The environmental engineering track is designed for students who wish to pursue a career related to the environment (engineering, law, business, or medicine) and for students who wish to continue on to advanced graduate studies in environmental engineering or a related earth science discipline. Course work in this track focuses on the analysis of, and engineering solutions to, environmental problems through combined study of the fundamental hydrological and environmental sciences and environmental engineering design.
The requirements in this track provide a foundation in civil and environmental engineering as well as study of water resources, atmospheric processes, and environmental pollution. Students study engineering design in both water pollution technology and sustainable building technology.
The program electives should form a coherent sequence of courses in the student’s area of interest.
This track is accredited by ABET under the civil engineering program requirements.
