Environmental engineers are leaders in the application of engineering principles to improve and maintain the environment for the protection of human health, and for the protection of nature’s beneficial ecosystems. Government agencies, private consulting firms, and universities employ environmental engineers.

The Bachelor of Science Program in Environmental Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET — www.abet.org.

Educational Objectives:

The objectives of the Environmental Engineering Program are to have graduates who within the first several years following graduation are either

  • Working as a professional in an area closely related to the water environment or
  • Pursuing a graduate or professional degree.

Outcomes:

Students who qualify for graduation in the civil engineering program will have demonstrated the following: 

a.       An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering

b.       An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data

c.       An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints

d.       An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams

e.       An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems

f.        An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility

g.       An ability to communicate effectively
