Program Information

Degree Offered:

M.S.-Engineering: Environmental Engineering Sciences Track; M.S.-Environmental Engineering Sciences, Ph.D.-Environmental Engineering

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The program offers three advanced degrees: Master of Science in Environmental Engineering (M.S.Env.E.), Master of Science - Environmental Engineering Sciences (M.S.), and Doctor of Philosophy in Environmental Engineering (Ph.D.). The Environmental Engineering MSEnvE program was created for students who have an undergraduate degree in environmental engineering or any other closely related degree in engineering. Applicants to the program are expected to be knowledgeable in topics including chemistry, process design, water resources, and air pollution. The program focuses on pollution control, pollution prevention, and the correction of pollution effects on natural and man-made environments. The Environmental Engineering MS degree program is for students with science, math, or a similar background, and usually requires a number of undergraduate engineering courses as articulation to become fully prepared for graduate work in environmental engineering. Applicants to the program are expected to be knowledgeable in topics including chemistry, process design, water resources, and air pollution. The program focuses on pollution control, pollution prevention, and the correction of pollution effects on natural and man-made environments. The Environmental Engineering PhD program focuses on pollution control, pollution prevention, and the correction of pollution effects on natural and man-made environments. The program is known for its strong faculty research interests. Areas of study include drinking water treatment, astute treatment, solid and hazardous waste management, atmospheric pollution control and modeling, environmental water resources, and storm water management. The program's mission is to prepare students for careers in environmental engineering with consulting firms; with industry; within federal, state, and local governments; and/or in higher education.
