The online Master of Environmental Engineering program is comparable to the University of New Haven’s well-known and respected on-campus program established in the early ’70s. Online courses are taken in five convenient 6-7.5-week long terms at one course per term, allowing students to complete the program in as little as two years without missing a day of work.
The program includes ten 3-credit courses in environmental and water resources engineering and environmental law. Students must also complete a research project.
The University of New Haven takes a holistic look at environmental engineering, including topics such as:
- Pollution prevention
- Hazardous waste treatment
- Soil and groundwater remediation
- Solid waste
- Air pollution
- Water pollution and treatment
- Wastewater treatment
- Open channel flow
- Surface water quality
Courses currently offered entirely online include the following:
|Course Code/ Course Title||Course Code/ Course Title|
|CIVL 6601 – Physical-Chemical Treatment of Aqueous Wastes||CIVL 6614 – Surface Water Quality Management|
|CIVL 6602 – Biological Treatment of Aqueous Wastes||CIVL 6618 – Hazardous Waste Treatment|
