New research degree on rising sea levels

SOUTHAMPTON UNIVERSITY'S Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering has introduced a Master of Research degree in Environmental engineering for the effects of sea level rise.

The course was developed to provide solutions for the effect of sea level rise caused by global warming. The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council is providing up to 10 fully funded scholarships.

The MRes differs from a conventional MSc in the balance between taught and research components. The first covers methodology and advanced knowledge in the research topic.

The six-month research component is done in collaboration with industry.

There is a significant geotechnical engineering and civil engineering hydraulics content to the programme which is aimed at graduates in civil or environmental engineering. Graduates in other science subjects, such as geography or geology, will also be considered. All applicants should have the equivalent of a 1st class or a 2. 1 honours degree.
