Certificate – Contaminated Site Remediation

This current MENG concentration is not eligible for UConn visa sponsorship. Please contact ISSS for more information regarding programs that allow UConn visa sponsorship at international@uconn.edu. 

As ecological concerns increase, environmental engineering approaches are becoming more in demand and more complex. 

A certificate program in Contaminated Site Remediation can ultimately lead to a Master of Engineering (MENG) degree providing you the necessary knowledge at an advanced level to engage in the design of contaminated site investigations, remediation, and redevelopment. 

Specifically, the Contaminated Site Remediation Certificate will train you to: 

  • Use appropriate tools and techniques for the planning and design of site investigations and waste containment systems 
  • Understand physical, chemical, and biological processes governing contaminant fate and behavior in the subsurface 
  • Apply the fundamental physical, chemical, and biological principles of soil and groundwater treatment methods to design comprehensive remediation strategies for contaminated sites 

Fully online courses with synchronous and asynchronous coursework provide students with necessary depth (beyond the undergraduate level) in a cohesive way in various related aspects of site characterization and remediation.  

All students apply and are admitted to the UConn Graduate School. Credits earned within the certificate can be applied towards a Master of Engineering (MENG). 

Please visit the Contaminated Site Remediation Certificate Plan of Study.

Environmental EngineeringMaster Degree

After completing the certificate program, students will have 12 graduate credits that can be applied toward a Master of Engineering degree in Environmental Engineering.
