New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) Courses
EvSc 600 Environmental Science Seminar (0) Current environmental topics of interest to the environmental professional presented.
Prerequisite: Graduate standing. Required every semester for environmental science graduate students receiving departmental or research-based awards and for all doctoral students.
EvSc 602 Special Topics in Environmental Science I (3) Topics of current interest in the environmental field. Prerequisite: Approval of graduate adviser in environmental science.
EvSc 603 Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (3) Explores safe operation of hazardous waste sites, as well as emergency responses to hazardous releases. Provides overview of OSHA regulations and NIOSH standards concerning toxicological hazards and medical surveillance requirements. Emphasis on recognition and monitoring of site hazards. Requires written health and safety plan and participation in a group problem involving simulated entry of a hazardous site, using actual protective equipment. Course satisfies the regulatory compliance mandates to meet 29 CFR 1910.120 for OSHA, with certification valid for one year.
EvSc 610 Environmental Chemical Science (3) Principles of physical, inorganic, and organic chemistry applied to understanding the origins of environmental pollutants: their transport, distribution, and decomposition pathways. Prerequisite: Graduate standing.
EvSc 611 Hazardous Waste Management (3) Overview of hazardous waste management; case histories; legislation and regulations; treatment, disposal, and cleanup technologies; sampling and analysis methodology; persistence and fate in the environment; and emergency response procedures. Prerequisite: Graduate standing.
EvSc 612 Environmental Analysis (3) Analysis of environmental samples studied from the acquisition of representative samples through sample handling, chain of custody, sample storage, analytical method selection, analysis, and data treatment. Prerequisite: Graduate standing.
EvSc 613 Environmental Problem Solving (3) Course designed to study solutions for current environmental problems. Students are asked to respond to an imaginary Request for Proposal (RFP) in writing and at an oral presentation before a team of technical experts. Solutions proposed in student RFPs must reflect knowledge of environmental science and technology in current use. Prerequisite: Graduate standing.
EvSc 614 Quantitative Environmental Risk Assessment (3) Applications of quantitative risk assessment concepts to the management of environmental problems. Prerequisite: Graduate standing.
EvSc 615 Global Environmental Problems (3) With an understanding that environmental problems are not restricted by geographical boundaries, students study relationships among the earth's temperature balance, global air circulation patterns, global energy needs, and control and remediation technologies. Prerequisite: Graduate standing.
EvSc 616 Toxicology for Engineers and Scientists (3) General principles of toxicology presented and applied to the assessment of acute, subacute, and chronic effects of hazardous and toxic chemicals. Qualitative and quantitative measures of toxicity and testing protocols addressed. Role of toxicology in risk assessment and risk management discussed. Prerequisite: Graduate standing.
EvSc 700 Master's Project (3) Written report requiring experimental or theoretical research or an extensive literature analysis. Prerequisites: Graduate standing and approval of graduate adviser in environmental science. Registration must be approved by an adviser. Students must continue to register for 3 credits each semester until completion and written report accepted. Only a total of 3 credits will count toward the degree.
EvSc 701 or 26:375:701 Master's Thesis (6)   Prerequisites: Matriculation for a master's degree in environmental science. Approval to register the thesis must be obtained from the adviser. Original research under supervision of a designated faculty member. Final product must be a written thesis approved by three faculty members: the student's primary adviser, one from the program, and one other faculty member. Once registration for thesis has begun, the student must continue to register for a minimum of 3 credits per semester until at least 6 credits have been completed and a written thesis has been approved. Only a total of 6 credits from this course counts toward the degree.
EvSc 702 Special Topics in Environmental Science II (3) Topics of current interest in the environmental field. Prerequisite: Approval of graduate adviser in environmental science.
EvSc 711 Advanced Environmental Analysis (3) Analysis of complex environmental samples studied, from the acquisition of representative samples through sample handling, chain of custody, sample storage, analytical method selection, analysis, and data handling. Collection and analysis of samples from air, water, soil, and biological systems discussed. Emphasis on the study of current literature. Prerequisite: EvSc 612 or equivalent.
EvSc 725 or 26:375:725 Independent Study I (3) Covers areas of study in which one or more students may be interested, but which are not sufficiently broad to warrant a regular course offering. Prerequisites: Written permission from associate chair for environmental science plus courses prescribed by supervising faculty member (not the student's thesis adviser).   Students may not register for this course more than once with the same supervising faculty member.
EvSc 726 or 26:375:726 Independent Study II (3) See description for EvSc 725.
EvSc 790 or 26:375:790 Doctoral Dissertation (BA) Prerequisites: Required of all students working toward the degree of doctor of philosophy. A minimum of 36 credits are required.  Approval of dissertation adviser necessary for registration. Candidates must register for at least 6 credits of dissertation per semester until 36 credits are reached. They then register for 3 credits per semester thereafter until a written dissertation is approved.
26:375:800 Matriculation Continued (E1)
