Environmental engineering at New Mexico State University provides unique educational and research opportunities at the graduate level in the fields of water quality, water treatment, water pollution control, wastewater treatment reclamation and reuse, hazardous and solid waste management, and groundwater treatment. Because of the interdisciplinary credentials of its faculty and the excellence of its research facilities, the program attracts high-caliber students from a variety of engineering and science backgrounds. Therefore, course offerings have been developed to emphasize basic engineering and scientific principles, as well as design and application of environmental engineering unit operations and processes. Special problem and thesis research are closely matched with faculty expertise and the programs and professional goals of the graduate students. Study and research programs are specifically designed for individual students, taking advantage of not only the program capabilities, but complementing activities of the university as a whole.
