The Centre for Environmental Engineering Research and Education (CEERE) in the Schulich School of Engineering (SSE) has the overall responsibility for the co-ordination and delivery of a comprehensive postgraduate program specialization in the interdisciplinary field of environmental engineering. All five engineering departments participate in delivering this SSE-wide environmental engineering specialization.

Applications for admission to the Faculty of Graduate Studies should be submitted to the engineering department that best matches the applicant’s undergraduate and/or postgraduate academic training.

1. Degrees and Specializations Offered

Degrees with an interdisciplinary specialization in Environmental Engineering:
Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)
Master of Science (MSc), thesis-based
Master of Engineering (MEng), thesis-based and course-based

Only the Master of Engineering degree is available for part-time enrolment

2. Admission Requirements

In addition to the Faculty of Graduate Studies, SSE, and home department requirements, the Environmental Engineering specialization requires:

Master of Engineering and Master of Science

A bachelor’s degree in engineering.

Note: Applicants with applied science undergraduate degrees may be considered, but additional undergraduate engineering courses may be required.

Doctor of Philosophy

A master’s degree in engineering, preferably in environmental engineering or equivalent.

Note: Transfer to the doctoral program without completing the master’s degree may be approved for exceptional students.

3. Application Deadline

See departmental and program sections in this Calendar for deadlines regarding submission of complete applications for students with international transcripts or with Canadian and US transcripts.

4. Advanced Credit

See "Engineering Programs" in this Calendar.

5. Program/Course Requirements

In addition to Faculty of Graduate Studies requirements and the course requirements described below, students should consult their “home” department in the Schulich School of Engineering for any additional program or course requirement(s).

Master of Engineering (Course-based Route)

Ten half courses. Environmental Engineering 603 and 605 are normally required, together with at least one of Environmental Engineering 621, 623, 625 627 or 635, and at least one other Environmental Engineering course.

Students with non-engineering undergraduate degrees may be required to take additional prerequisite courses at the undergraduate level.

Master of Engineering (Thesis-based Route)

A minimum of four half courses. Environmental Engineering 603 or 605 is normally required, together with at least one of Environmental Engineering 621, 623, 625, 627 or 635, and at least one other Environmental Engineering course.

Students with non-engineering undergraduate degrees may be required to take additional prerequisite courses at the undergraduate level.

Master of Science

A minimum of four half courses plus Environmental Engineering 601. Environmental Engineering 603 or 605 is normally required, together with at least one of Environmental Engineering 621, 623, 625, 627 or 635, and at least one other Environmental Engineering course. Students must successfully complete Environmental Engineering 601 twice before their thesis defence.

Students with non-engineering undergraduate degrees may be required to take additional prerequisite courses at the undergraduate level.

Doctor of Philosophy

For applicants with Bachelor of Science and/or Master of Science degrees in Environmental Engineering:

A minimum of two half courses plus Environmental Engineering 601. One of Environmental Engineering 621, 623, 625, 627 or 635 is normally required. Students must successfully complete Environmental Engineering 601 twice before their thesis defence.

For applicants with Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Engineering, but not in Environmental Engineering:

A minimum of three half courses and Environmental Engineering 601. Environmental Engineering 603 or 605 is normally required, together with at least one of Environmental Engineering 621, 623, 625, 627 or 635. Students must successfully complete Environmental Engineering 601 twice before their thesis defence.

For applicants with a bachelor's degree in Engineering, but without a completed master's degree:

A minimum of six half courses plus Environmental Engineering 601. Environmental Engineering 603 and 605 are normally required, together with at least one of Environmental Engineering 621, 623, 625, 627 or 635, and at least one other Environmental Engineering course. Students must successfully complete Environmental Engineering 601 twice before their thesis defence.

Students with non-engineering undergraduate degrees may be required to take additional prerequisite courses at the undergraduate level.

6. Additional Requirements

All full-time Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy students are required to register and participate in the Research Seminar course, Environmental Engineering 601. It must be successfully completed twice before the thesis defence.

7. Credit for Undergraduate Courses

Not applicable.

8. Time Limit

Expected completion time is two years for the Master of Science degree, and three years for the Doctor of Philosophy. Maximum completion time is four years for the Master of Science and Master of Engineering (thesis-based) degrees and six years for the Master of Engineering (course-based) and Doctor of Philosophy degrees.

9. Supervisory Assignments

All students are required to have a thesis supervisor before the second annual registration. For students in the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degree programs, a supervisor is normally appointed at the time of admission.

10. Required Examinations

Final thesis oral examinations follow the requirements of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and the home graduate program.

11. Research Proposal Requirements

None.

12. Special Registration Information

None.

13. Financial Assistance

See "Engineering Programs".

14. Other Information

See "Engineering Programs".

15. Faculty Members/Research Interests
