Program Information


The M.S.E.S. degree provides a student with the opportunity to earn the advanced degree with coursework and a required research thesis. Students must have an accredited first degree in engineering or complete a list of makeup engineering coursework. A Master's International Program in Civil & Environmental Engineering allows students to combine their graduate education and research with engineering service in the Peace Corps. Many of the departments graduate courses are offered on weekday evenings, which permits part-time and FEEDS (Florida Engineering Education Delivery System online) students the opportunity to seek a graduate degree.

Major Research Areas
The field of Environmental Engineering has long been known for its breadth and ability to adapt to the new technological, societal, and global problems facing the environment. Major research areas include water quality engineering; air quality engineering; fate and transport of contaminants in the environment; environmental biotechnology and nanotechnology; waste management; sustainability and ecological engineering; surface water hydrology and hydraulics; and groundwater hydrology. Other focus areas include water reuse, green engineering, renewable energy, fate of emerging contaminants, and humanitarian engineering that has a developing world focus. Graduates of the programs are prepared for careers with governmental agencies, nongovernmental organizations (NGO's), or private industry and firms involved in planning, design, research and development, or policy. The environmental engineering laboratories provide state-of-the-art analytical equipment for chemical and biological research. Equipment includes an ion chromatograph, atomic absorption spectrophotometer, several gas chromatrographs, HPLC, ICP's, TOC machine, and environmental chambers. Field research sites are available locally and in several international settings that include developing world communities.

 

Accreditation Information:

Accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of College and Schools.

Admissions Information

Admission Deadlines

There is an established University deadline for the submission of admission application materials. Programs may have earlier deadlines than the University deadline. The deadlines reflected below are the earliest of the two deadlines. Graduate Programs may continue to accept and process applications after the published deadline if space exists within the program. Check with the Program for availability.

Application Deadline (domestic application)

Fall: February 15
Spring: October 15
Summer: February 15

International Students

Foreign applicants who are outside the U.S. are required to apply for a visa. Depending on the country of origin, this may take a few months. So the deadlines for these international applicants may be earlier than the Program deadline and these applicants must apply prior to both deadlines. They are strongly encouraged to apply as early as possible. Foreign applicants who are in the U.S. and are currently on a visa may use the domestic application deadline dates. In addition to meeting the published application deadline for the Program of interest, all immigration documents should be submitted as soon as possible, but must be on file at USF no later than the following processing deadlines:

Fall: February 15
Spring: September 15
Summer: January 15

Program Degree Requirements

A minimum of 30 credits of approved coursework beyond the bachelor level is required, 18 credits of core work and 12 credits of electives. Up to 6 hours of advanced courses in the student's area of specialty may be taken as electives. A thesis option is available to M.S.E.M. students who are interested in applied research. In the thesis option, 18 credits of core work, 6 credits of electives, and 6 credits of thesis are the minimum required.

The required 18 credits of core work are divided into three components: 12 credits in the general core area, 3 credits in the quantitative core area, and 3 credits in the job design core area. An undergraduate statistics course with a grade of C or higher is a prerequisite for the quantitative core area. Otherwise students must additionally take EGN 3443 Probability & Statistics for Engineers as a prerequisite.
