Environmental Engineering, Bachelor of Science Degree

What will I learn in an environmental engineering degree program?

Successful engineering students arrive at the University with a strong background in math and science. We recommend students have taken physics and chemistry courses in high school and are prepared to take calculus as freshmen.

Our program teaches students to apply basic science and engineering principles to solve environmental problems. The curriculum prepares students for the responsible and sustainable management of natural resources.

Graduates of the bachelor's degree in environmental engineering should be able to:

  • Apply their engineering knowledge and problem-solving skills in a professional environment
  • Understand and design environmental engineering systems
  • Work in multidisciplinary teams
  • Continue their education through graduate studies or ongoing professional development hours
  • Contribute to society at large through an understanding of and ability to communicate technical, social, environmental and ethical issues
  • Be aware of contemporary issues and engage in life-long learning
