Environmental engineers advance the science and technology of air quality, water quality, water resources, housing, and other built environments, greenspace development, and the protection of plants, animals, and their habitats. The program prepares you to address some of the greatest collective challenges of our time.
Environmental engineering graduates may acquire positions in industry, consultancy, utilities, regulatory agencies, nonprofits, governmental agencies and nongovernmental organizations. You will work alongside sustainability coordinators, civil and mechanical engineers, architects, developers, and construction managers.
Foundational courses in the humanities and social sciences help to give you a broad view of the interaction of humans with the environment, and to measure the short and long-term social, environmental and economic aspects and impacts into sustainable engineering solutions. Hands-on laboratories and/or project-based learning are incorporated into each year of the Environmental Engineering curriculum.
