Why Earn a Master's Degree in Environmental Engineering at UND?
The graduate environmental engineering program emphasizes a multidisciplinary approach to environmental engineering and includes the mitigation of environmental impacts from gaseous, liquid, and solid-phase emission sources. You'll work closely with industry, businesses and communities to develop new technologies and solve infrastructure-related problems.
Working alongside faculty from the Chemical, Civil and Geological Engineering departments as well as UND's Institute for Energy Studies, you'll complete an environmental engineering design project that positions you for real-world success. UND's interdisciplinary approach prepares you for professional success, life-long learning and to be a contributor to a multicultural, global society, while advanced-level engineering coursework will prepare you for careers in industry or government.
Top Online Graduate Engineering Program in the Nation
Every accredited engineering education program offers education, but not every program prepares students to make a real impact the way UND does. UND is increasingly regarded as one of the top academic and research institutions in the nation for engineering. We consistently rank among the best for educational quality, affordability, and career outcomes.
Recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a top online graduate engineering program.
M.S. vs. M.Eng. Degree in Environmental Engineering
UND offers both Environmental Engineering Master of Science (M.S.) and Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) degrees. It is recommended you connect with the your advisor before making a final decision. However, in general, a M.Eng. program is more course-based, while the more popular M.S. program includes a thesis or research project/independant study. See M.S. requirements or M.Eng. requirements for more information.
