More information about the Environmental Engineering discipline

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.

Suggested Study Programmes

    This MSc in Engineering course builds on previous study of Postgraduate Diploma in Engineering or our MEng, and offers you an opportunity to research an engineering topic in depth.

  • Master in Disaster Preparedness and Reconstruction

    This program applies recognised disaster management practices, providing graduates with the unique ability to work on approaches to building disaster resilience in context specific situations.

  • Master in Geomechanics

    Students interested in participating in research projects may enroll for up to 6 units in CEE299. Students have flexibility in selecting courses focusing on the area within the program that is of greatest interest to them. Diversity is encouraged.

  • Master in Materials Science and Engineering

    The Materials Science and Engineering Program at UC San Diego is interdisciplinary, with participation of faculty members from several departments. Faculty from the following departments participates in the Materials Science and Engineering Program: Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE), Physics, Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO), Structural Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), NanoEngineering, Chemistry, and Bioengineering.

  • Master in Polymer Engineering and Science

    The MEPES program offers you a prestigious learning experience from a department internationally recognized for its research and teaching in polymer engineering and science. You will learn with faculty who participate in the Polymer Consortium and the Rheology Research Center (RRC).

  • Master in Bioengineering

    This intercollege program provides graduate-level training in engineering and the life sciences, and their integration. Students graduating from this program will have acquired expertise in the application of engineering principles to fundamental problems in biology, clinical problems in medicine, or in the development of new biomedical instrumentation. They are also expected to produce scholarly work to be published in peer-reviewed journals and presented at national conferences. Graduate curricula and student assessment in bioengineering is under the direction of the program chair and a graduate curriculum committee that is composed of graduate faculty representing several departments in the Colleges of Engineering, Health and Human Development, Science, and Medicine.

  • Master in Engineering Science

    A program leading to the degree of Master of Engineering with a major in Engineering Science is offered at Penn State Harrisburg. The program is designed to provide a broad, advanced education in the engineering sciences with some specialization permitted in the area of the student's major interest. It is offered specifically to permit practicing engineers to pursue advanced studies through evening classes while in full-time employment in industry in the area. Courses offered for the program are all established and authorized by the resident departments at the University Park campus.

  • Master in Transportation Engineering

    This professional degree emphasizes solving technical, sociological, environmental, and economic problems involved in the design, construction, and operation of engineering structures, processes, and equipment. Studies include courses in the engineering sciences necessary to the engineering interpretation of the latest scientific developments. Courses in design, operation, humanities, and economics provide bases for the analysis and solution of problems in professional engineering.

  • Master in Electrical Engineering

    The M.S. graduate program in the Department of Electrical Engineering (MSEE) at UMD provides students the opportunity to advance their knowledge and conduct research in the cutting edge areas of electrical engineering and related fields. The program supports student's study through research supervision, research facilities, learning environment, and administrative assistance.

  • Master in Materials Science & Engineering

    Master of Science in Engineering (M.S.E.) degree is a traditional full-time master’s degree program, although it can also be completed on a part-time basis. Courses are offered on the Homewood Campus. The Department of Materials Science and Engineering offers two options for students pursuing a Master of Science in Engineering: an M.S.E. degree with essay and an M.S.E. degree. Below, the requirements for each degree are detailed. Students interested in applying must adhere to the standard graduate admissions process.
