Population increase, urbanisation, natural hazards, and climate change are leading to complex challenges in how we manage our limited water resources and environment.

Studying this subject will train you to integrate the built environment with the natural environment to help supply clean, quality water to households, agriculture, and industry, and process wastewater in a less environmentally damaging way.
