An interdisciplinary graduate program brought to you by the Civil Engineering department.
The Environmental Engineering (ENVE) Graduate Program prepares students and researchers to address environmental problems by providing innovative solutions for challenges related to areas such as water delivery, waste treatment, flood and drought mitigation, and pollution prevention and remediation. The program emphasizes a multidisciplinary, pragmatic, systems-oriented approach to green design and sustainable infrastructure implementation.
Graduate Degree Programs
The graduate degree programs offered in the Environmental Engineering (ENVE) Graduate Program include:
We also offer a three-course based Environmental Engineering certificate program.
The Environmental Engineering (ENVE) Graduate Program draws upon the strength of faculty in various areas of expertise within the College of Engineering and Mines as well as various departments across the UND campus. Students within the program can take a mix of approved graduate courses in departments such as Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Geology & Geological Engineering, Energy System Engineering, Geography & GIS, Biology, Earth System Science & Policy, and Aviation. The students can ask faculty from these departments to join their supervisory committees.
Graduate Program Objectives
The objectives of the ENVE program are to:
- Educate and train students to solve environmental problems arising from increasing population growth and sustainability challenges using an interdisciplinary approach
- Promote problem-solving via the manipulation of processes that may include a myriad of biological, chemical, ecological, hydrological, physical, economic, and social processes
- Promote research for managing limited natural resources and ecosystems for generations to come
The Environmental Engineering program is hosted by the Department of Civil Engineering and is coordinated by the Graduate Program Director of Civil & Environmental Engineering.
Application to the Program
Application for admission to the ENVE program is through UND’s School of Graduate Studies.
