The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers a graduate program leading to the degree of Master of Science in Environmental Technology (ET). The program is part of the Interfaculty Graduate Environmental Sciences Program (IGESP) and it is open to non-engineering students who hold a degree in basic sciences. For more details on the IGESP program, refer to the Interdisciplinary Research Centers and Programs section of this catalogue.
In order to fulfill the graduation requirements in the MS Program, a student must complete a minimum of 24 credit hours of graduate courses and a thesis equivalent to 6 credit hours, or 27 credit hours of graduate courses and a project course equivalent to 3 credit hours.
