Why study Environmental Engineering?

The Environmental Engineering minor is intended to give engineering students a focused introduction in either water quality or air quality areas of Environmental Engineering. It is designed for students who wish to augment their major engineering program with courses addressing important environmental problems facing modern society in developed and developing countries. The minor provides students with a greater depth of experience and understanding of the roles environmental engineers can play in dealing with environmental issues.
