Master of Engineering - Environmental Engineering

Master of Engineering - Environmental Engineering

The Master of Engineering in Environmental Engineering program requires a total of 30 credits and is divided into three areas of concentration: Environmental Processes, Groundwater and Soil Pollution Control, and Inland and Coastal Environmental Hydrodynamics.

The Environmental Processes concentration addresses the treatment of industrial and domestic water and wastewater and hazardous wastes. Process fundamentals are integrated with a design approach to meeting treatment objectives. Students will be prepared for careers in both design and operation of facilities for pollution control.

The Groundwater and Soil Pollution Control concentration emphasizes the transport and fate of contaminants in the subsurface environment and on engineering processes to mitigate their adverse environmental impact.

The Inland and Coastal Environmental Hydrodynamics concentration addresses the circulation and mixing processes in surface waters and the effect of such processes on the fate and transport of contaminants. Deterministic, stochastic and experimental techniques are emphasized.   

GRE is Preferred for All Applicants
