Earth System Science and Environmental
Engineering
Mission
Provide students with professionally oriented educational opportunities
to enhance their knowledge of theory, technical capacity, job-ready skill
sets in multidisciplinary earth system and environmental sciences and
engineering.
Earth System Science and Environmental
Engineering
Goals and Objectives
To educate a diverse student body in basic and applied academic and
research areas leading to new ideas, systems and solutions in the
environmental engineering, earth systems science and related fields.
To groom the next generation scientists and engineering by providing
appropriate internship opportunities to the students in private sectors,
industries, government agencies, and other academic institutions
What is the PSM?
• is an innovative, terminal graduate degree designed to
allow students to pursue advanced training and excel in
science while simultaneously developing highly-valued
business skills.
• is characterized by "science-plus," combining rigorous
study in science or mathematics with skills-based
coursework in management, policy, or law.
• is developed in concert with industry and is designed to
dovetail into present and future professional career
opportunities.
About MS ESEST
• Masters in Earth System Science & Environmental Engineering
(ESEST) officially began in Fall 2013 after the Dept. of Education
approval in Spring 2013
• MS in ESEST allows students to take a rigorous academic approach
that combines the basic engineering requirements with a
thorough scientific foundation.
• Flexibility is achieved by choosing courses of interest from a large
number of electives.
• Students are strongly encouraged to engage in cutting-edge
ongoing research at CCNY as well as industrial partners and federal
and local agencies through internships.
• Placement assistance is provided through the program.
