In this program students must maintain a GPA of 3.00 to take Honors courses and remain in the Honors Program. All Honors Program students will be reviewed yearly. Any Honors students falling below a 3.00 GPA at the end of any year of study will be contacted and removed from the Honors Program. They are also required to complete the requirements for the Bachelor of Science degree. Environmental engineering is a relatively young branch of the engineering profession. It has developed in response to the serious problems of environmental contamination caused by the waste products and activities of our modern society. Environmental engineers work in many different specialties-air pollution control, hazardous waste management, industrial hygiene, solid waste management, wastewater collection and treatment, and water resource development. The environmental engineering program is based on a strong foundation of scientific and engineering principles which prepare the student for fundamentally sound applications in the subsequent design oriented upper-level courses. The environmental engineering faculty, highly regarded in their profession as researchers and practitioners, bring their expertise into the classroom, thus assuring a state-of-the-art education. This includes, for example, quantitative aspects of environmental chemistry that will determine the regulatory approach to heavy metals in wastewaters, advanced oxidation processes for the remediation of contaminated groundwater, and automation of control systems for the purification of drinking water.
