Environmental Engineering, M.S.

STEM Designation: This program is STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math)-designated by the Department of Homeland Security. For more information, please see https://www.newhaven.edu/admissions/stem-designated-programs.php

The M.S. Environmental Engineering program at University of New Haven is designed to prepare students for a wide variety of careers in environmental engineering. The curriculum provides students with the skills necessary to approach complex problems in water resources, environmental protection, water and wastewater quality, solid waste management, site remediation, and emission control. 

A minimum of 30 credits, including four required courses, must be completed from courses designated as environmental engineering to earn the master of science degree in environmental engineering. Specialized focus areas include Water and Soil Treatment and Water Resources. Students may elect to pursue a sequence of courses in one focus area, or they may tailor a program of study to meet specific individual needs. A thesis is optional but highly recommended for students who wish to continue their post-graduate studies or focus on a particular topic under the guidance of a faculty member.

Program Outcomes

  1. Apply the fundamental principles of environmental engineering science to complex environmental systems.
  2. Design treatment/remediation systems or system components.
  3. Apply the legal and regulatory aspects of environmental engineering practice.
  4. Synthesize information on technical as well as non-technical issues for a chosen topic into an engineering report or thesis.

Before enrolling, students are generally required to have completed undergraduate courses in General Chemistry I and lab, Calculus I, II, III, and Differential Equations.  Applicants with strong academic or professional experience but without the necessary background for enrolling in some of the required courses may be asked to complete additional courses and will be notified at the time of admission.
