About

Duke University’s Master of Engineering in Environmental Engineering (with concentration in Ecohydrology and Environmental Fluid Dynamics) program will give you the comprehensive training an industry leader needs to have to protect our natural resources.

Overview

The Master of Engineering in Environmental Engineering (with concentration in Ecohydrology and Environmental Fluid Dynamics) program at Duke University is highly interdisciplinary and offers students tremendous flexibility in crafting a graduate program that suits individual interests. Research focuses on some of the most modern open problems in environmental fluid dynamics, hydrology and water resources. Ongoing research topics include: hydrometeorology (rainfall dynamics, land-atmosphere interaction, remote sensing), eco-hydrology (impact of hydroclimatic variability on ecosystems and feedbacks on the hydrologic cycle and local climate), contaminant transport hydrology (surface-subsurface interactions), water cycle dynamics and human health, and stochastic hydrology.

In addition to courses offered within the Pratt School of Engineering, students may take courses from Duke's professional schools and institutes including the Nicholas School for the Environment and Earth Sciences, the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, and the Sanford Institute of Public Policy. 

Research Opportunities

Within the MS/PhD course and research opportunities offered for Duke University graduate environmental engineering students, there are two tracks of study encompassing water resource engineering, hydrology, environmental fluid dynamics, and chemical and biological aspects of pollution of water, atmosphere, and soil, among others.
