 Overview

Our graduate specialty in Environmental and Sustainability Engineering is a unique, broad based program that links theory with engineering design for environmental protection and sustainable infrastructure systems. The program provides an education for both traditional students and working professionals. Conveniently located in downtown Denver, we offer many evening courses for professionals across the Front Range, while also conducting world-leading research on urban infrastructure with cities in Colorado, nationally, and globally.

Within this specialty, we offer three degrees:

  • Master of Science (MS) in Environmental and Sustainability Engineering
  • Master of Engineering (MEng) in Sustainable Infrastructure
  • Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Civil Engineering or Civil Engineering Systems

 Programs of Study

We offer three degrees within this specialty:

Environmental and Sustainability Engineering

This track leads to a master of science (MS) degree awarded by the College of Engineering and Applied Science. This is a technical program for students with an undergraduate degree in engineering.

Sustainable Infrastructure

This track leads to a master of engineering (MEng) degree awarded by the College of Engineering and Applied Science. This is a more flexible program for students with undergraduate degrees in fields such as science, mathematics, or economics.

Doctoral Study

We also offer two doctoral degree programs through a coordinated program with the University of Colorado at Boulder. The PhD in Civil Engineering is a technical program for students with master degrees in engineering, while the PhD in Civil Engineering Systems is a more flexible program for students with master degrees in other fields.
