There is a growing need for qualified professionals with expertise in environmental modelling. The UCL Environmental Modelling MSc is a new multidisciplinary degree that provides rigorous technical and scientific training for the next generation of environmental modelling professionals. What and how will I learn? You will gain a well-round training in the role, implementation and application of models in environmental science. Core modules provide a critical perspective on model-based science, and introduce core computational and numerical methods. The course is contextualised with reference to the challenges of understanding both natural and human-induced changes to a variety of environmental systems. Degree Structure Core modules Models in Environmental Science The Anthropocene Analytical and Numerical Methods Scientific Computing Options CHOOSE FOUR FROM: Climate Modelling Coastal Change Environmental GIS Impacts of Climate Change on Hydro-Ecological Systems Science and Politics of Climate Change Surface Water Modelling Terrestrial Carbon: Monitoring and Modelling Dissertationreport All students undertake an independent research project which culminates in a dissertation of approximately 15,000 words and an oral presentation. The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials, and laboratory and computer-based practical classes. Assessment is through independent project work, practical-based and written coursework, and the dissertation.

The Environmental Modelling MSc is run by UCL Geography, which enjoys an outstanding international reputation for its research and teaching. Research groups contributing to the MSc include those concerned with Environmental Modelling Environmental Change and Environment, Landscape and Society. The programme brings together the strong expertise in the department in environmental modelling, climate science, and science and policy debates, offering a distinctive blend of fundamental model-based science and modelling applications, delivered from both natural and social science perspectives. UCL expertise in the field encompasses state-of-the-art global and regional general circulation and ocean models, advanced hydrodynamic and hydrological simulations, palaeoclimate reconstruction over geological to recent historical timescales, and earth observation-derived vegetation and carbon cycle modelling. Your career The programme has been designed to provide an ideal foundation for PhD research, or for employment with environmental monitoring and protection agencies, industry and environmental consultancies. Entry requirements A minimum of an upper second-class Bachelor's degree in a relevant subject (e.g. Environmental Science, Geography, Oceanography, Engineering, Mathematics, Physics or Biology) from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Applicants with relevant professional experience will also be considered. How to apply You may choose to apply online or download application materials, for details visit http:www.ucl.ac.ukprospective-studentsgraduate-studyapplication-admission Applications are accepted throughout the year, but you are advised to apply as early as possible due to competition for places. Those applying for scholarship funding (particularly overseas applicants) should take note of application deadlines. Who can apply? This MSc is designed to appeal to students looking to obtain a sound appreciation of a model-based approach to environmental science and management. It will appeal not only to those with backgrounds in environmental sciences but also to those with a background in other sciences or engineering who wish to develop their skills in an environmental science context.
