Graduate Degree Programs

Master of Science in Environmental Engineering

Program Description:

As our society advances, development puts pressure on world resources and ecosystems. Environmental engineers help balance the impact of this development on our environment with solutions that remediate or prevent contamination of air, drinking water, soil and natural systems. The field of environmental engineering is rapidly advancing to encompass many of today’s greatest challenges, such as sustainability, carbon emissions and limited water resources.

Courses in Missouri University of Science and Technology’s environmental engineering graduate degree program focus on engineering analysis that incorporate the fundamental physical, biological and chemical characteristics of natural and engineered environmental systems, while putting these engineering solutions in the context of societal needs and the requirements of environmental laws.

A total of 30 credit hours of coursework is required to complete this degree.

Please check the Schedule of Classes for a current list of available courses for distance students.

  • Bachelor’s degree in an engineering discipline from an accredited program
  • GPA ≥3.0; GRE V+Q ≥ 300, GRE V ≥ 150, GRE Q ≥ 150, and GRE A ≥ 4.0; International requirement: TOEFL IBT ≥ 88
  • Students with non-civil engineering degrees may be required to take additional courses to prepare them for their advanced studies. In some cases, students with non-engineering degrees (e.g., chemistry, physics, geology, or biology) will be considered if deficiencies in mathematics, science and engineering are remedied.

Graduate Certificates
Graduate certificate programs are a great way to start earning college credit toward a graduate degree. The GRE is not required to enter a certificate program. If you complete a certificate program with a grade of B or better in all core courses, you may be accepted into the corresponding master's degree program without taking the GRE*.
