Bridge Program

Students who do not have a bachelor's degree in civil or environmental engineering, but who want to obtain a master's degree in environmental engineering must complete a bridge program for their chosen area of specialization. These courses are not counted for degree credit. See the areas of specialization in this section for specific bridge programs. Please note that prerequisites for bridge courses also must be met. See the undergraduate catalog for descriptions of 100- to 400-level courses. Some of the bridge courses may be waived depending on the student's background.
