Flexibility to Learn Anywhere, Anytime

All UW–Madison Environmental Engineering courses are available online.

Convenient distance learning formats allow you to complete the degree from any location without interrupting your work and family responsibilities. Homework assignments are posted well in advance so you have time to plan.

Course materials and necessary tools can be accessed from any internet connection, anywhere. If you’re traveling you can still call in to participate in course web conferences without access to the internet.

Distance Education Designed for Theory and Application

Nearly all courses will conduct a weekly one-hour live session with classmates and faculty using online meeting tools. These sessions include class discussions, faculty lectures, student presentations and guest lectures.

Faculty will sometimes record their lectures and use the live sessions for interactive discussions. Student projects are typically presented during these times as well. Student attendance at the live sessions is required, however if you have an unavoidable conflict the sessions are recorded for later viewing.

Most of the courses require the completion of at least one or several student projects. Many of these projects are flexible and can sometimes be applied to applicable situations in your own workplace. Projects also allow you to focus on topics that hold particular interest for you, allowing for a degree of individual customization.

Assignments to Keep You Engaged and On Track

A typical week often includes a one-hour live discussion with faculty and classmates. These sessions give you an opportunity to talk about the week’s content, attend lectures, and present your work for feedback.

You will also interact with classmates and professors throughout the week when you participate in online written discussions. Participation in the online discussion is often part of the weekly course requirements. The discussion forums are where classmates learn from each other – you will find your peers to be a wealth of knowledge reflecting varied perspectives, experience and employer backgrounds.

Most weeks contain some reading assignments – textbooks, papers, articles or websites. Many courses also include weekly assignments requiring problem solving, writing, discussion or presentation. To provide you with feedback on your progress, some courses utilize online quizzes to test how well you’re doing.
