Environmental Engineering


Housed in the Deparment of Chemical and Environmental Engineering the mission of the Environmental Engineering (ENVE) program is to provide environmental engineering students with the background necessary to bridge the gap between understanding challenging societal problems in the air, water, land, and subsurface environments, and preventing and solving them in a sustainable manner.  

Program Educational Objectives

Graduates of the Environmental Engineering Program at the University of Cincinnati will:

  1. Have successful careers in industry, public and private organizations, entrepreneurial endeavors, and/or academia.
  2. Continue to develop, acquire, and apply new knowledge and skills required to identify, communicate, and effectively solve existing and emerging environmental issues in an ethical and sustainable manner.
  3. Engage in professional service to the benefit of current and future generations of humans and the health of the Earth’s ecosystems and resources.

Student Learning Outcomes

By the time students’ graduate from the program, they should be able to demonstrate:

a. an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering

b. an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data

c. an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability

d. an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams

e. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems

f. an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility

g. an ability to communicate effectively

h. the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context

i. a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning

j. a knowledge of contemporary issues

k. an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
