Emphasis in Advanced Water Technologies

water-buttonThrough the Emphasis in Advanced Water Technologies, students are able to gain in-depth knowledge of water treatment methods and design of treatment processes.

Students who complete the emphasis will have their emphasis notated on their transcript.

Students who are pursuing more than one emphasis, can only use maximum of one course that is shared between two emphases.

Eligibility: All MEng students in Chemical, Civil, and Materials Science and Engineering.

Course Requirements: Same as MEng requirements for the home department.
Civil Engineering: 10 courses, or 8-9 courses and 1 project.
Chemical Engineering: 10 courses, or 7 courses and 1 project.
Materials Science & Engineering: 10 courses, or 7 courses and 1 project.

Some courses may satisfy the requirements of multiple emphases. Students may double-count a maximum of one course towards the requirements of any two emphases.

Students cannot earn more than two emphases.
