Graduate Track in Air Quality
The department of Mechanical Engineering has several Degree Tracks from which graduate students pursuing MS and PhD degrees may choose. One of these is the Air Quality Track. This program trains students in the fundamentals of engineering (thermodynamics, fluids, physics, and math) while providing enrichment courses and a strong research experience in air quality. Students interested in obtaining degrees in this area should apply directly to graduate program in Mechanical Engineering Department. Students may also work with CAQR faculty while earning a PhD degree from the Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering Department.
Air quality is a major concern of research groups in several departments on campus. Likewise, there are numerous opportunities for pursuing a graduate degree in air quality at the University of Colorado in Boulder. Students may choose to collaborate with advisors in these areas and take elective classes offered by their departments while pursing a ME degree.
The college of engineering at the University of Colorado in Boulder offers a B.S. degree in Environmental Engineering (EVEN). This interdisciplinary program provides students with a broad range of skills from several engineering disciplines ( civil, chemical, mechanical) to address today's issues in environmental science. Within this program, students can elect to specialize in the air quality option. More information for prospective students can be found at the EVEN site for prospective students.
Opportunities for Postdocs
Prospective postdocs may apply directly to faculty members by email.
Further, it is valuable to consider the following opportunities that provide support for postdoctoral research in collaboration with national programs:
