Students in the master's and doctoral degree programs in environmental engineering may pursue advanced study in the areas of biological and chemical treatment of hazardous substances in soils, leachates, industrial wastes, and groundwater; the fate and movement of chemical contaminants in surface water, groundwater, and soils; and environmental chemistry.

Applicants for admission are expected to have a level of competency equivalent to that achieved by earning an undergraduate degree in environmental engineering, or in civil engineering with an environmental engineering specialization. The undergraduate program should have included courses in mathematics through differential equations, chemistry, physics (mechanics), fluid mechanics, computer programming, and the design of water and wastewater treatment processes.
