Candidates are required to complete an undergraduate engineering degree from an ABET-accredited university in either civil, environmental, mechanical, chemical, or other applicable engineering fields. Preference is given to qualified students that are currently enrolled in a qualified undergraduate program and planning to attend one of the 68 participating universities to obtain a Masters degree in environmental engineering, and agree to take two required core courses and three elective courses, from the approved list. Upon graduation, the student must work for one of the sponsoring firms/agencies for a two-year period in an engineering capacity.
To develop a funding program that will encourage qualified students who have a broad interest in various environmental engineering fields, such as municipal water, wastewater, solid waste, air quality, water resources, hazardous waste, sustainable engineering and energy recovery, to enroll in Master of Science programs in Environmental Engineering.
DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM
Funding per selected student, in the amount commensurate with in-state tuition and living expenses, specified by the universities, not to exceed $10,000, toward a Master of Science degree in Environmental Engineering at pre-approved schools and involving pre-approved core courses would be provided. A consortium of public and private entities that employ environmental engineers with advanced degrees provides the funds for the Program (currently these include: AECOM, Black & Veatch, Carollo Engineers, CDM Smith, City of Phoenix Water Services Department, King County, Washington Wastewater Treatment Division, Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts and Parsons).
Students must complete a Master of Science degree and work for one of the sponsoring organizations for a minimum of two years. Students will be required to show they have taken the identified core and elective courses (see course list for the appropriate university: https://www.engineeringmastersfunding.org/Emastersfunding/universities.asp
); however, there will be latitude in taking other breadth courses. A student selected to receive funding will be required to sign a contract agreeing with the terms of the program. Applicants must have a legal right to attend school and work in the United States during participation in the program and the required two-year employment period.
