Water Resources and Environmental Engineering Concentration

"Employment of environmental engineers is projected to grow 15 percent from 2012 to 2022, faster than the average for all occupations." —U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

Villanova University is nationally recognized for its Water Resources and Environmental Engineering program. Through a concentration in the Civil Engineering graduate program, or the Master’s degree option, students can take advantage of:

  • Cutting edge research and collaborative opportunities in the Villanova Center for the Advancement of Sustainability in Engineering (VCASE), the Villanova Urban Stormwater Partnership (VUSP), and the campus's Green Infrastructure Stormwater Research Park.
  • Distinguished leadership including VCASE and VUSP director Dr. Robert Traver, a sought-after stormwater expert and president of the American Academy of Water Resources Engineers; and Dr. Metin Duran, a nationally recognized environmental engineering expert in wastewater treatment and microbial water quality.

As an added benefit, all Water Resources and Environmental Engineering courses are taught in the evening, making the program feasible for both part-time and full-time students.
