Who should apply

Our interdisciplinary program attracts students with different backgrounds, not only in different engineering disciplines, but also from sciences (for example physics, applied mathematics,  chemistry etc. ).

However, even though the program is multi-disciplinary in nature, it is still technically rigorous and requires  high level mathematics through differential equations (4 semesters), 3 semesters of physics (including thermo-dynamics) and at least 1 semester of Computer Science Programming (with an average B grade)

Students who do not have an undergraduate degree in environmental engineering must complete some undergraduate coursework before being admitted.
