Environmental Engineering and Science at Clemson University is concerned with the characterization and control of environmental pollution. Emphasis is placed on applying the fundamental principles of the basic engineering sciences through research and design to the solution of environmental problems in natural and engineered systems.


Students may specialize in one of five focus areas:

  • Process Engineering
  • Environmental Chemistry
  • Subsurface and Surface Processes
  • Sustainable Systems & Environmental Asssesment
  • Nuclear Environmental Engineering and Science.

Course work for the Master of Science (MS) Environmental Engineering and Science degree program at Clemson University can be completed in three semesters (about sixteen months). An oral defense is required for the thesis (MS) . A non-thesis MS option can be completed in one calendar year by taking courses during both regular semesters and in the summer. Three courses required of all master’s students cover fundamental physical, chemical, and biological principles of natural and engineered environmental systems. . Remaining course work to meet career-specialization goals is not restricted to EES courses. Students may pursue a specialty in process engineering, subsurface and surface processes, environmental chemistry, sustainable systems, and hazardous and radioactive waste management (including risk assessment, environmental health physics, or radiochemistry).
