Our Master's Programs are intended for students and professionals who hold a Bachelor's degree in one of the branches of Engineering or the Sciences. Courses are taught in the evenings at LMU's Westchester Campus. Programs are typically completed in five or six semesters. The flexible format in designed so you can proceed at your own pace.
The Objective of the Programs is to provide the educational background needed by engineers and scientists who will be coping with the complex problems of water and air pollution, flood control, water supply, solid waste and hazardous materials management and overall environmental management.
- Master of Science in Engineering (M.S.E.) - With the emphasis being environmental engineering.
- Master of Science (M.S.) in the area of Environmental Science.
Requirements for All Degrees:
- Must complete 30 semester hours with a cumulative grade point average of 3.00
- At least 16 semester hours must be at the 600 level
- Successful completion of the comprehensive examination (CIVL 600)
- Must not get below a grade of “B” in any 500 level course
- Must complete the core and elective requirements for the one of the two emphasis disciplines in Civil Engineering to earn the Master of Science in Engineering – Civil Engineering
In addition to the above requirements, the candidate for the Master of Science in Engineering degree in Civil Engineering (either Water Resources Engineering or Environmental Engineering) must possess an undergraduate Engineering degree or have passed the Engineer-in-Training/Fundamentals of Engineering (EIT/FE) examination given by the State of California Board for Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors and Geologists prior to applying for graduation. Students who do not qualify under this condition will receive the Master of Science degree in Environmental Science upon completion of the program.
