Environmental Engineering Undergraduate Program
Environmental Engineering uses a combination of chemistry, biology, and engineering to create new ways of protecting people and planet. Environmental engineers find solutions to improve land, air, and water to ensure the sustainability of the Earth's natural resources for future generations. They develop new ways to improve the natural and built environment, protect public health, and improve quality of life. Systems designed to minimize waste; treat air pollutants, contaminated soil, groundwater, drinking water and wastewater; and mitigate the effects of climate change are all developed by environmental engineers.
