Graduate Programs

The WPI Master of Science program in Environmental Engineering is constructed, with consideration for a student’s particular areas of expertise and interest, to result in a deep and comprehensive understanding of the technical, professional, and ethical aspects of human interaction with the surrounding environment.

From water and wastewater treatment design to environmental pollutant modeling, brownfield redevelopment to watershed assessment and protection, the curriculum at WPI gives students both theoretical and practical experiences, and the opportunity to conduct cutting-edge research. Offered both online and on campus through the Civil & Environmental Engineering department, this degree combines engineering knowledge with hands-on problem-solving opportunities to build a solid foundation for a career.
