What will I learn?

Environmental engineers design and apply technologies to resolve issues of environmental concern. They design systems that produce safe drinking water, treat wastewater so that it can be reused and/or safely returned to the environment, accommodate municipal and hazardous waste, mitigate air pollution, and protect public health. They use engineering and ecological principles to protect and enhance the natural environment, including erosion and sediment control, pollution abatement, watershed management, impaired waters diagnostics, and wetland and ecological restoration.

Focus areas of the program include water chemistry; water and wastewater treatment; water quality; hydrology; groundwater remediation; environmental microbiology; pollutant fate and transport; stream restoration, sustainable design, and air pollution. Environmental engineering is a broad and interdisciplinary field, and the program emphases are chemistry, microbiology, water resources, and fluid mechanics.
