Degree: Master of Science in Engineering With Certificate of Sustainable Water Engineering
Area Director: Prof. Jenny Jay email@example.com
Plentiful high quality water is fundamental for society. However, drought, climate change, contamination and growing populations pose challenges for water sustainability. Engineers are needed worldwide to find novel solutions providing access to clean water. Key elements in this degree program are surface and groundwater processes, hydroclimatology, watershed response to disturbance, remote sensing for hydrologic applications, membrane separation in aqueous systems, aquatic chemistry, environmental microbiology, and the chemical fate, geochemical modeling, and transport of contaminants in the environment.
At least nine courses are required, of which at least five must be graduate courses at the 200 level (excluding ENGR 299 project course), and meet comprehensive requirement.
A minimum of six courses must be selected from the Following:

Comprehensive Exam Requirement
Students can meet the Comprehensive Exam Requirement in two ways: Choose (1 option below)
Take and Pass ENGR 299 Capstone Project course.
Take and pass three written exams for three different graduate level courses within the student’s area of specialization. The written exams are held concurrently with the final exam of the graduate level courses. Students may select which exams they would like to count towards the Comprehensive Exam requirement.
As long as you have met the requirements above the remaining courses may be selected from other Engineering departments. No approval is necessary
Students are expected to complete the degree within two academic years and one quarter, including two summer sessions. The maximum time allowed in this program is three academic years (nine quarters), excluding summer sessions.
