Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at The City University of New York is designed for students interested in the technical aspects of emerging environmental issues. A combined curriculum of science and engineering courses provides a foundation for a career in the scientific aspects of emission control, climate change, global warming, resource management, ecosystems, and environmental remediation. These broad areas will continue to drive environmental research for the coming decades with the goals of solving environmental problems and providing lawmakers with accurate information for developing sound environmental policies.
The EESS degree program is designed to connect to major existing environmental research programs at CCNY, including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Center for Cooperative Remote Sensing Science and Technology (NOAA-CREST) and the National Aeronutics and Space Administration Center for Optical Sensing and Imaging (NASA-COSI). Together, the curriculum and associated science and engineering research provide a superior basis for entry into technical careers in environmental and earth system science at local and federal levels and in related industries as well as government regulatory and policy arenas.
