Our Environmental Sciences graduates go onto great things and they make a difference that really matters.
Carlton Cummins (Sustainability, Entrepreneurship and Design MSc, 2016), is co-founder of Aceleron who created the process to extract value from used lithium ion batteries which provide low cost battery packs for a growing number of emerging markets.
Carlton’s innovative solution to the huge waste management problem created by supposedly ‘dead’ lithium batteries have seen him win a number of accolades including being named one of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 European science entrepreneurs and winner of the Shell LiveWIRE Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
The research infrastructure at Brunel, including the labs at CSEF and ETC, the support to publish open access journal articles and participation in research conferences definitely contributed to me landing a job at Whirlpool.
I wanted to upskill myself and Sustainability, Entrepreneurship and Design MSc was the perfect course because it was an amalgamation of three areas that are really important to me.

The mix between sustainability, entrepreneurship and design is truly unique. I would recommend Brunel to others because of the amazing teachers who are passionate about their field and because of all the opportunities you get through Brunel.
