Environmental Engineering (ENV)
The Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET.
The mission of the Department of Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences is to provide the knowledge and skills for environmental engineering graduates that gives them a sound basis for professional practice and for life-long learning.
This emphasizes the student's learning of fundamental principles of environmental engineering, understanding environmental resource problems in their technical, ecological, socio-political, economic, and ethical context, and proficiency in the use of engineering methods to analyze and solve challenging engineering problems.
This Is Not a Desk Job.
Environmental engineers design pollution prevention (P2) and energy efficient (E2) systems to improve air and water quality and effectively manage waste.
Our laboratories offer our students hands-on, learn-by-doing opportunities. We conduct indoor and outdoor air sampling and testing, environmental and field-testing of soil samples, and preparation of rocks and minerals.
