(30 UNITS)

The overall objective of this program is to provide students with practical information and technical knowledge on contemporary environmental topics and issues. Students will be trained for consulting companies, industries or as officials for local governments, as well as for state or federal regulatory agencies. At the end of the program, students will be prepared to sit for the professional engineering exam in environmental engineering.

Admission Requirements

Students must meet the CSU requirements for admission to a master’s degree program. Please consult the Graduate Admissions  section in this catalog for complete information. In addition, students with non-engineering baccalaureate degrees will be considered if they have completed: (1) mathematics through differential equations; (2) two semesters of college chemistry; (3) two semesters of college physics; (4) fluid mechanics; and (5) one undergraduate-level environmental engineering course (these deficiency courses may be taken concurrently while conditionally admitted into the program).

Program Completion Requirements

Continuation and completion of the program requires:

  • Registration, attendance and successful completion of the virtual initial orientation and midpoint symposium
  • The program is based on a cohort model. If circumstances force a student to fall out of the original cohort schedule, the student will be permitted to continue in the program, but will default to the next cohort cycle, provided the student remains in good standing
  • Accessibility issues - Special accommodations for disabled students will be made on an individual basis, as needed in compliance with the CSUF Catalog (online catalog at Disabled Services Handbook). Please contact the instructor and the program coordinator if this applies to you
  • Continuous enrollment in the program is required. There is a five-year completion time limit for the degree. For more information on the campus’ continuous enrollment and leaves of absence, consult Academic Programs at Graduate Academic Policies

Study Plan

The study plan consists of 30 semester units of coursework that must be completed with a minimum overall grade-point average of 3.0.
