Environmental engineers design and apply technologies to resolve issues of environmental concern. They design systems that produce safe drinking water, treat wastewater so that it can be reused and/or safely returned to the environment, accommodate municipal and hazardous waste, mitigate air pollution, and protect public health.

What will I study?
Our program provides you with a strong foundation in chemistry, biology, environmental engineering, fluid mechanics, hydrology, and the design of drinking water and municipal wastewater treatment systems. There are a number of required design courses, but you may still tailor your learning to fit your interests.
