Bachelor of Environmental Engineering


Environmental engineers integrate their knowledge of math, physics, chemistry, biology, and environmental science with engineering problem solving. Environmental engineers work on issues of sustainability, energy and climate change, green building design, provide safe drinking water, treat and properly dispose of wastes, maintain or improve air quality, perform ecological restoration of lakes and rivers, clean up contaminated land and groundwater, and help industry minimize pollution, among many other activities.

Students following the Civil Engineering curriculum have the opportunity, during their senior year to specialize with elective courses in the areas of Geotechnical, Transportation, Structures, Materials, Water Resources, or Environmental Engineering.
