Environmental Engineering Program Regular and Co-op (ENVE/ENVE:C)

School of Engineering, College of Physical and Engineering Science

In recent years there has been concern about the degradation of the environment. The School of Engineering has responded to this concern by developing an Environmental Engineering program. Graduates will possess design and skills to minimize and prevent the impact of human activities on water, soil and air systems. Graduates will also creatively integrate humanistic and social perspectives in their solutions.
