Environmental engineers work to minimize the impact of engineering and technology on the natural world. Their interests include water purification, pollution control, public health, recycling, waste disposal, and sustainable design and manufacturing. The School of Engineering introduced a new concentration in environmental engineering in 2013, in response to both the growing importance of the field and student interest. The curriculum is based on the “standard” engineering core curriculum, but also includes key pre-requisites in biology and environmental science and geological sciences. The concentration currently defines two options. The first focuses on energy and power, while the second focuses on chemical and biological technology. The Environmental Engineering Sc.B. is not accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (and at present there are no plans to seek ABET accreditation for this program. An accredited engineering degree is not necessary for a successful career in environmental sciences: many enter the field with degrees in biology, chemistry, physics, environmental sciences, in addition to engineering. Nevertheless, some environmental engineering occupations (such as government positions concerned with environmental regulation) require professional registration, which is most easily achieved through an accredited engineering degree. At Brown, the Sc.B. degree in Chemical and Biochemical Engineering is the best starting point for these careers. The concentration has the following general structure: The Interdisciplinary core for the Engineering Sc.B, taken during the first two years Additional courses in biology, environmental sciences, and geological sciences Upper level science and engineering courses Four approved humanities courses
