Environmental Resources Engineering
M.P.S., M.S., Ph.D

Environmental Resources Engineering takes an interdisciplinary approach to solve environmental and resource-related problems. Emphasis is placed on applying science and engineering to the conservation, restoration, holistic development, and improved utilization of the natural environment and its related resources. Student's program of study may be tailored to systems and processes at different geospatial scales, from biomolecules to planetary, and employing various tools and techniques such as biomolecular techniques, remote sensing, hydrodynamic modeling and systems analysis.

Illustrative areas in this option include, but not limited to:

  • Alternative energy systems
  • Environmental remediation
  • Resource recovery from wastes
  • Climate change mitigation and adaptation

Program prerequisite or co-requisite courses beyond the departmental requirement include at least one semester of study in thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, or statics; hydrology, chemistry, or biology; and computing methods.

Program mastery courses beyond the departmental requirement are arranged to meet the objectives of the individual student program. A student’s program of study in this option may combine competence areas in the other ERE options, or introduce new competence areas.
