Alternative energy sources, population growth, air pollution, urban sprawl and the depletion of natural resources are among the challenges being addressed by undergraduates in EHE’s Environmental Engineering (BSE) program.
Combined Bachelor/Master's Degree Program
The Department Environmental Health and Engineering offers a five-year Bachelor of Science in Engineering/Master of Science in Engineering (BSE/MSE) program.
Environmental engineers play particularly pivotal roles as professionals who bridge the gap between understanding complex scientific concepts and helping to formulate public policies that affect the environment.
Engineers will be increasingly called upon to help devise solutions to the tremendous problems of poverty, inequality, and social and environmental dislocation that afflict major parts of the globe in the 21st century.
The Environmental Sciences minor has been developed to encourage and facilitate studies in environmental sciences by students completing degrees in other science and engineering disciplines.
