M.S. degree

For the emphasis in hydrology, the student must complete 24 semester hours of course work plus 6 hours of thesis. The 24 hours of course work includes 13 hours of required courses (Hydrogeology (GEOL 505), Environmental Geochemistry (GE 503), Groundwater Mechanics (ENGR 636), and Contaminant Transport (ENGR 645)), 6 hours from an approved list of electives (GE 518, CE 541, CE 542, CE 543, ChE 545, GEOL 615, ENGR 537, ENGR 616, ENGR 637, ENGR 648), and an additional 5 hours as approved by the student's committee. Up to 3 hours of ENGR 695 (seminar) may be used as part of the required hours provided that the seminar schedule includes critiqued presentations by the enrolled students.


Ph.D. degree

For the emphasis in hydrology, the student must complete 48 semester hours of course work beyond the bachelor's degree plus 18 hours of dissertation. The 48 hours of course work includes 13 hours of required courses (Hydrogeology (GEOL 505), Environmental Geochemistry (GE 503), Groundwater Mechanics (ENGR 636), and Contaminant Transport (ENGR 645)), and 6 hours from an approved list of electives (GE 518, CE 541, CE 542, CE 543, ChE 545, GEOL 615, ENGR 537, ENGR 616, ENGR 637, ENGR 648). Remaining credit hours will be fulfilled with courses approved by the student's committee. Up to 3 hours of ENGR 695 (seminar) may be used as part of the required hours provided that the seminar schedule includes critiqued presentations by the enrolled students. Students must pass a written and oral comprehensive exam before completing the dissertation research.
