‘Optimising the non-biological outputs of mechanical-biological treatment facilities’ by CIWM’s Sustainability & Resource Awards 2015 * Harriet Emkes was also awarded the Roger Perry Award in 2013 * Russel Harwood was the winner of the Geotech Award in 2010 at the CIWM Professional Awards Ceremony.
Career prospects for students on the Waste and Resource Management course are excellent. The waste management industry is undergoing a change in strategy as a result of the introduction of increasingly arduous legislation, tougher enforcement, and better educated consumers making demands about the environment (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs – DEFRA, 2006 and 2011; Energy and utility skills, 2010). This is stimulating considerable investment by the waste industry in alternative technologies to reduce and reuse waste, rather than rely on simple landfill. This sector therefore has an urgent requirement for well qualified staff with management expertise who can meet the challenges of this future sustainable agenda.
