Sustainable Engineering Management for International Development (MSc) at Swansea University

Swansea University
Masters (MSc)

1 year
Full time

Course description:

The MSc in Sustainable Engineering Management for International Development at Swansea University is a 1-year taught full-time Masters degree programme, which aims to improve quality of life through engineering solutions. Most of the world’s construction is located in developing countries, where the environments face challenges such as extreme poverty and food shortages, man made climate change and irreversible loss of biodiversity. This programme will help train students to be part of a new generation of practitioners who can address such challenges through practical engineering solutions and build resilience for local communities in the face of rapid urbanisation.

Throughout this 1-year course you will concentrate on “applied” sustainable engineering in a real life environment, involving interaction with real stakeholders in international development. You will gain a multidisciplinary appreciation of how theory can be applied in the real world, learning how cross collaboration with the College of Arts and Humanities and the Prince’s Foundation created the course, and why this is relevant.
