With this double degree, you can tackle environmental issues with knowledge across both engineering and science. With specialist skills in the social, applied and natural sciences, you'll be well prepared to find solutions to pressing environmental issues. With a strong practical focus, you'll develop skills in the planning, design, management, construction and maintenance of engineering projects as well as a solid foundation in biological, physical and social sciences and critical analysis. This is your opportunity to make a real difference to the big environmental issues facing the planet, bringing a fresh perspective and proven skills to the challenges ahead. Industry and expert connections From year one, you'll be learning from industry experts and like-minded teachers. Hands-on experience is key to this double degree, and in your final year you can enhance your knowledge through an industry-based project or placement. Graduate outcomes You'll have several options available when you graduate as either an engineer or an environmental scientist. This degree could lead to a career in civil, environmental, mechanical or electrical engineering. Your environmental science degree will offer up rewarding careers such as an environmental officer, environmental consultant, wildlife biologist, conservation ecologist or environmental chemist.
