Faculty: Jeremy Redman, Ph.D.
The Environmental Engineering area specialization within the MSCE degree program at CSULB requires a minimum of 18 units of approved 500- and 600-level courses and a minimum of 12 units total of approved mathematical analysis and elective courses, as specified below.
Each student's program must satisfy all requirements of the university, college, and department, and must contain the equivalent of ten (10) or more units of design, as determined by the department's graduate coordinator. Any student who did not take CE 364 (Environmental Engineering) as an undergraduate, or its equivalent at another institution, has to take it as a deficiency course (not to count towards the MSCE or MSE degrees).
During the first two weeks of his/her first semester as a graduate student at CSULB, the student should make an appointment to meet with the graduate coordinator, who will assign him/her to one of the environmental area faculty.
The 18-unit graduate course requirement shall include at least four (4) from the following courses:
All MSCE degree programs must include one unit of CE 696 (Research Methods) and for non-thesis students, three units of CE 697 (Directed Studies). Students who elect to take the thesis option must enroll in six units of CE 698 (Thesis).
The six-unit mathematical analysis requirement shall be satisfied by including any two (2) courses from among:
CE 500 and CE 501 cannot be included among the "minimum of 18 units of approved 500- and 600-level courses".
