Ecological Engineering (EE)
Environmental Resources Engineering M.S. & Ph.D.
Program prerequisite or co-requisite courses include at least one semester of study in thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, or statics; probability and statistics; ecology; and hydrology. Applicants are required to have a bachelor’s degree in science or engineering with one year of study in calculus and one semester of study in computing methods, chemistry, and biology.
Program mastery courses include at least one course (3+ credit hours per course) in each of the 4 areas of competence listed below (illustrative courses are listed in parenthesis):
- Ecosystem Restoration (e.g., Ecosystem Restoration Design, Sustainability Analysis, River Form and Process, Ecological Engineering in the Tropics)
- Pollutant Treatment (e.g., Methods in Ecological Treatment, Ecological Engineering for Waste Management, Stormwater Management)
- Ecosystem Sciences (e.g., Microbial Ecology, Ecosystems, Systems Ecology, Tropical Ecology, Ecological Biogeochemistry, Plant Ecology and Global Change, Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration, Limnology, Environmental Chemistry)
At least 15 credit hours of graduate coursework must be completed in engineering and applied science courses. Research credits complete the degree requirements.
