“Taking classes through University of New Haven’s Environmental Engineering online Master’s program has been a great experience and opportunity to further my education while working full time. Though I hadn’t had any prior experience with taking online classes during my undergraduate career, I had no problem adapting to this new format. The professors are very accessible and responsive to any questions students have, and truly want to help students succeed. The University staff has also been really accommodating with working with my employer for tuition payments. The accelerated pace is challenging but doable for anyone willing to put in the time and work to be successful.”

Meghan Whitesell - Online Graduate Student in Environmental Engineering

Meghan Whitesell

Project Engineer at JKMuir in Rocky Hill, CT

“I selected the online Master of Science in Environmental Engineering at the University of New Haven, because of the flexibility the program provided with my full-time working schedule. The schedule also appealed to me, because they offered two terms in a semester with one course at a time; therefore, I found the curriculum to be a fast-paced, yet focused, part-time graduate school. I was initially hesitant to enroll in a fully-online program, but the courses have been organized, engaged, and relevant to the environmental industry. The integration and understanding between what we learn in the academic settling applied to the real-world is heavily incorporated into the course. Also, I have found the professors to be accessible with questions and feedback. Overall, I have been thoroughly enjoying the program and the quality that is being offered.”
