Robert Glavin

Robert Glavin: "Without having undertaken the masters at Kingston, I would not have been able to make this change"

Course: Environmental and Earth Resource Management MSc

"Seventeen years ago, I made a decision to change my career. I was working in the oil industry and had been through several phases of redundancy. I was based in an office and wanted a career with the opportunity to work outside, as well as to be able to assess and analyse data. As a result, I chose to undertake the masters in Environmental and Earth Resource Management at Kingston University.

The course gave me the flexibility to continue working whilst learning new skills. It offered a variety of subjects and the one which I enjoyed the most was in Contaminated Land. Within months of finishing the course, I was able to secure a position with a contaminated land consultancy and embarked upon a career that combines site work, data assessment and reporting.

Since then, I have worked on complex and challenging investigation and remediation projects, not just in the United Kingdom, but also in Europe, Africa and India. It is a career that is both interesting and rewarding. Without having undertaken the masters at Kingston, I would not have been able to make this change."

 

Joseph Algar: "This course, having a very broad range of inter-disciplinary modules, provided me with a comprehensive knowledge of the contemporary issues surrounding global environmental change"

Course: Sustainability and Environmental Change MSc

"Between September 2013 and September 2014 I completed a previous version of the recently revamped Environmental Management MSc course called Sustainability and Environmental Change MSc.This course, having a very broad range of inter-disciplinary modules, provided me with a comprehensive knowledge of the contemporary issues surrounding global environmental change, particularly the underlying causes of climate change, the impact that change is having globally and what is being done to tackle it.

The course's practical range of assessment methods (debating, report writing, presentations) prepared me for working life, particularly the Environmental Impact Assessment report written on the University's canteen and the GLA's mock debate on the proposed expansion of Heathrow Airport.

One month after I had finished the course I got a job at Surrey County Council as a Projects Officer in their Sustainable Transport team. From there I moved to the London Borough of Hounslow, where I still work, as a Traffic Engineer. I now manage large cycling infrastructure projects from the design of proposed schemes through to their implementation."
