Environmental Engineering

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

Environmental engineering is a subset of engineering that focuses on helping to save the environment by lessening the effects of pollution, climate change and waste contamination. Individuals who work as environmental engineers create, design and implement solutions to current as well as future ecological problems.

The United States of America is a large country in North America, often referred to as the "USA", the "US", the "United States", "America", or simply "the States". American colleges are funded by "tuition" charged to the student, which is often quite expensive, very commonly reaching into the tens of thousands of dollars per year.

Masters in Environmental Engineering in College Park in USA. The graduate program in Environmental Engineering provides a core background in water chemistry, environmental biology, and process dynamics. Advanced course work in water and wastewater treatment, bioremediation, pollutants and risk, ground and surface water hydrology, and air pollution is available in Civil Engineering and other allied departments. Environmental Engineering Research Original research is a primary component of a graduate program. Current fundamental environmental research will serve as the basis for solving the problems faced by future generations. Practical engineering research is necessary to solve current environmental problems. The following are some of the research topics that Environmental Engineering students and faculty have explored in the last few years: Airborne Transport of Pesticides Biological Nutrient Removal Bioremediation of Subsurface Contaminants Fate of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals in Wastewater Treatment Grass Swales for Treatment of Roadway Runoff Pathogen Fate and Treatment in Bioretention Suspended Solids Capture and Accumulation in Bioretention Dissolution of Nonaqueous Phase Contaminants Environmental Engineering research is conducted in four very well equipped, air-conditioned laboratories totaling approximately 3000 square feet.
