In an increasingly interconnected world, the field of environmental engineering has expanded rapidly to include areas such as water and air pollution, groundwater contamination, solid and hazardous waste management, and industrial waste treatment.
Recognized nationally as a leader in experiential education, UNH offers an exciting, hands-on, 39-credit master’s degree program in environmental engineering. Students in the program learn to develop sustainable solutions to complex environmental problems through concentrated study of environmental protection issues, water quality, water purification, wastewater treatment, solid waste management systems, site remediation, and emission control measures. A required research project allows students to explore complex contemporary environmental issues and apply knowledge obtained through integrated classroom and field study in the program.
Some additional highlights of the program include:
• Vigorous, professionally-oriented courses enriched with field applications and case studies.
• Effective instruction in a learning environment that combines small classes and individual attention with state-of-the-art instructional technologies
• Convenient scheduling for part-time students who are working professionals
• Areas of concentration in water resources, water and wastewater treatment, and industrial and hazardous waste management
