The MSc Waste and Resource Management is accredited by the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management and prepares you for a career in the growing environmental and resource management sector, where there is increasing global demand for skilled graduates.

The global market in environmental goods and services is currently worth about £3 trillion. Global investment attracted by ‘green technologies’ for electrical power generation recently exceeded that for coal and natural gas. This area is being actively promoted in the UK and Scottish context for economic development.

By undertaking this course you will develop core skills in the management of resources, coupled with an understanding of technologies that enhance the sustainable use of natural resources and minimise the environmental impact of economic activities, exploiting value from industrial process by-products and waste materials.
