Online Programs 

Environmental Engineering Master's Degree

The Department offers a Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Environmental Engineering as an online option designed for non-resident students. Courses are offered in either synchronous (live weekday evenings) or in asynchronous (archived) mode and may be taken in either format during regular semesters. The degree can be obtained solely through ODU's online graduate courses or in combination with approved transfer credits from other institutions. Potential students must apply for and be admitted to the Old Dominion University Graduate School to pursue the degree.

Coastal Engineering Certificate

By successfully completing this CECP Certificate, you'll demonstrate a basic understanding of the physical sciences, engineering, economics, environmental, institutional-political-social, and aesthetic constraints that influence all coastal engineering design.

You'll learn alongside Master of Science and Ph.D. students in the four courses required to complete this certificate.

This certificate may also provide the necessary credentials for continuing education by state licensing boards and professional organizations.




ODU's Civil and Environmental Engineering Department is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, or ABET.
