Suitable for engineering, science and geography graduates, the Environmental Engineering MSc will help you develop your career as an environmental engineer. Accredited by CIWEM, CIWM, and IAgrE, this course will equip you with the knowledge and skills required to solve a wide range of environmental engineering challenges, including municipal and toxic waste management and disposal, process emissions, contaminated land and water, waste disposal, and energy and resource recovery. Cranfield offers a unique, postgraduate-only environment, with a teaching team with extensive experience of solving real world environmental challenges.
This course is designed for science, engineering, and geography graduates who are passionate about the protection and improvement of environmental quality alongside enhancing the quality of human life.
You will learn principles of environmental improvements, including the protection of environmental quality at both local, landscape and global scales.
We also welcome graduates currently in employment who are keen to gain further qualifications or to pursue a career change, or an individual with other qualifications and considerable relevant experience.
The modules include lectures and tutorials, and are assessed through examinations and assignments. There is an emphasis on analysis of real problems. Students undertaking the Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) complete the seven modules and the group project. Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) students are required to complete six of the eight modules.
Candidates must possess, or be expected to achieve, a first or second class UK Honours degree in a relevant engineering or science-based discipline, or the international equivalent of these UK qualifications. Other relevant qualifications together with industrial experience may be considered.
If you are an international student you will need to provide evidence that you have achieved a satisfactory test result in an English qualification. Our minimum requirements are as follows:
- IELTS Academic – 6.5 overall
- TOEFL – 92
- Pearson PTE Academic – 65
- Cambridge English Scale – 180

In addition to these minimum scores you are also expected to achieve a balanced score across all elements of the test. We reserve the right to reject any test score if any one element of the test score is too low.
We can only accept tests taken within two years of your registration date (with the exception of Cambridge English tests which have no expiry date).
Applicants who do not already meet the English language entry requirement for their chosen Cranfield course can apply to attend one of our Pre-sessional English for Academic Purposes (EAP) courses. We offer Winter and Summer programmes each year to offer holders.
