At NC State, students will be part of one of the largest environmental engineering programs in the U.S. and a vibrant research community addressing a wide range of policy-relevant topics. NC State is also a great place to undertake air pollution research. Students will have opportunities to interact with many researchers working on air quality and environmental modeling across different academic departments and institutions. The Triangle region offers excellent research and career-related resources for air pollution engineers. In addition, Raleigh is an excellent place to live.

Financial support for graduate students covers tuition and salary while they complete their degrees. Graduate applications should be submitted to the Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering, preferably by Dec. 15.
