Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) in Environmental Engineering Carleton University




Course info


Environmental engineers ensure that we have clean water to drink, clean air to breathe, clean soils to grow our crops, and clean energy to sustain our growth. The goal of environmental engineering is to offer sustainable and green solutions to many of the issues and challenges facing our society, and to provide a clean and healthy environment for us and our ecosystem. Environmental engineers use engineering and science principles to design innovative treatment technologies that help to minimize our environmental footprint, prevent pollution, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve air quality, ensure drinking water safety, and achieve environmental sustainability.

The BEng program in Environmental Engineering is fully accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board. When you graduate from this program, you will meet the educational requirements for registration as a professional engineer.

A wide range of topics are covered in the program—from life cycle analysis and environmental impact assessment to the design of industrial wastewater treatment processes and waste containment systems for solid and hazardous waste management. At Carleton, we want our environmental engineering graduates to develop clean energy sources, reduce our environmental footprint, and protect our ecosystem, resources and public health. Carleton’s Environmental Engineering program mixes fundamental concepts and theory with analysis and design, so that our graduates can meet the challenges facing our environment.

The first year of the program is based largely on common core courses. In the second year, unique elements of the Environmental Engineering program are introduced, along with additional courses in biology and chemistry. You will take the first program-specific course (Process Analysis for Environmental Engineering) in your second year. Third year introduces environmental engineering courses that cover the unifying fundamental concepts and processes underlying the analysis and design courses offered in fourth year. Fourth year courses are applied and focus on the assessment and design of traditional and new innovative technologies for water and wastewater treatment, air quality control, waste management, and contaminated site remediation.

Future opportunities

As an environmental engineer, you will find employment opportunities in industry, municipalities, consulting firms, federal and provincial regulatory agencies, and research establishments. Your many options include designing treatment technologies and facilities, developing clean energy alternatives, providing safe drinking water, helping improve air quality and assessing waste management strategies.
