Hear live what it’s like to study a sponsored degree in Flood and Coastal Engineering at Brunel University London.

Flooding affects millions worldwide. It ruins homes, destroys livelihoods and threatens lives. Climate change is causing more adverse weather and the future needs more engineers to help mitigate the risks. That could be you.

The Environment Agency has partnered with Brunel University London and HR Wallingford – a renowned independent civil engineering and environmental hydraulics organisation-  to offer a sponsored foundation degree in Flood and Coastal Engineering. Designed to create flood engineers for the future.

Join a live interactive broadcast with the course director, Dr Andrew Fox, current student Rhodri Richards and Paul Cross from the Environment agency. Hear first-hand about what it’s like and ask any questions you may have.

About the course

The course is accredited by the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) and is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (representing the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Structural Engineers, the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation, and the Institute of Highway Engineers).

Studied over two years, you’ll be introduced to engineering, the environment and flood risk, and your learning will be focused on the flooding hazard across the UK. The unique structure of the course focuses on applying your learning with hands-on experience through two six month paid work placements at the Environment Agency and one week at HR Wallingford’s summer school. You will be mentored by industry professionals and gain real life experience on what it’s like to be an engineer in the water industry.

Only 20 sponsored places are available for entry in September 2021.

Is it for me?

This course is ideal for students interested in a career in engineering and the environment and if you have studied maths or physics or engineering at A-Level or have a relevant BTEC diploma. If you have not studied maths, an entry test can be provided as part of your application.

The benefits of this degree:

  • Learn the engineering theories and methods in flood risk management
  • Tuition fees are paid for by the Environment Agency
  • Earn £1,000 a month on work placements
  • Access top facilities at HR Wallingford and Brunel University London

  • Dr Andrew Fox

    Flood and Coastal Engineering Course Director

    I am a Chartered Civil Engineer and my career has been split almost equally between working in industry and working in academia. I started in the UK water industry working on projects in the highways and housing sectors. Then ventured overseas and engaged in a number of infrastructure development and post-disaster recovery projects in Africa, the Caribbean and Eastern Mediterranean regions.  I’ve worked at a variety of levels, often managing interdisciplinary design and construction teams.

    I’ve also enjoyed contributing to many research projects, such as enhancing community resilience to flood risk and working in higher education teaching construction and disaster management principles to engineering students.

    I look forward to working with students at Brunel University London and using my knowledge and industry experience to help develop engineers for the future.

  • Rhodri Richards

    Flood and Coastal Engineering student

    I’m currently studying Flood and Coastal engineering at Brunel University London.

    My interest in studying the degree came from many different experiences growing up, I live in a rural area of Wales where the natural environment is all around me, including the Brecon Beacons National Park where I completed my Gold Duke of Edinburgh expedition.

    I experienced flooding locally, although it didn’t have an impact on my home it did stop me going to school as the access roads were flooded. I also had the opportunity of visiting the Hoover Dam on a school Geography trip in the black canyon of the Colorado river, on the border between the U.S. states of Nevada and Arizona – designed to control floods, provide water irrigation and produce hydroelectric power -which really inspired my interest in engineering as a career path.

    I did my A-levels in maths, physics and ICT. The Flood and Coastal Engineering programme has been a hands-on learning experience and provided great opportunities for work placements. I have worked for the Environment Agency in the Partnership and Strategic Overview team and as a Lead Local Flood Authority for South Gloucestershire Council.

    I am continuing to work towards helping design the best engineering solutions to protect communities from flooding and hope to inspire future engineers like you to make a difference.
