The Master of Science in Civil and Environmental Engineering (Environmental Health Engineering track) program at Duke University addresses the consequences of society’s production and use of energy and materials, emphasizing approaches to protecting the health of human populations and predicting, monitoring and managing impacts on air, water and other global cycles.


Just as the environment plays a critical role in human health, human activities affect the health of ecosystems—and these two entities are intimately interconnected.

The Master of Science in Civil and Environmental Engineering (Environmental Health Engineering track) program and its department work closely with Duke's Nicholas School of Environment in numerous research and educational initiatives.
