Environmental Engineering

The environmental engineering faculty are focused in several research areas, including optimization of advanced oxidation processes, engineered and natural photochemical transformation of pollutants, fate and transport of manufactured nanomaterials, drinking water membrane treatment, interactions between energy and environmental systems and policy, sediment remediation, mitigation of acid mine drainage, coal combustion byproduct reuse, contaminant transport in groundwater and surface water, ecological engineering mechanisms that control the interaction between the atmosphere and the land surface, 3D modeling of coastal and ocean surfaces, and research on unit processes, as well as environmental studies on applied chemistry and biology. The Ohio Water Resources Center is an initiative in the department.

The Ohio State University (OSU) Environmental Engineering program is seeking highly motivated Master’s and Doctoral students to conduct graduate research across a range of state and federally-funded energy, environmental, and water resources related projects beginning Fall 2014 in the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Geodetic Engineering (CEG).
