DescriptionThe Departments of Civil Engineering, Biological Systems Engineering, and Chemical Engineering jointly administer an interdisciplinary program leading to a Master of Science in environmental engineering. The program is closely coupled to other areas, particularly in the water environment and natural resources areas. Faculty members in the three departments offer a balance of expertise covering the four major areas of environmental engineering, as sanctioned by the American Academy of Environmental Engineers. These include: water supply engineering, wastewater engineering, hazardous waste management engineering, and solid waste management engineering. A fifth area of emphasis in diffuse (non-point) and agricultural waste management engineering is also available.
For program admission, a student must have completed an accredited undergraduate degree in engineering. Students with a bachelor's degree in the physical or biological sciences can be admitted but must complete specified deficiency courses in mathematics and engineering science.
Courses and MoreStudents in Environmental Engineering are most likely to take courses in:
- Environmental Engineering (ENVE)
- Civil Engineering (CIVE)
- Biological Systems Engineering (BSEN)
- Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (CHME)
Students will work with an advisor to create a Program of Studies or Memorandum of Courses during the first half of their coursework.
