Course info


The environmental engineering program is based upon a foundation of science and engineering fundamentals. Students are prepared for a wide array of professional opportunities in environmental protection and remediation and possess the scientific and technical knowledge to identify, design, build, and operate systems that make modern society possible. The major areas of expertise that students develop include air pollution processes and control, water quality management, water and wastewater treatment, and global environmental issues. Students majoring in Environmental Engineering are well positioned for careers in the industry, admission into top graduate programs to conduct advanced research in environmental and chemical engineering, or pursue professions such as medicine or law.

Environmental Engineering Program Objectives

The program's educational objectives are to produce graduates who will have the ability to attain high levels of technical expertise to enable their achievement in diverse environmental engineering practice and research, or in allied careers, prepare them for graduate level education, and enable them to be successful members of the professional community.

General Education

A major goal of engineering is to contribute to the welfare of society. This contribution is best made when students have a broad understanding of the Humanities and the Social Sciences (HMNSS). This understanding is derived from the study of world history; political and economic systems; the ethnic, cultural, and religious diversity of the peoples of the earth; the arts and letters of all cultures; the social and natural sciences; and technology. Although not a formal part of the required HMNSS course of study for engineering majors, this understanding is strengthened by a stringent requirement in written communication (ENGL 1A, 1B, 1C). The requirements in the Humanities consist of a minimum of three courses: one course in World History; one from Fine Arts, Literature, Philosophy, or Religious Studies; and one additional Humanities course. Breadth requirements in the Social Sciences are similarly structured: one course from either Economics or Political Science; one course from Anthropology, Psychology, or Sociology; and one additional Social Science course. In addition, the campus breadth requirement in Ethnic Studies has the option of being incorporated into the above, or standing alone as an additional course. For depth, at least two Humanities or Social Science courses must be completed at the upper-division level and, at least two courses must be from the same subject area (for example, two courses in History), with at least one of them being an upper-division course.
