Environmental Resources Engineering: Dissertations & Theses

Dissertations & Theses Online

Moon Library at ESF has print copies of all Dissertations (Ph.D. level) and Theses (Master's and Undergraduate Honor's) completed at SUNY-ESF through 2015.  These items can be checked out of the library.

Digital ETDs are available at

Some ERE Titles

Here are just a few of the theses and dissertations that have been written by Environmental Resources Engineering graduate students in recent years. Title and author are given, along with the call number that can be used to look on the shelves in the Theses section (stacks 19-20) in Moon Library. You can check the availability of these titles by doing a catalog search by title or author, or find the full-text for some titles online by searching in the Dissertations & Theses @SUNY-ESF database (through 2017) linked to the left. Please note that beginning around 2015, the library no longer receives print copies of theses and dissertations and beginning in 2018 new dissertations and theses are available in Digital Commons @ ESF.

*Please note: Ph.D. dissertations are noted by the lowercase "d" at the end of the call number.
