Graduate Programs at Clemson University

The Department of Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences[] Hydrogeology (M.S.)— The interdisciplinary program in hydrogeology provides an opportunity to learn the principles and practice of hydrogeology, with particular strengths in monitoring and modeling groundwater systems, multiphase flow and transport, environmental remediation, carbon sequestration, hydromechanics, and hydrogeophysics. Environmental Engineering & Science (M.S., M.Eng., Ph.D.)— The interdisciplinary EE&S program utilizes fundamental principles of basic science and engineering to solve environmental problems in natural and engineered systems, with particular strengths in water quality, environmental remediation, water and wastewater treatment, hydrogeochemistry, fate and transport of environmental contaminants, environmental sustainability, and the biogeochemical cycling of metals, nutrients, and organic contaminants. Biosystems Engineering (M.S., Ph.D.)— The BE program utilizes fundamental engineering and science principles for the management of non-point source pollution, waste management, water quality, watershed hydrology, erosion and sediment control, irrigation, and drainage. The Department Civil Engineering (M.S., M.Eng., Ph.D.)[] The Applied Fluid Mechanics program in CE offers advanced study in hydraulics, hydrology, and coastal engineering, covering a variety of scales such as flow of groundwater through pores in soil to the hydrodynamics of tidal estuaries and coastal seas. Environmental Toxicology Program (M.S., Ph.D.) [] The interdisciplinary Entox program utilizes principles from molecular biology, biochemistry, environmental chemistry, geochemistry, social sciences, computer science, etc., to determine the fate, effects, and risks of toxicants on the environment, wildlife, and human health. Specific strengths include chemical fate, bioavailability, biological effects, toxicokinetics, and mechanisms of action in aquatic systems.
