The Department of Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences (EEES) offers the following degree programs: the B.S. in Environmental Engineering; the B.S. in Earth and Environmental Sciences; the B.S. in Geology; and the B.A. in Earth and Environmental Sciences. The Environmental Engineering program is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).  The program incorporates a strong background in the fundamentals of engineering with a blend of science and advanced engineering courses.   The Earth and Environmental Sciences program combines a foundation in the related sciences and primary earth reservoirs (water, land, air and life) with pathways for specialization.  The Geology program provides a comprehensive curriculum that includes the fundamentals of geology with courses responsive to the needs of industrial employment sectors.  The Geology program meets the academic requirements for Pennsylvania State professional licensure. 

All EEES programs emphasize the value of integrative learning in the classroom, laboratory and field.  Modern laboratories are well-equipped to support a wide range of courses and research experiences.  Easy access to exceptional off-campus sites provides training in field methods that augment the curricula.  A dedicated computer laboratory for geospatial technology (Geographic Information System, Global Positioning System, Remote Sensing) supports all EEES programs and research/project activities in the science and engineering fields.
