Minor in Environmental Engineering

The minor in Environmental Engineering is designed to provide students in engineering, science, and other majors with a comprehensive study of environmental issues and the skills necessary to solve problems associated with environmental pollution. Today, environmental concerns strongly influence many aspects of engineering practice, and the mission of our program is to equip you with the knowledge necessary to tackle those challenges. 

The curriculum is designed to provide students with:

  • A foundation to pursue a career in environmental engineering 
  • An understanding of the environmental consequences of their designs
