Environmental and Water Resources Engineering
Solving complex environmental and water resources challenges.
Through the Environmental and Water Resources Engineering Program (EWRE), prepare to expand understanding and skills in science and engineering for the protection of human health and the environment. Under the mentorship of award-winning faculty, students take a core of fundamental courses that relate theory to design practices; additional elective coursework and research opportunities are plentiful in areas such as drinking water quality and treatment, groundwater hydraulics, hazardous waste, municipal and industrial wastewater treatment, solid waste, water quality and pollution, water resources and supply.
The EWRE program is committed to solving the environmental problems of today and educating the engineers and researchers of tomorrow. By combining a tradition of excellence with a passion for innovation, our program provides students with a highly competitive education. Most graduate students are supported through research assistantships, fellowships, and teaching assistantships.
