The online Master of Engineering degree in Climate Change Engineering and Policy (M.Eng.[CCEP]) offered by George Washington University prepares professionals with technical and non-technical backgrounds to guide their organizations to better understand climate change and to develop mitigation strategies that shrink their ecological footprint.
Climate change is a worldwide issue that requires an in-depth look at the intersections of technology, policy and business. Our faculty linked those fields to develop the M.Eng.(CCEP) program specifically for those who wish to understand industry-recognized frameworks and methodologies for climate science, economics, energy and sustainability—as well as the political forces impacting them—to improve life on the planet now and in the future.
This fully-online program teaches students how to conceptualize key strategic considerations associated with climate change in the public, private, and non-profit sectors. Students will study climate mitigation and adaptation approaches, including market-based incentives to lower greenhouse gas emissions and reduce pollution through regulatory measures like carbon taxation and cap and trade.
Interdisciplinary coursework explores techniques to preserve natural resources, advance global economies, and secure the long-term welfare of humans and animals. Students will analyze such technologies as the Community Microgrid as a cost-effective, efficient approach to increasing clean energy at local levels, and nanotechnology as a sustainable way to detect and treat impurities in surface water, groundwater and wastewater.
