E2M is a unique, three-way partnership between the Barney School of Business and the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture, and extending to third party-business and industry in Greater Hartford. Coursework includes applied projects, such as formulating marketing and business plans for area companies. The Engineering Applications Center assists local businesses and industries in applying new techniques, and you will become involved through application projects, symposia, and forums. You may complete either program and receive your degree immediately, without waiting to complete both.
This partnership between the Barney School of Business and the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture (CETA) provides a broader focus for engineers moving into management and leadership tracks. The program requires a total of 60 credits – that’s 6 fewer credits than if you pursued the degrees separately. Students can earn both a Master of Engineering (MEng) and Master of Business Administration (MBA) within the framework of Excellence in Engineering and Management (E2M) Program.
Environmental engineering focuses on the protection of human health and the environment. Learn fundamentals related to air, water, and hazardous waste through a range of courses in areas such as water and wastewater treatment, hydrology, watershed management, and environmental regulation. All courses emphasize applied engineering with the appropriate theoretical underpinning as to understand why a particular approach is typically incorporated into current designs to meet today’s challenges. This is accomplished by having faculty members that bring decades of experience in the classroom.
Environmental Engineering Laboratory
Specialties include the advancement of physical, chemical, and biological processes for developing innovative solutions to current issues and challenges facing municipal water and wastewater treatment facilities.
