About the Program
The two paths of the Environmental and Water Resources Engineering program of the University of Massachusetts Amherst are the research option and the coursework option. The specific degree requirements and the appropriate degree depend on your undergraduate background and if the degree is research based or not.The research option is usually followed by students receiving financial support in the form of a research or teaching assistantship (RA, TA). The coursework option is designed to be completed in 9 to 12 months; students pursuing this option receive no or partial financial assistance. Students who have been admitted into the program without an engineering baccalaureate must make up prerequisite coursework at the basic level of undergraduate engineering in order to be eligible for the M.S. degree.
