Program Description


The Advanced Water Management course builds on our 30 year legacy in Environmental Water Management. It includes contemporary issues and innovations in water management and a unique integrated skills training programme to better prepare students for a challenging career in water.

Managing water is one of society’s greatest challenges. What was once an abundant natural resource now requires careful management to ensure its availability and quality for future generations. Developed in partnership with leading organisations in the water sector, the Advanced Water Management MSc will prepare you for a successful and rewarding career optimising the use of water resources, in the water industry, government, consultancy, and the charitable sector.

Course structure

The Advanced Water Management programme is made up of three components: a formal taught component comprising eight modules (40%), Group Project (20%) and Individual Thesis Project (40%).

Individual project

You will be able to select your individual project in consultation with the thesis project coordinators. The individual project provides you with the opportunity to demonstrate your ability to carry out independent research, think and work in an original way, contribute to knowledge, and overcome genuine problems. You have the choice to work on projects sponsored by industry or related to current Research Council, EU or industry-funded research.

Group project

A unique component of a Cranfield University taught MSc is the group project. Group projects are usually sponsored by industry partners and provide students with the experience of working on real challenges in the workplace along with skills in team working, managing resources and developing reporting and presentation skills. Experience gained is highly valued by both students and prospective employers.

Future career

Environmental Water Management graduates are found all over the UK, EU and the world working at all levels of the water industry, government, environmental and engineering consultancy, and the charitable sector.
