A Bachelor of Science in engineering with a program in environmental studies is offered by the department for students who wish to pursue professional careers in environmental science, management, law, or medicine. The broad-based curriculum allows selection of course work in biology, chemistry, and environmental health to complement the foundation in engineering science and mathematics. The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers a B.S.E. program in environmental health. This course of study is particularly appropriate for students wishing to pursue a professional career involved in public health, the health sciences, and such activities as risk assessment and regulatory affairs. Historically, programs in environmental health were established to promote research on the control of infectious disease, the purification of water supplies, and the sanitary disposal of human waste. Today, focal points of concern have been broadened to such challenging issues as non-point source environmental pollution, the influence of the built environment on the health of populations, epidemiological aspects of chronic illnesses, occupational health, risk assessment and risk management. The specific requirements for the B.S.E. degree in Environmental Health are developed on an individual basis with your advisor but are based on the general 38 course distribution for engineers as specified in the bulletin of Tufts University.
