Major 

Environmental Engineering Graduate Major (MENG, MS, PhD, MAIS)

Print Version Print
College of Engineering | School of Chemical, Biological and Environmental Engineering


Graduate Areas of Concentration

Bioremediation, environmental fluid mechanics, environmental microbiology, environmental modeling, multiphase phenomena, subsurface flow and transport, water and wastewater treatment

The School of Chemical, Biological and Environmental Engineering offers graduate curricula leading to the Master of Engineering, Master of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Environmental Engineering. The ENVE program prepares individuals to apply mathematical and scientific principles to the design, development and operational evaluation of systems for controlling contained living environments and for monitoring and controlling factors in the external natural environment. Specific application areas include pollution control, waste and hazardous material disposal, health and safety protection, conservation, life support, and requirements for protection of special materials and related work environments, as well as emerging areas including sustainability, detection and treatment of emerging contaminants and their fate in the natural environment, water supply for a growing world population, and mitigation of the effects of climate change, among others. All programs are tailored to individual student needs and professional goals. A diversity of faculty interests, broadened and reinforced by cooperation between the school and other engineering departments and schools, and research centers on campus, makes tailored individual programs possible.

For more information, contact Dr. Gregory Rorrer, School Head, School of Chemical, Biological and Environmental Engineering, Oregon State University, Corvallis, OR 97331-2904, or email cbee@oregonstate.edu.
