Environmental Engineering, M.S.

Goals and Objectives

The MS in Environmental Engineering prepares graduates to plan, functionally design, control, operate and manage municipal and industrial pollution-prevention systems. Students are exposed to a learning atmosphere that provides a mix of theoretical and practical approaches. Courses include a mix of presentations, project exercises and practical problem solutions.

Specific program objectives are to provide the skills necessary to:

  • fundamentally understand the science and engineering of natural and man-made environmental systems;
  • functionally design air, water and waste treatment systems and components;
  • control and operate environmental facilities;
  • understand the modeling and simulation of environmental systems; and
  • participate actively in multidisciplinary teams to solve environmental problems.
