New Graduate Program ...

The Department of Environmental Sciences is pleased to announce that the Rutgers University Board of Governors, at its December 2013 meeting, approved our proposal for a new M.S. program titled Bioenvironmental Engineering! This exciting new program will provide a pathway for engineering graduates to further specialize in environmental engineering and represents a logical extension of the Department of Environmental Sciences' ABET accredited Undergraduate Program in Bioenvironmental Engineering.

A Rutgers University Graduate Catalog entry will be appearing in the upcoming revised edition. A website presence on the Department of Environmental Science's webpage is also under construction.

For further information, please contact Prof. Christopher Uchrin, Ph.D., P.E., who has been appointed Graduate Program Director of the new program.
