Air Pollution Monitoring Assessment & Control - Micro-Credential

Who is this Micro-credential for?
• This micro-credential will appeal to working professionals in the public or private sector responsible for air quality monitoring and assessment, with responsibilities in air quality reporting, or who have a role in air pollution mitigation and adaptation in either the indoor or outdoor environment.

• Interested learners will be introduced to the field of air pollution science, identifying the current challenges in the field and key background knowledge in the provision of clean air for society and the environment. It explores the use of air pollution modelling to predict concentrations in various settings and to assess the impacts of policy changes, modern technology, or developments.

Why should I take this Micro-credential?
• Air pollution represents a global health challenge and is directly contributing to climate change. It is present in both outdoor and indoor environments. To address air pollution effectively, we need to fully understand the complex mix of pollutants we must deal with.

• This micro-credential provides a valuable insight into air pollutants, focusing on how we measure and assess the challenge at individual, local, national, and global levels. This course provides you with the skills to effectively monitor campaigns, perform informed assessment studies, and design or select appropriate control technologies and strategies to improve air quality.

What will I do?
• This micro-credential deals with the development of environmental impact assessment in relation to air pollution in infrastructure developments, using several case studies (e.g., incineration, construction projects, roads, etc).

• We will examine the development of national emissions inventories and the projection of pollution into the future using forecasting techniques.

• We will appraise the physical measurement of air pollutants using field equipment.

How will this Micro-credential be delivered?
• All lectures will be delivered live from a lecture theatre (face-to-face) format or can be accessed remotely, and all sessions will be recorded.

• This blended course will apply flipped classroom components for face-to-face students and groups online, combining traditional lecture formats for student tasks and promoting peer-learning.

• Discussion boards will be provided for virtual students to allow for questions related to topic areas covered and coursework.

• Two practical field sessions (live and recorded, simultaneously available face-to-face and virtually) will provide hands-on experience of air quality science to ground fundamentals and context for some coursework and lecture material.

Entry requirements

Applicants must have a 2.1 grade in a level 8 degree in Civil/Environmental Engineering, Environmental Science or a cognate discipline.
