Workers in "smurf" suitsThe M.S. EnvE and the M. EnvE degrees require 30 and 33 credits, respectively, for graduation. The M.S. EnvE requires a thesis (included in the 30 credits) while the M. EnvE is a non-thesis program. A common set of Core Courses is required in both programs. In addition to the core, the student will select Supporting Courses based on career objectives and approved by her/his graduate committee. Fundamental knowledge contained in some lower division courses is essential to the program. Students who have not taken these, or similar, courses will be required to remove these deficiencies. Some of these Deficiency Courses must be completed prior to admission; others can be incorporated into the student's required program.
