Environmental engineering students will graduate with a robust foundation in engineering, chemical, biological, and ecological principles. Specifically, they will possess a solid understanding of how these principles relate to organic material and pollutants within soil, air and water media; and the complex interactions between them and our built and natural environments.
This knowledge will provide students with the core skills necessary to practice environmental engineering and work with other engineers and urban and regional planners in an interdisciplinary environment. Graduates will play a key role in planning, designing and monitoring public and private facilities to minimize the impact of anthropogenic activities on the environment, ensuring regulatory compliance while mitigating the impact of contaminated soil, groundwater and surface water on human health.
