A dual master's degree program focused on advancing sustainable engineering learning.
Introduction
Launched in the fall of 2007, the dual degree confers a master of science (M.S.) degree from the University of Michigan's School of Natural Resources and Environment (SNRE) and a master of science in engineering (M.S.E.) from the College of Engineering (CoE). Global climate change, energy security, ecological degradation, environmental threats to human health and resource scarcity are critical sustainability challenges for the 21st century. Sustainability is based upon the ability to meet societal needs within the context of economical and ecological constraints.

This dual degree provides the tools necessary to help meet those needs. The program trains graduate students to protect, restore and create engineered and natural systems that are socially, environmentally and economically sustainable. Graduates have the engineering and sustainability foundations to command jobs domestically and internationally with engineering consulting firms, research and development labs in the private and public sectors, government agencies and NGOs.
