About Us

The Environmental Engineering program at Tarleton State University is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET ( This program is relatively unique in the State of Texas in preparing students to work as environmental engineers at the baccalaureate level. Students are prepared for employment as an engineer, for engineering licensure, as well as for graduate studies. Environmental engineers apply their study in math, engineering, physics, chemistry, biology, and environmental engineering to design the components, processes, and systems to meet specifications while they minimize the adverse effects of human activities on the environment. The graduate also gains the ability to work and communicate effectively in team-oriented, project-management-driven-environments. Computer simulation and modern analytical tools are used to solve problems within the fields of water supply and resources, environmental systems modeling, environmental chemistry, wastewater management, atmospheric systems, and air pollution control.

If you are considering Environmental Engineering at TSU, we encourage you to take a closer look and visit us. Students and their education are a top priority with our faculty.  Faculty members extensively collaborate with Texas AgriLife Research and Extension Center as well as with the Texas Institute of Applied Environmental Research to provide our graduate research experience. Please explore this site and feel free to contact us with any questions or to make arrangements for a campus visit.
