Here we are at the beginning of the summer. Another semester over. The students are busy preparing for exams. And for our Masters students, they are also starting to look ahead to the summer when they will be immersing themselves in their dissertation research. For those of you thinking about doing an MSc at Surrey, I thought this would be a good opportunity to share some of the great work that our students have been doing on the MSc in Water and Environmental Engineering. One of the electives that is available to students is the Regulation and Management module. Through this module students develop their understanding of what is required to effectively manage water supplies to provide reliably high quality drinking water, engaging in discussions with experts from the Drinking Water Inspectorate and the UK water industry.
At the end of the module, students have an opportunity to further investigate a topic that interests them through preparing an article or a policy brief on the subject. Here are three examples of the students work (reproduced here with their permission):
