Environmental Engineering (M.S.)

Illinois Tech’s Master of Science in Environmental Engineering program builds a strong foundation in multiple areas of environment engineering through coursework and research specialization. Areas of specialization include: air pollution engineering (indoor and/or outdoor), building energy systems, energy/environment/economics (E3), environmental chemistry, environmental resource management, hazardous waste engineering, and water and wastewater engineering.

Students are expected to conduct research at a rigorous level above and beyond the coursework-only Master of Engineering in Environmental Engineering degree program.

Program Overview

Students will build a strong foundation in multiple areas of environment engineering through coursework and specialization in one research area. Learn how to conduct research at a rigorous level beyond the coursework-only Master of Engineering in Environmental Engineering degree program.

Career Opportunities

Our Master of Science in Environmental Engineering degree program will prepare you for such careers as:

  • Senior environmental engineer
  • Environmental health and safety director
  • Water project engineer

The Master of Science in Environmental Engineering utilizes a mixed-media curriculum, providing students with the opportunity to gain experience in a combination of environmental engineering fields before selecting a specialization in one research area.
