Our program is multidisciplinary, so you gain a deeper understanding of chemistry, biology, and systems thinking to better approach your work.
In just one year (fall, spring, and summer), learn to comprehensively address practical problems associated with drinking water and wastewater treatment, air quality, environmental chemistry, sustainable design, energy efﬁciency, and solid and hazardous waste remediation. Additionally, some courses explore the combination of law and practice, so you discover how to develop and enforce environmental policies and regulations that forge the way for a greener future.
The Environmental Science and Engineering - Master of Science in Civil and Environmental Engineering program at University of Wisconsin Madison is recognized internationally for its strengths in the areas of wastewater treatment, water treatment, microbial ecology, modeling of microbial interactions, and the detection of air pollutants.
Our core faculty have particular strength in the biological aspects of environmental engineering, as well as water chemistry and air quality, and in the emerging areas of bioinformatics and biofuel production.
We conduct applied and fundamental research in both the natural and built environments. Laboratory experiments, field methods, molecular biology tools, pilot-scale treatment systems, analytical chemistry, and modeling approaches are combined to address scientific and engineering questions leading to a more sustainable water environment and better air quality.
