MSc students

Our support gives students an insight into how methodologies and techniques are applied in industry

We help MSc and MRes students completing their dissertation projects by providing placements, technical expertise and case study data, and by facilitating access to software resources. Students have an opportunity to experience how they will be able to use their skills in a career in the water and environmental sector.  We also support the dissemination and publication of their research.

Each year we also award studentship grants to a small number of students to help towards tuition costs at UK Higher Education Institutions, for MSc and MRes courses. There are more details about the studentship award scheme here.

Poster summaries of some of the MSc projects we have supported are presented below.
