Yale School of the Environment offers a course-based Master of Environmental Management and a Master of Environmental Science, that has a strong research component.
The Industrial Environmental Management (IEM) program aims to equip students with an integrated set of skills with which to tackle the complex, multifaceted environmental problems facing industrial and corporate managers. The core intellectual framework for IEM is the systems science of industrial ecology, which examines materials, water and energy in a common framework. Students can pursue specialization and certification through the M.E.M. program in Industrial Ecology and Green Chemistry.
The Master of Environmental Science provides a strong training in the skills of Industrial Ecology, focusing on quantitative analysis preparing students for jobs in industry, consultancies, and research. The program equips students with skills in carbon footprinting, life cycle assessment, and material stock dynamics to address issues such as energy and transportation systems, metal cycles, waste treatment and the circular economy. The degree includes a strong research component, where students get to work on real projects with CIE faculty.
The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree is conferred through the Graduate School of Yale University and the Doctor of Forestry and Environmental Studies (D.F.E.S.) through the Yale School of the Environment. Doctoral work is concentrated in areas of faculty research which, within the IEM program, is centered on enhancing and applying the concepts of industrial ecology.
The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree is conferred through the Graduate School of Yale University and the School of Engineering & Applied Science.
