The MS in Environmental Engineering is oriented towards creative ways to solving interdisciplinary problems in integrated water resource management, waste management, environmental externalities of energy production, and coastal and urban systems.
To develop, adapt and disseminate knowledge and technologies for engineering and management of holistic environmental systems.
Degree Awarded: MS
Degree Code: MS_ENVE
The increasingly complex relationship of engineered systems and the environment has generated the need for engineers to better understand the interconnectedness of natural resources with people and the socio-economic system. The MSEnveEngr degree provides a broad-based engineering education; students learn to integrate knowledge from several disciplines and gain skills in problem definition as well as use of advanced techniques of data analysis and presentation of original research results. This degree requires twenty-four semester hours of course work, including ENGR 6910, Research Methods, and one hour of seminar (ENGR 8950). Six hours of thesis research is also required. Six hours of math and six hours of statistics are encouraged, with remaining courses related to a thesis topic. Contact the graduate coordinator for additional details.
