Overview

The Environmental Engineering collaborative specialization is an interdisciplinary collaborative specialization designed for students interested in taking a concentration of courses and conducting research in environmental engineering. It is open to MASc, MEng, and PhD students in the collaborating graduate programs listed above in the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering.

About 50 full-time faculty members in these departments carry out advanced research and teach postgraduate courses in a wide range of environmental engineering specialties.

The collaborative specialization is administered and coordinated by the Division of Environmental Engineering and Energy Systems in conjunction with the participating departments and the School of the Environment.

Upon successful completion of the degree requirements of the participating home department and the collaborative specialization, students receive the notation “Completed Collaborative Specialization in Environmental Engineering” on their transcript and parchment.

Environmental Engineering: Master's Level

Admission Requirements

  • Students who wish to enrol in the collaborative specialization must first apply to and be accepted into a master's program in one of the collaborating departments. (See the departmental entries in this calendar for details on admission requirements and degree programs.) Students should generally apply to the department that most closely matches their undergraduate degree.

  • Once a student has registered in one of the collaborating departments, he or she may apply to and enrol in the collaborative specialization; this should be done no later than the end of the first session of study.

  • Application forms for the collaborative specialization are available from the division or any of the collaborating departments.

Program Requirements

  • Degree requirements include coursework and generally a research thesis or project, with details varying among the collaborating departments (see the departmental entries in this calendar).

  • Graduate courses and research are available in a wide range of environmental engineering specialties offered by the collaborating departments. Many additional courses relevant to environmental engineering are offered by the School of the Environment. See the calendar entries for the collaborating departments and the School of the Environment for lists of courses. More detailed information on faculty, areas of research, and courses is available on the division's website and from the division.

  • The EECP requirements are:

    • ​​​Completion of a concentration of study in environmental engineering as demonstrated in coursework and, where it is part of the degree requirement, a thesis or project. This is generally met through the student's home department degree requirements.

    • Completion of one non-engineering course with substantial interdisciplinary content and student interaction that is related to the environment but is outside the student's technical field. A list of approved courses is available on the division's website.

    • Participation in EDE 3000H, the Environmental Engineering Research Seminar Series, for at least two sessions. This is mandatory for MASc students and recommended for MEng students.​

Environmental Engineering: Doctoral Level

Admission Requirements

  • Students who wish to enrol in the collaborative specialization must first apply to and be accepted into a doctoral program in one of the collaborating departments. (See the departmental entries in this calendar for details on admission requirements and degree programs.) Students should generally apply to the department that most closely matches their undergraduate or master's degree.
