One of our MSc courses is in ‘Environmental Informatics’.
From the next academic year in October 2015 onwards, we have decided to rename this course. So now the course is known as Cranfield University’s ‘MSc in Environmental Data Science’.
We made this change following careful consideration and advice from our industrial partners and student alumni. It was felt that the new name more closely reflected the ambitions of the course (data, modelling, visualisation and analytical techniques in the environmental sciences), and would stand alumni better in the subsequent jobs market (being a well understood term).
The course is described at http://www.cranfield.ac.uk/courses/masters/environmental-informatics.html and in fact all other aspects of the course remain the same (only the title is changed).
