The Master of Science in Environmental Engineering is an online engineering master degree that will educate and prepare the future leaders in environmentally related fields. The structure of the program is based on a cohort model in which students move through the 2-year curriculum as a group. The course schedule will be based on four 16-week semesters and one eight-week summer session. The online format creates an environment where much learning occurs through completion of individual and team projects and analysis of case studies.
This program will provide students with practical information and technical knowledge on contemporary environmental topics and issues including potable water treatment, wastewater treatment and disposal, water reclamation and reuse, stormwater runoff management and treatment, solid and hazardous waste management, remediation of contaminated groundwater and soil, landfill design, air pollution control engineering, global warming issues, and sustainable development. Students will be trained for consulting companies, industries, or as officials for local governments as well as state or federal regulatory agencies. At the end of this degree program, students will be prepared to sit for the professional engineering exam in environmental engineering.
