Environmental Engineering

Our program draws from Duke's Pratt School of Engineering and the Nicholas School of the Environment--so you get the best of both faculty. As an MEng student, you will take Core Industry Preparatory Courses and an Internship, Departmental Requirements, and you can further individualize their studies through intense training in one of three areas of Advanced Specialization:

  • Ecohydrology and Environmental Fluid Dynamics
  • Environmental Process Engineering
  • Environmental Engineering and Public Policy

Risk Engineering

Students in our Master of Engineering (MEng) in Risk Engineering learn from faculty experts in the use of statistical decision theory to assess the potential for exteme events, and the costs and benefits of the consequences of those events. Graduates from this program will be prepared to work in sectors as varied as risk assessment, engineering and business consulting, insurance, financial engineering, and infrastructure analysis, and more. Our MEng-Risk Engineering students explore concentration areas including:

  • Environment and Population Health
  • Materials and Structures
  • Energy and Climate Systems
