Our Water and Environmental Treatment Processes specialisation will provide you with an opportunity to engage with two important global challenges: the provision of safe drinking water, and the management of urban and industrial pollution.

While exploring a range of new and emerging technologies in water purification and resource recovery, you will develop an in-depth understanding of the water and waste treatment issues in a number of key industries and learn how to select, adapt, evaluate and justify particular treatment options.

Graduate opportunities

As a graduate of our Water and Environmental Treatment Processes specialisation, you will be able to develop a career in a diverse industrial context, including water and wastewater treatment, minerals processing and atmospheric air protection.

You may pursue a career in research or with industry and government departments assessing the environmental, technical and economic impact of established and emerging technologies.
