3Earth System Science and Environmental Engineering MissionProvide 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.
4Earth System Science and Environmental Engineering Goals and ObjectivesTo 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
5What is the PSM?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.is characterized by "science-plus," combining rigorous study in science or mathematics with skills-based coursework in management, policy, or law.is developed in concert with industry and is designed to dovetail into present and future professional career opportunities.
6Application deadline: May 15, 2014 About MS ESESTMasters in Earth System Science & Environmental Engineering (ESEST) officially began in Fall 2013 after the Dept. of Education approval in Spring 2013MS in ESEST allows students to take a rigorous academic approach that combines the basic engineering requirements with a thorough scientific foundation.Flexibility is achieved by choosing courses of interest from a large number of electives.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
