About this program

Our society’s influence on the natural world’s ecosystems and resources has never been more prominent or problematic than it is today.

In order to better understand and address environmental challenges, environmental scientists and engineers provide technical solutions and advance innovations in environmental measurements, modeling, and control through the application of scientific and engineering principles.

Harvard has long been a pioneer in environmental education and research. This tradition continues today with faculty that are committed to teaching and researching engineered solutions to problems in the atmospheric, terrestrial, and aquatic compartments of the environment.

The PhD in environmental sciences and engineering covers topics in environmental technology, atmospheric sciences, environmental chemistry, microbiology, water management, energy, climate, and oceanography.

Students in environmental sciences and engineering PhD program study the fundamental processes and technologies underlying environmental systems, including natural and polluted waters and soils, the atmosphere, climate, and energy. Students learn to apply these principles to develop solutions to complex environmental problems and to mitigate human impacts on the environment.
