Environmental Quality

Field Description

This minor field offers qualified engineers and scientists an opportunity to broaden their knowledge in physical, chemical, and biological areas related to environmental-quality problems and their control. It is intended to encourage interdisciplinary study. The objective is to understand human interaction with the environment.

Students in this minor take the combination of courses, seminars, and projects considered best for them. Master's degree candidates ordinarily take a minimum of three courses; the courses must be in at least two areas outside their major field. Doctoral degree candidates ordinarily take a minimum of five courses in at least two areas outside their major field.

This is a minor field. Application for admission is made only to the major fields. After matriculation, a student may select minor subjects from the major or minor fields.
