Program description

The MSE in sustainable engineering is a multidisciplinary graduate program ideal for professionals and graduate level students with engineering and physical science backgrounds who wish to design a flexible, online, individualized plan of study. Courses cover such sustainable engineering topic areas as energy systems and alternative energy production, water, transportation, earth systems engineering, industrial ecology, life cycle assessment, environmental technologies, green construction practices, and sustainable technology systems.

The goal of sustainable engineering is to enable long-lasting improvement of the human condition. Sustainable engineering transcends traditional engineering education by integrating considerations of complex social, environmental, political, and economic factors into engineering theory and practice in order to achieve more economically, technically, environmentally, institutionally and socially efficient and robust solutions.
