Degree Programs Introduction
The Master's program allows specialization in a particular
field of interest. The Department offers two Master's degrees: the
Master of Science degree and the
Master of Engineering degree.
Candidates for graduate degrees generally specialize in one of the
established Graduate Research & Education
Areas. Detailed programs are devised individually in
conjunction with a Faculty Advisor and Supervisory Committee to
provide flexibility in accommodating a student's interests. A
Student's Plan of Study must be approved by the Supervisory
Committee. Typical Research projects and background information on
each of these areas are described in the current edition of the
Environmental Engineering Sciences Research Report.
The Master's program consists of a minimum of 30 semester credits
of course work with a thesis or 30 semester credits with a
non-thesis project. This excludes credit for which grades of S/U
are given (except for the departmental seminar, research, and
thesis credits) and courses below the 5000 level with an EES or
ENV prefix. Additional credits may be necessary depending on
satisfaction of course competency requirements.
