offers MS in environment program
the environment has become a major concern of everyone as
natural resources continue to deteriorate in large proportions.
And who else can best respond to this except those equipped
with the know-how and state-of-the-art facilities.
Next school year, the College of Engineering will offer the
MS in Environmental Engineering and Management program to
working professionals. The graduate program emphasizes an
integrated approach to engineering design and problem-solving.
Unlike the traditional environmental engineering program that
focuses on the end-of-pipe (pollution control) mindset, it
places emphasis on the synthesis of engineering systems of
factories and infrastructure with ecological concerns.
The proposed program is designed to provide advanced and specialized
training for professionals with undergraduate backgrounds
in any of the traditional engineering fields such as chemical
engineering, mechanical engineering, industrial engineering,
electronics and communications engineering, civil engineering,
or manufacturing engineering and management. Intended to provide
engineers with advanced training in the environmental discipline,
it also aims to infuse their professional practice with the
added dimension of environmental consciousness. Students may
focus on specialized fields of environmental engineering and
management such as Solid Waste Management, Wastewater Management,
and Air Quality Management.
Upon completion of the degree, they are expected to either
continue to practice in their respective fields with an enhanced
consciousness of environmental issues, or begin practicing
as specialized environmental professionals.
