Our Curriculum

The online Master of Environmental Engineering program is based on the University of New Haven’s well-known and respected on-ground program established in the early 70’s.  Online courses are offered in 5 convenient 7.5- or 6-week long terms, during the academic year and the summer, respectively (2 terms in the spring, 1 in the summer, and 2 in the fall) at one course per term allowing students to complete the program in as little as 2 years.

The online Master of Environmental Engineering program was designed for working professionals and features a fully supported online learning environment. Courses, offered in an asynchronous mode, can be completed fully online using Blackboard.

The program includes ten 3-credit courses in various areas of environmental and water resources engineering, and in environmental law.  Students are also required to complete a research project.  This degree requirement may be fulfilled by completing the 3-credit Research Project course (shown in the table with an asterisk *), or by a project completed in a course.

The program requires 30 units of graduate credit for the degree.  Courses currently offered in the program include:
