Several modules on the Energy and Environmental Management postgraduate course are currently accredited by the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management. UCLan also intend to gain accreditation from the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management and the Energy Institute.
Specific entry requirements for the course are a minimum of a Lower Second Class Honours Degree in an appropriate/relevant subject or qualification or experience deemed to be equivalent.

This course provides an education in the emerging environmental field of energy management, which is linked with organisations looking to employ energy and environmental managers. Energy is becoming a global issue and international development is linked to the economics of natural resources. The public and private sectors, not just those associated with energy management, require staff with a detailed environmental knowledge at a regional, national and international scale. Businesses are increasingly looking outside Europe to Asia, Australasia and the Americas to inform their best practices and maintain market share.
