Master of Science in Environmental Engineering

The Master of Science in Environmental Engineering program builds a strong foundation in multiple areas of environmental engineering through coursework and research specialization. Areas of specialization may include but are not limited to: water and wastewater engineering, soil remediation, water resources engineering, air pollution engineering (indoor and outdoor), building energy systems, energy/environment/economics (E3), environmental chemistry, environmental resource management, and industrial ecology.

Students are expected to conduct research at a rigorous level above and beyond the coursework-only Master of Engineering in Environmental Engineering degree program. Students must complete an oral defense of their written thesis to satisfy program requirements.
