University of Nottingham Malaysia
The MSc Environmental Engineering course is aimed at students who have an interest in environmental engineering but initially undertook a more mainstream undergraduate programme. It is ideal for those who want to specialise in environmental engineering after graduating from their undergraduate degree or after working in the environmental engineering field. The syllabus covers a number of traditional subjects which you can choose from; such as air pollution, contaminated land and water treatment. The compulsory part of the programme concentrates on developing and improving research, teamwork and communication skills in a context relevant to environmental engineers.
Why choose this course?
The Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering is a leading centre for the development of industrial processes and applications in energy, sustainability and environmental engineering.
Our taught postgraduate programmes produce high quality engineers who will graduate with the advanced skills and training demanded by industry and organisations all over the world.
You will take a mixture of module choices from a restricted list of traditional environmental engineering subjects and from free choice options from across the campus, enabling you to build your own multidisciplinary syllabus. You will also be required to complete a Group Design Project with relevance to environmental engineering. You must pass all the components in the autumn and spring semesters, comprising 120 credits, to progress to the final stage of the MSc Individual Research Project. The MSc Individual Research Project is worth 60 credits and occupies the entire summer semester.

Where you will learn
Semenyih Campus is 48km from Kuala Lumpur International Airport and just 45 minutes’ drive from the famous city centre with its iconic Petronas Twin Towers. On arrival, you are immersed in the green jungle backdrop that Malaysia provides with wildlife, sunshine and campus lake.
The campus is home to our business, education, science and engineering schools, which sit alongside a sports centre, library and student accommodation. The University has everything a modern day student could wish for with the added bonus of being located in central Asia allowing you to travel further afield in your free time.
Public transport is plentiful with free shuttle services operating on some routes. Taxi/Grab services in Malaysia are very reasonable and used widely by the student community.
