Admission Requirements:
General Requirements
No minimum grade point average is required for admission, however in general a GPA > 3.25 is expected in combination with a superior record of academic achievement.  The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is required of ALL applicants (subject test not required).  The results of this test, together with the academic record and professional recommendations, form the basis for admission decisions and the awarding of financial assistance.

Applicants for the ESE MS degree are expected to have completed at least one year of calculus, physics, and chemistry, have some background in Fluid Mechanics, and have obtained a B.S., B.E. or equivalent degree from an engineering or science program. Course deficiencies, as determined by the Admissions Committee, should normally be removed before the first semester but must be removed before the start of the second semester. This course work may comprise an additional semester of study for which graduate credit cannot be granted.

Environmental Engineers provide the knowledge, leadership and guidance needed to improve the quality and ensure the sustainability of our natural world - from the water we drink to the air we breathe. 

Environmental Science and Engineering Master's and Ph.D. degrees span the science and engineering disciplines. The programs investigate how science or engineering impact and are affected by the environment in a broader context.  U.S. News America's Best Graduate Schools 2011 ranks Clarkson as 38th in Environmental Engineering/Environmental Health.
