Our Online Graduate Environmental Engineering Faculty

Environmental Engineering is a widely growing and respected specialization in the Engineering field and the University of New Haven’s faculty are experts in the field. Our online Master’s degree in Environmental Engineering is taught by faculty who are scholar-practitioners. They have practical, real-world experience as well as a background in research to back up what they know.  Meet a few of them …

Graduate Environmental Engineering Coordinator Agamemnon Koutsospyros Ph.D. outlines the key components of the online graduate environmental engineering program at the University of New Haven.

Dr. Emese Hadnagy

Dr. Emese Hadnagy is an Assistant Professor and the Graduate Coordinator of the Online MS in Environmental Engineering program at the University of New Haven.  Dr. Hadnagy teaches both undergraduate and graduate level courses in water resources and environmental engineering (both on-campus and online). Her current research focuses on innovative chemical treatment technologies and on surface water quality issues. Dr. Hadnagy was attracted to the University of New Haven because of its strong focus on applied engineering education, its innovative efforts in developing online courses, and because she wanted to teach in a small classroom setting where she could have a lot of personal interaction with students.  In her courses, she strives to achieve a healthy balance between theory and application, and her main goal is to foster independence in her students to help them transfer the knowledge they gained in the classroom to their current and future jobs.
