If you’re dedicated to protecting the environment, reducing waste, and minimizing pollution, you should explore environmental engineering with the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and help develop solutions to environmental challenges. As an environmental engineer, you’ll use the principles of engineering, soil science, biology, and chemistry to help reduce waste and pollution, and help improve environmental conditions through remediation.

Our environmental engineering program, accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, allows you to hone your analytical skills and ability to clearly explain design ideas and plans. You’ll experience hands-on education with computer modeling, state-of-the-art laboratory work, field work, and site visits.

You’ll graduate with the tools to start a meaningful career with a private consulting firm or with the local, state, or federal government. Additionally, a degree in environmental engineering provides the starting point in the pathway to earning a Professional Engineer designation.
