Historically, environmental engineering involved managing water quality (potable and wastewater sources), as well as municipal and hazardous solid waste. However, as society has progressed and the types and amounts of man-made substances entering the environment has increased, so too has the diversity of challenges faced by environmental engineers. For example, environmental engineers are now challenged with improving the environmental sustainability of efforts ranging from water management to energy production. Doing this requires that tomorrow’s environmental engineers be educated on a myriad of topics including sustainability, chemistry, process design and operation, and material science. Environmental engineering students must be able to take advantage of a full suite of engineering skills and diverse knowledge base. At the University of Wyoming our students are exposed to all of these topics through a combination of traditional lectures, active learning, and hands-on demonstrations. Program Requirements All Environmental Engineering M.S. students must take the following Core courses (9 hrs): Environmental Engineering Microbiology (ENVE 5425) Environmental Engineering Chemistry (ENVE 5430) Environmental Transport Processes (CE 5435) Students should also take at least one of the following Recommended courses (3 hrs): Advanced Biological Wastewater Treatment (ENVE 5410) Advanced Physical Chemical Treatment (ENVE 5450) Plan A (Thesis) students complete another 14 hours of Approved Elective coursework, at least 4 hours of Thesis Research (ENVE 5960), and write and defend their thesis. Plan B (Project) students complete another 18 hours of Approved Elective coursework and write and present their project.
