MEng in Environmental Engineering
The master of engineering (MEng) in environmental engineering program emphasizes applied design, fundamental coursework, and development of key communication skills to meet today's industry demands and advance your career.
About the Major
Environmental engineering focuses on the protection of human health and the environment. Students learn fundamentals related to air, water, and hazardous waste through a range of courses in areas such as water and wastewater treatment, hydrology, watershed management, and environmental regulation. All courses emphasize applied engineering with the appropriate theoretical underpinning. This allows students to understand why a particular approach is typically incorporated into current designs meeting today’s challenges. This is accomplished through faculty members that bring decades of experience to the classroom.

E2M is a unique, three-way partnership between the Barney School of Business and the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture. Coursework includes applied projects, such as formulating marketing and business plans for area companies. The Engineering Applications Center assists local businesses and industries in applying new techniques, and you will become involved through application projects, symposia, and forums. You may complete either program and receive your degree immediately, without waiting to complete both.
This partnership between the Barney School of Business and the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture (CETA) provides a broader focus for engineers moving into management and leadership tracks. The program requires a total of 60 credits – that’s 6 fewer credits than if you pursued the degrees separately. Students can earn both a Master of Engineering (MEng) and Master of Business Administration (MBA) within the framework of Excellence in Engineering and Management (E2M) Program.
- Environmental Engineering Laboratory: Study the advancement of physical, chemical, and biological processes for developing innovative solutions to current issues and challenges facing municipal water and wastewater treatment facilities.
- Fundamental as well as design-oriented specialty coursework in the areas of air, water, and hazardous waste management.
- Individualized curriculum through core environmental engineering courses, environmental elective courses, and thesis or independent project.
- Esteemed faculty with decades of experience in the field.
