Description:Flooding is a natural phenomenon affecting millions worldwide. It ruins homes, destroys farmland and threatens lives. Policy focuses on risk reduction through flood warning and defence systems. With research showing that floods will become more frequent, there is a shortage of professionals who can manage the associated risks.

Developed in partnership with the Environment Agency as a top-up for our Foundation Degree, this course is accredited by the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM). Learning through a combination of intense residential and distance learning, you will enhance your knowledge of structural design and geotechnics, and how to mitigate risk through environmental assessment and strategic management. This is while developing your skills in hydraulic modelling, flood estimation and engineering design.
