These master of engineering programs are course-only, professionally oriented degree programs that permit a concentration in preparation for engineering practice. Admission requirements to these programs are the same as those for the master of science program. Candidates in these programs must complete a minimum of 32 credit hours, up to three of which may be a special project course—CAE 597 or ENVE 597. Up to 12 credit hours of 400-level undergraduate coursework (except CAE 431 and CAE 432) may be included in the master of engineering program with prior adviser approval. No thesis or comprehensive examination is required for completion of the degree.


All environmental engineering students must take five core courses. The remaining credit hours in the program of study should be selected, in consultation with the student’s adviser, to meet the student’s professional goals. Up to 9 credit hours in courses numbered 400-499 may be selected in some cases to overcome deficiencies or broaden the student’s background.
