Long recognized as a leader in environmental education with its graduate program in Environmental Engineering, the College of Engineering and Applied Science is pleased to announce the Environmental Engineering Program (ENVE) now includes an undergraduate bachelor’s degree. Applications are currently being accepted for the fall quarter, 2012.
BS-ENVE provides undergraduate students with the background necessary to bridge the gap between understanding challenging societal problems in the air, water, land, and subsurface environments, and then solving these problems in a sustainable manner. The curriculum is based on a sound understanding of the sciences and mathematics, strengthened with engineering fundamentals and work experience through the college’s renowned co-op program.
In their freshman year, students begin with the traditional English and math classes. However, they are able to delve into their major classes in their first year by taking environmental engineering, chemistry and biology classes.
Their next four years are filled with many more environmental engineering classes and others including fluid mechanics, civil engineering, measurement labs and professional development courses.
In their senior year, students participate in a capstone-design experience that fosters interaction and communication between different engineering disciplines while applying environmental engineering principles to a field problem.
