Master of Science in Environmental Engineering
The Master of Science in Environmental Engineering (M.S.Env.E.) program is designed to provide full-time and part-time students with the opportunity to develop a greater technical competency in the general area of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Students are motivated to grow intellectually through the continued search for and use of knowledge, and are provided with the catalyst to become active, articulate, and socially aware individuals. Graduates of the program are key contributors to the Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering professions. Two areas of specialization are available: Civil Engineering Systems and Environmental Engineering. Advanced courses in Civil Engineering Systems include the three major branches of civil engineering: construction engineering, structural engineering, and transportation engineering. Research in Environmental Engineering includes the fundamentals and applications of water resources engineering, pollution in natural systems (water and air), and engineered treatment and remediation systems.
Graduates with the M.S. in Environmental Engineering are employed by various engineering companies as well as government agencies in design, analysis, and applications. Typical examples are water treatment facilities and regulatory agencies engaged in environmental regulation and pollution control; companies involved in construction project management; and those involved in structural design and analysis of buildings, bridges, and other structures. Students who complete an M.S.Env.E. with a thesis are prepared to enter a doctoral program.
In addition to submitting an application with the required supporting material, other admission requirements include:
1. An undergraduate engineering degree in engineering, from an ABET-accredited or equivalent institution. Students with a strong background in physical sciences, biology, and mathematics may also be considered for admission.
2. At least a 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) undergraduate GPA
3. A minimum score of 450 verbal, 650 quantitative, and 4.5 analytical on the GRE

International Student Requirements:
For applicants whose native language is not English, a minimum score of 213 on the computer-based test, 550 on the paper-based test, and 79 on the internet-based test on the TOEFL, or a 6.5 on the academic version of the IELTS is required. International applicants must submit an official transcripts and a copy of the degree, diploma, or certificate awarded whereby the academic institution validates completion and conferral. Transcripts from all post-secondary institutions must be submitted for the applicant by the university, even if only one course was taken. Applicants who attended institutions that do not issue complete academic records in English must submit official copies of native language records and literal translations into English prepared by an appropriate university or government official.
