The Environmental Engineering curriculum of this degree program aims to prepare students for professional practice and graduate study in the field of environmental engineering. The program emphasizes the application of engineering science to the preservation and management of the environment. It provides a strong background in the basic and engineering sciences and a variety of courses in several environmental areas including water and wastewater treatment, solid and hazardous waste management, air pollution control, transport and fate of pollutants, and environmental chemistry and microbiology. The program allows students to pursue a series of elective courses suited to individual interests and goals. With careful planning, students can also earn a minor to complement their major.
Adjustments in the program can be made to accommodate transfer students from accredited two- and four-year institutions so they may develop their programs of study as soon after admission as possible.
There are various opportunities available to students to enhance their educational experience. These include co-op/internship, undergraduate teaching assistantship, undergraduate research assistantship, junior year aboard, etc. For more information about this program, the faculty and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, please refer to the Undergraduate Student Handbook.
