Program Description:

In a world undergoing rapid ecological transformation, the role of environmental engineers, scientists and planners has become increasingly prominent. In the Johns Hopkins tradition of excellence, the graduate Part-Time Program in Environmental Engineering, Science and Management is one of the most comprehensive and rigorous professional environmental engineering, science, technology, planning and management programs in the nation. The program accommodates working professionals who wish to complete graduate degree requirements without interrupting their careers and provides them with skills necessary to address a broad array of modern environmental issues and capitalize on environmental protection and remediation opportunities presented by technology. Common to all program activities is recognition of the importance of obtaining a strong quantitative background in the environmental engineering, science and management principles that govern environmental processes.

In the program, students obtain an up-to-date level of understanding in the following interrelated academic fields:

Study of physical, chemical, and biological processes fundamental to understanding the environment fate and engineered treatment of environmental contaminants

Understanding the source and nature of waste materials that contribute to air, soil, and water pollution and relevant management and control technologies

Study of the transport and transformation of contaminants through environmental pathways

Knowledge of the pollution prevention and technologies and designs associated with the treatment and disposal of waste materials
