The program focuses on the role of physical sciences in the protection of the environment and pollution remediation. This interdisciplinary program builds on the strengths of a technological university with strong foundations in basic and social science. Students are exposed to a diverse curriculum that includes chemistry, biology, toxicology, geosciences, waste treatment and regulatory/policy issues. This enables students to acquire the skills needed for solving environmental problems, complying with environmental regulations and finally to be eco-conscious scientists.
The core faculty is multidisciplinary with strengths in chemistry, geology, engineering and biology. Affiliated faculty have strengths in civil/chemical engineering, material science, and environmental policy. Graduates of the program have secured employment in both the public and private sectors including: environmental consulting firms, pharmaceutical/chemical industries, and state/federal regulatory agencies. Graduates have also entered doctoral level programs in environmental science, pursued careers in law and medicine.
