If you are interested in studying for a degree with The Open University, you may wish to explore the range of engineering qualifications we offer. You can start from scratch with our BEng (Hons) degree or our integrated MEng degree, or you can take a workplace-based Foundation Degree in Engineering. If you already have a Foundation Degree or an HND, you can top it up to a BEng with our conversion programme. All our undergraduate engineering qualifications explore the fundamentals of engineering, with opportunities to focus on engineering design, environmental technologies, energy and sustainability, electronics, or mathematical methods.

Alternatively, you may wish to investigate our BSc (Hons) Natural Sciences degree, which allows you to choose a general science study route or to follow a more specialised route in biology, chemistry, physics, Earth sciences, environmental science, or planetary science.

If you already have an undergraduate degree and would like to extend your knowledge further, you might be interested in our postgraduate module T868: Environmental Monitoring and Protection, which discusses different environmental monitoring techniques for noise, water, air and wastes, and explores available mitigation methods. This module can be taken individually but it also forms part of our Postgraduate Diploma in Environmental Management, our MSc in Environmental Management and our MSc in Engineering.
