Earth System and Environmental Engineering ( ESE) program is a multidisciplinary program designed to provide a broader foundation in the engineering and sciences, allowing students to take classes in a variety of departments both inside and outside of the School of Engineering. ESE allows students to focus their studies on environmental issues more than is possible in other traditional engineering department and programs. ESE provides a solid interdisciplinary curriculum that is necessary for creating real-world solutions to local, regional, and global environmental challenges in meeting societal demands for fresh water resources, safe air quality, and sustainable energy without causing adverse impact on the Earth’s resources.
ESE faculty are involved in cutting-edge research with government agencies like NOAA, NASA, USDOE, NSF,New York City DEP, and industry leaders such as Raytheon and Lockheed Martin, among others. Research activities in ESE are real-world goal oriented in fields such as climate impacts, air pollution, water resources, waste management, stormwater management, land preservation , vegetation health and many more environmental fields.
Students in this program can pursue the Bachelor of Engineering (BE) degree in Earth System Science and Environmental Engineering; the Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Environmental Earth System Science; the Master of Science and Professional Science Master (MS) in Earth Systems and Environmental Engineering. Doctoral degree associated with ESE is possible thru Earth and Environmental Sciences (EES), Civil Engineering (CE), Mechanical Engineering (ME, or Chemical Engineering (Chem E.).
Students in this program are engaged with industry professionals enabling a holistic approach to creative realistic, forward-looking applications. They could be engaged with a number of university wide institutes and centers affiliated with the ESE program such as NOAA Center for Earth System Sciences and Remote Sensing Technologies | NOAA-CESSRST, Earth Engineering Center |CCNY, and CUNY-CREST Institute.
