The Environmental Science and Engineering master’s program from the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering  at the University of Wisconsin, Madison teaches you how to apply science to solve complex environmental problems. 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, the Environmental Science and Engineering master’s program explores 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.

At UW–Madison, our graduate research program is dynamic. Engineering and environmental chemistry professors, visiting professors, academic staff members, and a cadre of research graduate and undergraduate students provide context for your studies. We sustain a broad range of research topics, so you can explore environmental chemistry, wastewater treatment, drinking water treatment, freshwater quality, environmental microbiology, bioenergy production, sustainable engineering design, and many more.

With a Civil & Environmental master’s degree with a named option in Environmental Science and Engineering, you are at the forefront of rapidly developing and world-changing innovations.
