Environmental Management M.P.S.

Environmental Management combines environmental engineering science with environmental policy, social sciences, and management tools to provide breadth and perspective for the student aspiring to managerial responsibility.

Student coursework is designed to enhance technical and problem-solving skills to meet contemporary needs of environmental managers.

Program Requirements

Program prerequisite or co-requisite courses include at least one semester of study in at least three of the following fields: chemistry; computer science; environmental science; economics; and geographic measurements.

Program mastery courses beyond the departmental requirement include at least one course (3+ credit hours) in each of these areas of competence: 1) Project Management; 2) Environmental Policy; 3) Environmental Resources Engineering.

Personal Statement
After graduation I started working at an Engineering consultancy company as an Environmental engineer. My job comprised the design of underground water utility pressure and gravity networks. During my three year in the job, I grew a decent technical background in the field of hydraulics in addition to being exposed to how large scale projects are being handled and managed. On another note, I have always been interested in social sciences and policy making. Currently, I am trying to focus my research towards areas of overlap between my technical engineering background and my interest in environmental policy issues.
