Curriculum: Research degree comprised of advanced technical coursework and a thesis (MS) in a chosen discipline. Professional Interests: Research or technology development in industry or government. Ideal Candidates: Seeking a career in a research environment or want to use a master's program as preparation to apply for a doctoral program Interested in working in areas such as technology development and product design Willing to work in interdisciplinary research groups to gain practical research skills Interested in co-authoring published research and presenting to professional peers Environmental Process Engineering Graduate study in environmental engineering is highly interdisciplinary and offers students tremendous flexibility in crafting a graduate program that suits individual interests. Research focuses on phenomena that govern the origin, transport, transformation and impacts of contaminants on our environment and technologies for reducing the associated risks to human health and the environment. Research includes chemical processes that affect the fate of trace metals in the environment, transport and impacts of nanomaterials, molecular biological methods to monitor and improve performance of engineered microbial systems; biodegradation of organic contaminants, development of advanced membrane processes for water treatment and reuse, energy technologies and their impacts, and the properties, measurement and effects of ambient aerosols. In addition to courses offered within the Pratt School of Engineering, students may take courses from Duke's professional schools and institutes including the Nicholas School for the Environment and Earth Sciences, the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, and the Sanford Institute of Public Policy. Within the MS/PhD course and research opportunities offered for Duke graduate environmental engineering students, there are two tracks of study encompassing water resource engineering, hydrology, environmental fluid dynamics, and chemical and biological aspects of pollution of water, atmosphere, and soil, among others.
