Bioenvironmental Engineering

Bioenvironmental Engineering or Environmental Engineering is an interdisciplinary study seeking solutions to environmental challenges that impact the health and well-being of society and the environment.

Program Description

The Bioenvironmental Engineering Graduate Program gives students the knowledge and skills to find effective solutions for current and emerging environmental challenges related to human activities and impacts. The course of study is built on a foundation of biology, chemistry and engineering and prepares students for careers in environmental consulting, regulatory agencies, and industry. Students can specialize in areas of study such as air pollution, climate adaptation, bioremediation of environmental contaminants, environmental restoration, point and nonpoint source pollution, solid and hazardous waste treatment, surface and groundwater modeling, sustainability engineering, waste gas treatment, water and wastewater treatment, and controlled environment engineering. Successful applicants are expected to have completed an undergraduate engineering degree from an ABET-accredited engineering program or from a foreign institution with an equivalent program. Highly qualified applicants who lack above science requirements may be allowed to correct this after admission.

Application Requirements

Foreign students must supply GRE scores and a score from the TOEFL, IELTS, or similar language test.
