Environmental Engineering and Water Resources

Environmental Engineering and Management is a unique graduate program designed for environmental professionals in the modern work place. The program's objective is to provide advanced education in the scientific and regulatory background, state-of-the-art engineering practice, and the social and policy implications of environmental management.

The challenging coursework addresses pressing problems in all aspects of environmental engineering: infrastructure development, restoration and maintenance; liquid and solid waste management; remediation of contaminated land and groundwater; fate and transport of pollutants in surface and groundwater; and local, state and federal environmental regulation and policy.

Technological, regulatory and policy issues are explored in depth in this program offered by the Department of Civil Engineering.CUA's traditional Environmental Engineering program continues to be available to students who do not desire to study management aspects of the environmental field.

Degrees Offered

The program leads to the Master of Science in Engineering (M.Sc.) degree for students who have engineering background or non-engineering. Ph.D.-based Doctoral Programs are also offered.
