Environmental Engineering is concerned with the study of clean technologies that have no or as little impact on the environment as possible. It analyses and develops new methods of waste management to minimize the negative effects of pollution on the environment. Another component of this field is the filtration technology development that aims at reducing the toxic emission in the air. This discipline focuses not only on the environment, but also on protecting the health of the employees of the industrial environment. Environmental Engineers protect the public health by applying engineering principles to the environment and contributing to the sustainable development.
Geoengineering is focuses in issues such as carbon dioxide reduction, global warming and solar radiation management, ocean fertilization, etc. It sets out to deliberately and systematically improve the environment on a large scale and enhance habitability. Applying engineering principles and methods, geoengineers work towards clean air, water and soil for the human society, but also for all living organisms and fight to remedy the pollution, degradation and destruction of natural habitats. Geoengineering can be regarded as Environmental Engineering with a broader scope and action.
Both fields tackle problems like waste management, impact assessment and mitigation, water treatment, air quality improvement. Graduates of this discipline have a good understanding of environmental systems and technologies and are dedicated to improving Earth.
EDGE enables engineering professional, military members, and students worldwide to participate in courses, certificates, and degree programs from the UF College of Engineering. Engineers can earn a master’s degree at a time and place convenient to them through programs from UF EDGE. As an EDGE student, you view the same course lectures, complete the same assignments and exams as UF campus based engineering students.
Within Environmental Engineering, you can for instance work with energy from biomass and waste, biological air cleaning in industry and animal farming, methods for rapid detection of bacteria in drinking water, biological methods for assessment of water quality in rivers and lakes or improvement of indoor climate in buildings at contaminated soil sites.
The Graduate Certificate of Engineering Science (Agricultural Engineering) is ideal if you have a three year engineering degree and you want to extend your knowledge in agricultural engineering. You don’t even need work experience to commence your postgraduate studies in this degree.
Master of Science in Environmental and Land Planning Engineering provides an education focused on the broad range of professional capabilities and expertise required to deal with and address adequate engineering frameworks for the sustainable utilization of natural resources and man made infrastructures.
USQ's Graduate Certificate of Engineering Technology (Environmental Engineering) is ideal for engineers or scientists who have a three-year degree in science, engineering or technology and want to extend their knowledge of environmental engineering.
This MSc aims to expose engineers and built environment students and professionals to the challenges and complexities of working in a global context, and equip them with necessary skills and knowledge to place these in the frameworks and paradigms in which they might work. This programme will focus on the provision of sustainable and resilient infrastructure in low-middle income countries.
Materials Science and Engineering encompasses all natural and man-made materials – their extraction, synthesis, processing, properties, characterization, and development for technological applications. Advanced engineering activities that depend upon optimized materials include the medical device and healthcare industries, the energy industries, electronics and photonics, transportation, advanced batteries and fuel cells, and nanotechnology.
Graduate study in the Department of Geography and Environmental Engineering prepares students for leadership roles in practice, development, and research pertinent to environmental and urban problems. At the graduate level, students are expected to increase the depth of their academic training in their particular area of expertise, and to develop the capacity to collaborate with individuals from other disciplines. Because of its diversity of interests and association with other JHU departments, the department can offer a broad range of graduate programs based on the natural, social, and engineering sciences.
The Master of Property has been designed to provide relevant learning outcomes and flexibility by being delivered entirely online.
The Master’s degree in Fluid Mechanics and Energetics is a highly competitive academic program. The selection is done on the basis of prior academic and/or scientific achievement as documented by academic transcripts, a cover letter, references, and standardized test scores. Students from countries where English language is not the primary language are required to provide TOEFL test scores.
The Master's in Telecommunications Program offers students a unique opportunity to engage in cross-disciplinary coursework from both the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of the A. James Clark School of Engineering and the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland. This extraordinary combination culminates in a degree that prepares students for the broad range of rigors and issues that encompass the dynamic telecommunications industry.
This industry focused program will provide you with specialised project management skills designed for the built environment, as well as people management skills opening up opportunities for success.
