Physical-Chemical Treatment of Aqueous Wastes
Analysis of physical and chemical processes in natural and engineered systems for water pollution control. Unit processes covered include, but are not limited to, aeration and gas transfer, sedimentation, filtration, coagulation/flocculation, absorption, chemical stabilization, ion exchange, disinfection. Design methodologies and operational aspects of treatment are also considered
Biological Treatment of Aqueous Wastes
This course provides an in-depth study of principles of biological treatment of aquatic wastes (municipal, industrial, and/or hazardous). Suspended and attached growth processes commonly in use are covered. Emphasis is given to design and operational aspects of activated sludge, trickling filters, and rotating biocontactors. On-site treatment processes are also covered.
Contaminant Fate and Transport in the Environment
This course covers the fundamental principles of contaminant behavior in the environment. Contaminant physical-chemical properties, transport, and transformation mechanisms affecting contaminant distribution among air, water, and solid domains are studied in-depth. Topics covered include, but are not limited to, environmental interface equilibria, advective and diffusional transport; biochemical exchange in atmospheric, aquatic, and terrestrial domains. Environmental modeling is also considered.
Environmental Law and Legislation
Review of techniques of enforcement of state and federal pollution control laws and regulations; effects on waste treatment criteria and design and evalution of municipal ordinances; preparation of environmental assessments and impact statements.

Financial Aid Opportunities
The University of New Haven Graduate School is an excellent value with reasonable tuition. Of course, you will still have bills to pay and the Financial Aid office can help.
Generally, one of the requirements to become a licensed Professional Engineer (PE) includes a having an earned undergraduate degree from an ABET-accredited program. Please note that as a master’s-level program this is not designed to, and is not sufficient to, meet the educational requirements for PE licensure. Individuals with non-engineering undergraduate degrees, degrees in disciplines outside of engineering, or international undergraduate degrees should contact the State where you intend to seek licensure to learn more about the PE licensing requirements. While you are able to submit your education credentials to NCEES for review, there is no guarantee that the M.S. degree will qualify you to be able to take the FE exam, the first step toward engineering licensure.
The University’s M.S. Environmental Engineering program
- Our curriculum does not meet the educational requirements for PE licensure in AL, AS, AK, AZ, AR, CA, CT, CO, DE, DC, FL, GA, GU, HI, ID, IL, IN, IA, KS, KY, LA, ME, MD, MA, MI, MN, MS, MO, MP, MT, NE, NV, NH, NJ, NM, NY, NC, ND, OH, OK, OR, PA, PR, RI, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VA, VT, VI, WA, WV, WI, and WY.
NOTE: If you have an earned bachelor’s degree from an ABET-accredited program, that earned degree could provide a pathway to the PE exam. The University offers six undergraduate engineering programs accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
