The educational objectives of the environmental engineering program are to produce graduates who: - can apply technical knowledge and problem-solving skills to advance their careers and serve the community; - are prepared for engineering practice and advanced studies in environmental engineering; - will engage in life-long learning to keep themselves abreast of new developments in their fields of practice or study; and - are capable of effective written and oral communications. The B.S. degree program in environmental engineering emphasizes the application of engineering and science principles to the preservation and management of the environment. It provides a strong background in the basic and engineering sciences and a variety of courses in several environmental areas, including water and wastewater treatment, solid and hazardous waste management, air pollution control, transport and fate of pollutants, and environmental chemistry and microbiology. The program allows students to pursue a series of elective courses suited to individual interests and goals, as well as to obtain minors in a variety of subject areas. Double-majors with geography, economics, political science and policy studies are possible without any additional coursework. This program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. Student Outcomes: - an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering - an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data - an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints - an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams - an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems - an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility - an ability to communicate effectively
