Environmental Engineering

Bachelor of Science in Engineering

Course descriptions

Environmental Engineering majors are required to complete the following:

The Earth Science requirement may be fulfilled by ERTH 1051 or 3710/ENVE 3530; MARN 1002; NRE 3145, 3146 or 4135; SPSS 2120, 3420 or 4420; or other appropriate courses by petition.

The Biological Science requirement may be fulfilled by BIOL 1108; EEB 2100E; ENVE 3270; NRE 3105, 3265, 4205, or 4340; or other appropriate courses by petition.

Professional Requirements include: at least three credits in the area of Management and Policy from the following list of courses: AH 3275; ARE 3434E, 4462E; EEB 3205E; ENVE 3100, 4850; GEOG 3320W, 3340; LAND 3230WE; MEM 2221; NRE 3245E; OPIM 3603. At least three credits from any 3000-level or higher CE or ENVE courses. At least six credits from any 3000-level or higher courses in engineering or science (BIOL, CHEM, EEB, ERTH, GEOG, LAND, MARN, MATH, MCB, NRE, PHYS, SOIL, TURF), or CE 2500 or CHEM 2241, 2243.

No course that was used to meet another requirement for the Environmental Engineering Program may double count as a Professional Requirement. This includes university general education requirements and requirements for the School of Engineering. Environmental Engineering Honors students are required to take three credits of ENVE 4886 and/or 4897 in place of three credits of Professional Requirements.

The Environmental Engineering undergraduate program educational objectives are to impart our alumni/ae with the knowledge and skills needed to: actively contribute to the practice and profession of engineering, including management and administration, in the public, private or academic sectors in the technical area of environmental engineering; follow a path towards leadership in the profession that can include becoming licensed professional engineers, assessing the impact of human activities on the environment, designing and constructing solutions to minimize and mitigate such impacts, and tending to the natural environment as our life support system; and practice lifelong learning through post-graduate and professional education.

The Environmental Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.
