M.S. EnvE Curriculum


Working with their advisers, students are expected to formulate coherent programs of research and study as they work toward a degree under Option I (thesis) or Option II (no thesis). Any student receiving support as a teaching and/or research assistant from the program is expected to enroll under Option I and complete a thesis.

All students are required to complete:

CIVE 828 (Environmental Engineering Chemistry, 3 cr)
CIVE 829 (Biological Treatment Processes, 3 cr)
CIVE 823 (Physical Chemical Treatment Processes, 3 cr)
ENVE 990 (Seminar in Environmental and Water Resources Engineering, 1 cr)


Students having equivalent courses from a previous degree program may substitute or waive a core course or courses, with the written approval of the M.S. EnvE Graduate Committee.
