Elective Subjects with Engineering Content
Students are required to take at least 48 units of Restricted Electives selected from subjects offered within or outside CEE to form a coherent program of study under supervision by CEE faculty.
Students are required to take at least 48 units of Unrestricted Electives. This requirement can be met by any combination of subjects of the student’s choosing.
The Bachelor of Science in Climate System Science and Engineering jointly offered between the Departments of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences, ensures a solid foundation of the necessary fundamental science, mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology with advanced study in how to model and analyze complex climate and environmental phenomena. Students also work together with their advisor to select elective subjects in a broad range of social science disciplines to develop an understanding of the political and social issues tied to addressing climate change. The MIT-centric major teaches hard analytic and computational skills and prepares students to use these skills to solve global-scale environmental problems. The major is particularly designed to combine earth system science together with engineering systems, with a flexible module of restricted electives to design your own course of study.
