Master of Science in Environmental Engineering and Public Administration

Requirements with Thesis – 30 credit hours. The candidate must complete 12 credit hours of coursework in the fundamental environmental engineering areas, which includes CIE 671, CIE 672 and CIE 673. If the student has already taken one or more of these courses at the 400 level, he/she will be expected to take corresponding higher level courses in these fundamental engineering areas. In addition, the student must complete four elective courses (12 credits) in public administration, and participate in a noncredit cross-discipline seminar. Furthermore, six credits of CIE 997-Master’s Thesis, must be taken culminating in the defense of the thesis administered by a thesis committee and given by the Civil and Environmental Engineering faculty.
