The Environmental Engineering program from Drexel University is concerned with protecting human, animal, and plant populations from the effects of adverse environmental factors, including toxic chemicals and wastes, pathogenic bacteria, and global warming. 

Visit the official programme website for more information


Programs in Environmental Engineering program from Drexel University  are available with specializations in air pollution, hazardous and solid waste, subsurface contaminant hydrology, water resources, water and wastewater, and sustainability treatment.

Key facts: 

Environmental engineers also try to minimize the effect of human activities on the physical and living environment so that we can all live more healthy and sustainable lives. 

This field builds on other branches of engineering, especially civil, chemical, and mechanical engineering. It also builds on information from many of the sciences, such as chemistry, physics, hydrology, geology, atmospheric science, and several specializations of biology (ecology, microbiology) and public health. 

Students who elect to study environmental engineering will become familiar with many of these areas because maintaining and improving the environment requires that problems be evaluated and solutions found using a multidisciplinary approach.

Other requirements

General requirements

  • In addition to the general entrance requirements for all environmental engineering applicants, entrance to the MS in Environmental Engineering program requires an undergraduate engineering degree from an ABET-approved institution. Students lacking this credential will be required to complete additional undergraduate courses to incorporate related elements of the functional equivalent of the ABET engineering BS degree. Typically, courses must be taken in computer programming, differential equations, linear algebra and fluid mechanics.
