B.S. in Environmental Engineering

The Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering degree provide a one-of-a-kind program that prepares students for work in the Environmental Engineering industry. Students who graduate with this degree will be well equipped with the knowledge and skills needed for work as an Engineer, for engineering licensure, as well as for graduate studies. Environmental Engineers apply their knowledge and studies in the following areas:

  • Environmental Restoration & Remediation
  • Water/Wastewater Treatment
  • Hydrology & Hydraulics
  • Natural Resource Management

These areas are used in Environmental Engineering to design the pieces, processes, and systems to meet industry guidelines, which will reduce the negative effects of human activities on the environment. Graduates of this program will also gain the ability to work and communicate effectively in team-oriented, project-management driven environments.
