Environmental Engineering Undergraduate Program
Environmental Engineering combines the principles of engineering, chemistry, and biology to provide safe water, sanitation, and clean air. With an increasing demand for safer environments, the need for highly trained environmental engineers is growing. Environmental engineers design systems that protect people and planet from the mismanagement of toxic and hazardous waste. They develop solutions to rehabilitate impacted terrestrial and aquatic environments. From wastewater treatment systems to air quality management technologies, environmental engineers are creating a cleaner and safer tomorrow.
