Hear live what it’s like to study Flood and Coastal Engineering at Brunel University London.
Flooding affects millions worldwide. It ruins homes, destroys livelihoods and threatens lives. 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 to build a suite of industry led courses, with sponsorship options and work experience to create qualified graduates ready to fill open vacancies.
Join a live interactive broadcast with students on the course and hear first-hand what it’s like and ask any questions you may have.
About the course
We have a range of exciting courses for you to discover. The programme offers a minimum of 20 funded places for the foundation degree and sponsored options also available for the BSc and MSc.
The Foundation Degree is delivered in partnership with HR Wallingford, a renowned independent civil engineering and environmental hydraulics organisation with expertise in flood risk assessment and management. You’ll be introduced to engineering, the environment and flood risk, and your learning will be focused on the flooding hazard across the UK.
This unique structure of the course focuses on hands on experience through placements and a summer school at HR Wallingford, where 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.
After the foundation course you will have the opportunity to progress further with a top-up (Hons) to give you the skills you need to become an ambitious engineer. Followed by the chance to take your career one step further with a Masters in Flood and Coastal Engineering – all sponsored by The Environment Agency.
Is it for me?
The degree aims to equip you with the knowledge and practical experience you need to start a career in flood risk management.
This course is ideal for students interested in a career in engineering, and with a strong environmental emphasis who typically will be studying mathematics, geography, physics or chemistry, or relevant BTECs courses such as Engineering. The course engages students in knowledge, understanding and application of engineering solutions, and is closely aligned to environmental, social and climatic issues affecting our world today.
Learn how to protect communities who are vulnerable to flooding.

About the Environment Agency
We are the Environment Agency. We are the biggest and most wide-ranging environmental regulator in Europe. We work with businesses and communities to protect and improve the environment, for people and wildlife. And the need for our work is becoming ever more important.
We protect and improve the environment across England to:
• reduce the risks to people and properties from flooding
• help businesses and communities adapt to climate change
• reduce pressures on biodiversity
• help businesses to make sure they don’t harm the environment through pollution or taking too much water
• issue licences and permits, and take action against people who don’t take their environmental responsibilities seriously.
None of this is possible without a multi-talented team of professional and dedicated people. And just like the environment we help to care for, we’re home to an incredible diversity of skills and knowledge.
Today, we employ more than 12,000 people throughout England in a wide range of roles. You’ll find leading scientists and prominent geologists alongside public relations professionals, planners and policy advisors. We employ lawyers, enforcement officers and engineers, conservation scientists and marine biologists. And of course we have a wide team of support staff. We employ people at all stages of their career, from recent graduates to experienced leaders and internationally-renowned experts.
Partnership and Strategic Overview Team Member, Environment Agency
My name is Ethan Seagrove and I work for the EA as a Partnership and Strategic Overview Team Member at Welwyn Garden City’s Alchemy Office and study Flood and Coastal Engineering student at Brunel University London.
I have been studying at Brunel for the last 2.5 years with the last half a year being part time study whilst working full time. My job mainly consists of making flood maps for consultants, insurance companies and interested members of the public. I left Chalfonts Community College in 2017 after completing my A-Levels and thanks to the support from this school I managed to join the funded Flood and Coastal Engineering course.
FCRM Workforce and Skills Advisor, Environment Agency
I support the development of Flood Engineers for today, tomorrow and the future; by developing our capacity and building on our capabilities and resilience through our Flood and Coastal Engineering (FaCE) degree programmes. The FaCE programme is sponsored by the EA and delivered by Brunel University London in partnership with HR Wallingford a world-renowned civil engineering and environmental hydraulics organisation; to address the growing need for capable flood engineers.
This new programme started in September 2017 and is a follow on from the programme we previously ran at the University of West of England from 2004 meaning a 16 year legacy. The programme equips students with the knowledge and understanding for a successful career in flood and coastal risk management and addresses the increasing demand for flood engineering professionals.
We currently have 78 students on the programme and over 500 Alumni. A professional programme runs alongside the academic programme. The first two terms of both years are academic study at Brunel University followed by a 6 month placement (April – Sept) at an EA office or risk management authority (RMA). There’s also a residential summer school at HR Wallingford in June/July. On successful completion of the FdSc course, students/trainees have the educational base to apply for Engineering Technician (EngTech) status. And can top-up to the BSc in Flood and Coastal Engineering.
We sponsor a Foundation Degree (FdSc), Bachelors (BSc) and Masters (MSc)
