  Graduate School-New Brunswick 2017 Programs, Faculty, and Courses Bioenvironmental Engineering 116 Program  
Graduate School-New Brunswick

The graduate program in bioenvironmental engineering offers a master of science (M.S.) degree in bioenvironmental engineering. Students can specialize in areas of study such as air pollution, bioremediation of environmental contaminants, environmental restoration, point and nonpoint source pollution, solid and hazardous waste treatment, surface and groundwater modeling, sustainable engineering, waste gas treatment, water and wastewater treatment, and controlled environment engineering.

Successful applicants are expected to have completed an undergraduate engineering degree from an Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology-accredited program or from a foreign institution with an equivalent program. The M.S. program offers two plans: (a) 24 credits of coursework, 6 credits of research, and a comprehensive oral examination that includes the defense of a written thesis; or (b) 30 credits of coursework, submission of an approved critical essay, and a comprehensive oral examination.

Core Courses: All students are required to take the following three lecture courses and one seminar course:

16:375:510 Pollution Microbiology (3)
16:375:517 Applications of Aquatic Chemistry (3)
16:375:523 Environmental Fate and Transport (3)

16:116:611 or 612 Seminar in Bioenvironmental Engineering (1) or 16:117:612 or 613 Seminar in Environmental Science (1)

Electives: The remaining courses may be selected from the following:

16:116:507 Environmental Systems Analysis (3)
16:116:508 Instruments in Bioenvironmental Engineering (3)
16:116:697,698 Special Problems in Bioenvironmental Engineering (BA,BA) 16:180:562 Design of Water and Wastewater Treatment (3) 16:180:563 Advanced Hydrology (3)
16:180:566 Sediment Transport (3)
16:180:574 Groundwater Engineering I (3)
