The Master of Science in Environmental Engineering degree is offered through the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering in the Washkewicz College of Engineering. This program represents the engineering component of the cross-disciplinary, environmental academic studies program at Cleveland State University.
Although this program is designed for individuals with a bachelor's degree in engineering, non-engineering graduates also can take advantage of this program.
Faculty Research and Publications
Faculty research and publications reflect areas in which students may conduct their theses or project investigations. Faculty research areas include adsorption, waste-site remediation, pollution prevention, green manufacturing, industrial waste treatment, brownfields, air-pollutant control, biological treatment processes, waste recycle and reuse, solid-waste engineering, physiochemical treatment processes, soil decontamination, combustion-process emissions, energy conversions, risk assessment, environmental policy, and real-time environmental monitoring.
Current faculty information can be located on the Cleveland State University Faculty Profile page.
University-supported assistantships and graduate tuition grants are available to qualified graduate students on a competitive basis. Additional assistantships and support are available through the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering; the Environmental Institute; and external federal, state, and industrial grants of program faculty. Applicants should indicate their interest in assistantships or tuition grants on the Application for Graduate Admission.
Accelerated Program in Environmental Engineering

Admission to the graduate program in environmental engineering is open to qualified students with a baccalaureate degree in engineering or science. A minimum baccalaureate grade-point average of 3.0 usually is required. Applicants from undergraduate programs other than environmental, civil, and chemical engineering may be required to take additional courses.
The GRE General section is required if one or more of the following conditions is true:
- The undergraduate degree was not in environmental, civil, or chemical engineering.
- The undergraduate degree was awarded by a college or university outside of the United States, or by a Canadian institution not accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board of the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers.
- An unaccredited college or university awarded the undergraduate degree.
- The student's undergraduate cumulative grade-point average is below 2.75.
- The year of the baccalaureate degree precedes the date of application to the College of Graduate Studies by more than six years; however, in this case, the examination requirement may be waived, with program approval, if the applicant's undergraduate grade-point average is 3.0 or above.
If the GRE is required, the admission decision is based on the applicant's performance on the quantitative section of the GRE along with the undergraduate grade-point average. A minimum of the 50th percentile on the GRE quantitative is required, but this minimum score does not guarantee admission.
All non-native English speakers must demonstrate proof of English-language proficiency. Any individual who has earned a bachelor's (or higher) degree from a U.S. institution, in which the primary language of instruction is English, is not required to take an English-language proficiency examination. International students who want to be considered for teaching assistantships are advised to take the Test of Spoken English (TSE).
