The goals of the BSEVE program are to develop a broad understanding of environmental engineering, its relationship to the physical, chemical, health, and earth sciences, and its interaction with the humanities, arts, and social sciences. The comprehensive view of environmental engineering comprising the program includes treatment; health, safety, and risk assessment; pollution prevention; modeling and simulation of environmental systems; and the design and operation of engineered works. All three environmental media are addressed: air, soil, and the traditional departmental strength in water. The curriculum emphasizes the application of mathematics, basic science, computing, engineering science, and multidisciplinary thinking in environmental engineering, and seeks to foster enterprise and leadership by developing skills in oral and written communication, project management, policy development economics, and planning. The program prepares students to pursue professional engineering careers in the public, private, and not-for-profit sectors. BSEVE Program Mission Statement The mission of the BSEVE degree program offered by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is to provide students with undergraduate educational experiences that give them a sound basis for professional practice in environmental engineering and for life-long learning. Our primary goal is for students to learn the fundamental principles of environmental engineering, to become proficient in the use of engineering methods to solve challenging problems, and to communicate these solutions to technical and non-technical communities. The faculty is dedicated to accomplishing this mission through the integration of teaching, research, and professional practice. BSEVE Program Educational Objectives The BSEVE program educational objectives are to provide our graduates with the disciplinary breadth in preparation for the following: To enter into professional environmental engineering practice as a competent engineer. To attend a top-tier graduate or professional school. To eventually assume a leadership role in environmental engineering or a related field. BSEVE Student Outcomes Each graduate of the BSEVE program should be able to demonstrate: Ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering. Ability to design and conduct experiments as well as to analyze and interpret data. Ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs. Ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams. Ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems. Understanding of professional and ethical responsibility. Ability to communicate effectively. Broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global/societal/economic context. Recognition of the need for and an ability to engage in lifelong learning. Knowledge of contemporary issues. Ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
