Bachelor of Engineering [B.Eng.]

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

School of Engineering, College of Physical and Engineering Science

The degradation of the environment is a concern shared by citizens, government agencies, non governmental agencies and businesses. The Environmental Engineering program offered by the School of Engineering provides graduates with design and engineering skills to minimize and prevent the impact of human activities on water, soil and air systems. Both simple and innovative solutions are part of the tool box. Graduates will also creatively integrate humanistic and social perspectives in their solutions.
