Module overview

This module examines current topics in environmental and engineering geology – the practical application of geoscience principles 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 and radioactivity, hydrology/hydrogeology, and engineering geology and show how the interconnections between these and other academic areas (oceanography, biology, geography, geomorphology, civil engineering etc.) allow the better understanding and management of major and complex contemporary issues such as Nuclear Decommissioning, Water Resource, Offshore Renewable Energy Development, Carbon Capture and Storage, Urban Regeneration, Waste Management, Public Health and Environmental Protection. The module develops a range of wider skills relevant to employers, including numeracy and analysis skills, problem solving and group working.
