The EVEN graduate program is administered by faculty from multiple CEAS departments, including Aerospace Engineering Science; Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering; and Mechanical Engineering. Courses required for the program are offered through the collaborating departments, with student credit hours assigned accordingly.

The Environmental Engineering M.S., Professional M.S., and Ph.D. program benefits from long-standing relationships of participating faculty with researchers in CU-Boulder institutes and federal laboratories in the area.  Furthermore, the program benefits from the strong reputation already held by the environmental engineering groups within the participating departments.  This reputation is evidenced by the fact that, for 2017, U.S. News & World Report ranked our Graduate Program 9th in the country (7th among public schools) among “Best Engineering Schools for Environmental/Environmental Health Engineering".
