The Civil and Environmental Engineering Department (CEE) at the UMass Amherst College of Engineering awards M.S. degree in Environmental Engineering through the Environmental and Water Resources Engineering Program. The research option is usually followed by students receiving financial support in a research or teaching assistantship (RA, TA). The coursework option is designed to be completed in 9 to 12 months; students pursuing this option receive no or partial financial assistance. Students who have been admitted into the program without an engineering baccalaureate must make up prerequisite coursework at the basic undergraduate engineering level to be eligible for the M.S. degree.
Faculty research interests include pharmaceutical contaminants in drinking water, climate risk management, earthquake engineering, green building technologies, intelligent transportation systems, transportation systems modeling, transportation safety, and sustainable water resources planning and management. We are renowned for interdisciplinary scientific research, including collaborations with the departments of Architecture, Electrical, and Computer Engineering, Geosciences, Mechanical, and Industrial Engineering, Microbiology, School of Management, and the School of Public Health.
