PhD Theses

PhDs Awarded in Environmental Engineering and Science  

Degrees in Environmental Engineering and Science were awarded beginning in 1971. Prior to that time, persons specializing in environmental engineering received their degrees in Sanitary Engineering. Recipients of the doctorate previous to 1971 are listed here if their advisor was associated with the environmental engineering speciality and their thesis topic was environmentally related.

Each listing includes the name of the person, the year of the degree, the title of the thesis, the name of the thesis advisor, and the recipient's current or most recently known position. The listing is in order of the year of receipt of the degree, from earliest to latest, and alphabetically within years. The listed whereabouts of some of our graduates may be outdated; if you have more recent information, please e-mail the webmaster.
