THE PROGRAM

The Departments of Biological & Agricultural Engineering (BAE), Civil Engineering (CE) and Chemical Engineering (CHE) at Kansas State University offer concentrations in environmental engineering. Graduate students enrolled in environmental engineering programs have access to faculty, coursework, and research facilities in these departments and outside the College of Engineering in the departments of Agronomy, Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, Geography, and Geology.

DEGREES AND CERTIFICATES

The 30-credit hour MS programs focus on developing a thorough understanding of various topics necessary in the professional practice of environmental and water resources engineering.  The MS programs may include 6-credit hours of research towards a thesis, or a 3-credit hour project.

The 60-credit hour Ph.D. program is designed to build upon the broad understanding of environmental engineering topics obtained during the MS program.  Individual doctoral programs then focus on building a comprehensive understanding of special topics within the fields of environmental, ecological and water resources engineering. The average duration of a doctoral program is four years. Students enrolled in the Ph.D. program have to pass a preliminary examination within two years of commencement of their program. To successfully complete the program, Ph.D. candidates have to defend a dissertation.

Graduate certificate programs are also offered in Air Quality and Geoenvironmental Engineering.
