Environmental Engineering - MSc

pollution from a factroy

The Master of Science program in Environmental Engineering is an interdisciplinary engineering degree program that is administered by a director and a steering committee from the engineering departments. Other faculty members from the School of Sciences and Engineering participate in the program. It provides a broad program of study in preparation for careers in advanced engineering areas in addition to in-depth knowledge in Environmental Engineering with a strong research component.  Graduates will be prepared for PhD studies or for research and leadership in government, industry and international consulting companies.


The objectives of the Master of Science in Environmental Engineering graduate program are to provide the graduates of the program with:

  • Broad knowledge of modern computational and experimental methods in engineering

  • Extensive knowledge in fundamental environmental engineering science, the interactions of pollutants in water, air, and subsurface environments, and the design of treatment/pollutant remediation systems

  • In-depth understanding of the research methods and data analysis in one of the areas of environmental engineering noted above

  • An ability to solve unstructured engineering problems of social significance, think critically, and function well in a team

  • A high and ethical standard of written and oral communication on technical matters


Upon completing the MSc degree requirements for the Environmental Engineering Graduate Program, students should have the ability to:

  • Apply advanced mathematics, numerical models, engineering, and scientific analyses to identify, formulate, and analyze complex and contemporary environmental engineering problems related to water, air, soil, and the built environment.

  • Acquire the required knowledge in the field of environmental engineering (Water Pollution and Treatment systems, Air pollution control systems, Waste management systems, … etc.) to provide alternative solutions for environmental engineering problems and apply critical thinking while comparing the validity, pros, and cons of each.

  • Apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of societal, environmental, and economical needs.

  • Ability to effectively communicate with a range of audiences, present, report, and defend findings related to research and other professional work.

  • Contribute to professional activities, conferences, and technical journals.

  • Conduct high-quality research work with appropriate utilization of laboratories, libraries, field sites, learning media, and means of information and communication technology.

  • Implement the code of ethics within the courses and research work.

  • Acquire the tools needed for life-long learning.
