Why Sustainable Engineering?

The Sustainable Engineering M.S.E. is a multidisciplinary graduate program ideal for professionals and graduate level students with engineering and physical science backgrounds who wish to design a flexible, online, individualized plan of study. Courses cover such sustainable engineering topic areas as energy systems and alternative energy production, water, transportation, earth systems engineering, industrial ecology, life cycle assessment, environmental technologies, green construction practices, and sustainable technology systems.

The goal of sustainable engineering is to enable long-lasting improvement of the human condition. Sustainable engineering transcends traditional engineering education by integrating considerations of complex social, environmental, political, and economic factors into engineering theory and practice in order to achieve more economically, technically, environmentally, institutionally and socially efficient and robust solutions.

Fellowships through ASU and external resources, along with research and teaching assistant positions, offer many alternatives to fund your education expenses at ASU—often for multiple years or even the full course of study. Fellowship resources are limited, and many fellowships require U.S. citizenship or the right to work in the United States.

Fellowships are awarded on a highly competitive basis as part of the graduate program application process.
