Industry partners

The Flood and Coastal Engineering degrees at Brunel have heavy input from two industry experts, the Environment Agency and HR Wallingford.

The Environment Agency have plans to deliver 1500 projects to better protect 300,000 homes from flooding by 2021. Due to this, they have sponsored Brunel's Flood and Coastal Engineering courses to increase the number of talented engineers who are needed to support communities across the UK.

This sponsorship comes with 20 funded places for our foundation degree, and funded spots on the BSc top-up and MSc for those who secure employment with the Environment Agency or a Risk Management Authority.

Teaching by experts in renowned hydraulics facilities

HR Wallingford is based in Oxfordshire, and their base holds host to the UK's leading facilities in flood and coastal hydraulic equipment. As a Flood and Coastal Engineering foundation degree student, you will spend time within each summer break learning from experts at their headquarters where you will receive hands-on experience with the hydraulics facilities.

The teaching and training input from the Environment Agency and HR Wallingford on Brunel's Flood and Coastal Engineering courses guarantees real-world experience at all levels of study, creating qualified and knowledgeable graduates.
