1 Dr. Liubov Kreminska General Advisor Earth System Science and Environmental Engineering Program (BE) Earth Systems and Environmental Science and Technology (PSM and MS)

2 Masters Program Earth Systems and Environmental Science and Technology (ESEST) A new PSM Option at City College of NY Reza Khanbilvardi Director, MS ESEST & PSM Program The City College of the City University ESES/REU Orientation Week June 11, 2014

3 Earth System Science and Environmental Engineering Mission Mission Provide students with professionally oriented educational opportunities to enhance their knowledge of theory, technical capacity, job-ready skill sets in multidisciplinary earth system and environmental sciences and engineering.

4 Earth System Science and Environmental Engineering Goals and Objectives Goals and Objectives To educate a diverse student body in basic and applied academic and research areas leading to new ideas, systems and solutions in the environmental engineering, earth systems science and related fields. To groom the next generation scientists and engineering by providing appropriate internship opportunities to the students in private sectors, industries, government agencies, and other academic institutions

5 What is the PSM? terminal graduate degree is an innovative, terminal graduate degree designed to allow students to pursue advanced training and excel in science while simultaneously developing highly-valued business skills. science-plus skills-based coursework in management, policy, or law. is characterized by "science-plus," combining rigorous study in science or mathematics with skills-based coursework in management, policy, or law. concert with industry is developed in concert with industry and is designed to dovetail into present and future professional career opportunities.

6 About MS ESEST Earth System Science & Environmental Engineering (ESEST) officially began in Fall 2013 Masters in Earth System Science & Environmental Engineering (ESEST) officially began in Fall 2013 after the Dept. of Education approval in Spring 2013 basic engineering requirements with a thorough scientific foundation MS in ESEST allows students to take a rigorous academic approach that combines the basic engineering requirements with a thorough scientific foundation. large number of electives Flexibility is achieved by choosing courses of interest from a large number of electives. industrial partners and federal and local agencies through internships Students are strongly encouraged to engage in cutting-edge ongoing research at CCNY as well as industrial partners and federal and local agencies through internships. Placement assistance is provided through the program. Application deadline: May 15, 2014
