Graduate Study
Environmental Engineering - Master of Science

Students in the master's and doctoral degree programs in environmental engineering may pursue advanced study in the areas of environmental chemistry and physical-chemical processes, environmental microbiology and biotechnology, and environmental hydrology and water resources.

Master of Science

Courses are selected in consultation with the academic advisor based upon the student's background. The courses in the finall program of study are subject to the approval of the guidance committee.

In addition to meeting the requirements of the university and of the College of Engineering, students must meet the requirements specified below.

Admission

Applicants for admission are expected to have a level of competency equivalent to that achieved by earning an undergraduate degree in environmental engineering, or in civil engineering with an environmental engineering specialization.  The undergraduate program should have included courses in mathematics through differential equations, chemistry, physics (mechanics), fluid mechanics, computer programming, and the design of water and wastewater treatment processes.

Depending on their undergraduate programs and their specialties within environmental engineering, students who are admitted to the master's degree program with bachelor's degrees in fields related to environmental engineering may be required to complete collateral courses.

All applicants are encouraged to provide their scores from the Graduate Record Examination General Test.

Requirements for the Master of Science Degree in Environmental Engineering

The student must complete a total of 30 credits for the degree under either Plan A (with thesis) or Plan B (without thesis).

A student under Plan A must complete at least 20 credits at the 800-level or above, including 4 credits of Environmental Engineering 899. Up to 10 credits of 400-level course work may be counted toward the degree. The student's program must be approved by the guidance committee.

A student under Plan B must complete at least 18 credits at the 800-level or above, including the completion of a research or design project through enrollment of at least 1 credit, but no more than 4 credits in Environmental Engineering 892. Up to 12 credits of 400-level course work may be counted toward the degree. The student's program must be approved by the guidance committee.
