The normal requirement for admission into the Ph.D. Program in Environmental Engineering is completion of either a Master's degree in Environmental Engineering, or a Master's degree in an engineering discipline with an environmental specialization. Students wishing to enter the program who do not have either of these backgrounds will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Additional course requirements may be specified in some cases. Students who have been admitted to a master's program may be admitted into the Ph.D. program, without completing their master's program, if they demonstrate: (1) outstanding academic performance by completing at least 2.5 credits of course work that fulfil the breadth requirements as specified in the Master's degree requirements with a CGPA of A- or higher, and (2) significant promise for advanced research and the ability to defend their Ph.D. proposal in the first year of their Ph.D. program.
