Environmental Engineering Minor

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. The curriculum is designed to provide students with

  1. a foundation to pursue a career in environmental engineering and
  2. an understanding of the environmental consequences of their designs.
    1. Apply mathematics, science and engineering principles in environmental engineering discipline;
    2. Design and conduct experiments, analyze and interpret data in environmental engineering field;
    3. Design a system, component or process to meet desired needs in environmental engineering;
    4. Identify, formulate and solve environmental engineering problems;
    5. Use the techniques, skills and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
