5) Scholarship For MSc/PgDip Surveying and Land/Environmental Management
Surveying roles encompasses all activities concerned with measuring and recording information about the world that surrounds us.
A surveyor can work in many different environments for a variety of reasons; building, residential, commercial, environmental and quantity. Today, surveying holds just as much relevance, yet the demand has drastically grown bigger due to an enhanced interest in developing and managing the physical world.
This Scholarship programme is taught by the internationally renowned Camborne School of Mines (CSM), a combined world-class mining school and geoscience department. With accreditation from both the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the Chartered Institute of Civil Engineering Surveyors, this MSc is recognised by professional associations around the world.
Whilst there are other MSc programmes available with the word surveying in their title, there is no other comparable programme in the UK.
Content covered in this programme is very unique as aside from covering the fundamentals of surveying, it delves into geomatics, minerals and environmental topics, equipping students with distinctive practical and specialist skills.
This varied programme means that upon graduation, our students are not limited to surveying careers in the built environment, and as a result they are recognised and pursued by industry for their diverse knowledge and skills. If you are interested in finding out more, feel free to get in touch with Us.
You can either study the course full time over a year or part-time over 3 years.
The compulsory Modules comprise of; Professional Development, Health and Safety in the Extractive Industry, Land Surveying, Project Management, Advanced Surveying, Mine Wastes: Principles, Monitoring and Remediation, GIS For Surveyors, Law for Surveyors, Land Management, Project and Dissertation
This duration of this programme is 12 months full time; up to 36 months part-time. The Deadline for receipt of Scholarship application is 7th January, 2019. Register through the application link below.
The increase in environmental regulation and concerns globally about climate change, distinction of species, deforestation, loss of green belt and more has lead to an increased focus about how best to manage environmental issues longer term.
Many organisations across all sectors have found successful collaborations and partnerships have not only helped them manage risk but improve their learning’s within environmental management to improve learnings in their own discipline as a result.
As population increases there is more demand on planning to provide an effective level of environmental understanding and knowledge. Food production now has to be carefully managed due to climatic and weather challenges to ensure we create the best scenarios for sustainability.
Often the relationship between planning and environment has been fractious due to economic benefit arguments or other planning benefits; however the challenges of changes to the environment which have been highly publicised more recently mean that we need to innovate and work together for our future.
This scholarship combines multiple disciplines to give you a contemporary environmental context of development from a scientific and social perspective with practical tools to inform decision making looking at all important aspects such as planning, economics, environment, research, governance and partnership working.
The University of Aberdeen is offering two scholarships of £3,350 towards Tuition Fees for the MSc Environmental Partnership Management.
