Module overview

This module examines current topics in environmental and engineering geology – the practical application of the principles of geology/Earth Science in the solving of environmental and engineering problems. Through a mix of lecture, discussion and practical sessions, you will cover various aspects of environmental geochemistry, environmental radioactivity, engineering geology and hydrogeology/hydrology, and show how the interconnections between these and other academic areas (oceanography, biology, geomorphology, civil engineering etc.) allow the better understanding and management of major and complex contemporary issues such as Nuclear decommissioning, Geoengineering/Carbon Capture Technology, Urban regeneration, Waste Management, and water resource and public health / environmental protection. The module develops a range of wider skills relevant to employers, including numeracy and analysis skills, problem solving and group working.
