Course Description

RESEARCH AREAS MPhil PhD supervision is normally available in the following research areas: industrial wastewater treatment anaerobic digestion manipulation of the fate of micro-pollutants pollutant sequestration bioremediation risk assessment sanitation and low-cost water supplies for developing countries waste stabilisation ponds constructed wetlands minewater treatment carbon neutral initiatives and geothermal energy. Our microbiological research has a strong emphasis on understanding and engineering biological processes using ecological theory, underpinned by leading-edge exploration of molecular techniques (for example fluorescent in situ hybridisation, quantitative PCR, and denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis). To maintain our position at the forefront of environmental engineering research, we are constantly developing new areas of expertise. Up-to-date information on our latest research can be found on the Civil Engineering and Geosciences website. Staff research profiles can also be found on this website, including Professor P Younger (Professor of Environmental Technologies and Geothermal Energy), Professor T Curtis (Professor of Environmental Engineering), Professor I Head (Professor of Environmental Biogeochemistry), Professor D Graham (Visiting Professor from the University of Kansas), Dr P Sallis, Dr D Werner, Dr R Davenport, Dr C Mota, Dr A Jarvis, Dr J Amezaga, Dr C Paterson, and others. RESEARCH DEGREE TRAINING AND SKILLS DEVELOPMENT Above all we are looking for applicants with an enthusiasm for research in the field of environmental engineering. We have extensive contacts in the UK and overseas to enable research to be carried out in collaboration with industry and government agencies. Research projects are supervised by staff with a wide range of industrial and academic experience. In addition to an academic supervisory team, all research students are supported by a programme of training in research and personal development skills. Details of available PhD projects can be found on our website.
