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.
Courses, offered in an asynchronous mode, can be completed fully online.
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, or by a project completed in a course.
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
The program requires 30 units of graduate credit for the degree. Courses currently offered fully online include:
|Course Code/ Course Title||Course Code/ Course Title|
|CIVL 6601 – Physical-Chemical Treatment of Aqueous Wastes||CIVL 6614 – Surface Water Quality Management|
