Solutions Course

During the second year, Environmental Science and Engineering students focus on the Solutions Course.

The Solutions Course consists of a supervised research project directed towards the solution of a current environmental problem. The intensive research effort in the Solutions Course typically occurs over a 12-15 month period, and leads to one or more peer-reviewed journal articles.

Although Solutions Courses take many forms, from field studies or laboratory projects to application of models and database analyses, they typically involve technical problems with policy implications. Concurrently with the Solutions Course, students participate in departmental seminars which focuses on developing oral presentation and technical writing skills.
