Program Overview

Environmental engineers work at the interface of society and the environment, striving to protect both human and ecosystem health. Among the top priorities of the profession are the delivery of safe water to drink and clean air to breathe, and the restoration of water quality in the Great Lakes, the Hudson River and natural water systems throughout the nation. Today, environmental engineers face issues that are changing the world. With their unique combination of environmental science and engineering, environmental engineers are the linchpins in developing solutions to global climate change and alternative energy sources. From preventing waterborne diseases in the most remote village to protecting supplies at home, environmental engineers defend the global public health and ecosystem viability.

The educational objectives of the environmental engineering program are that within a few years after graduation, our graduates will:
-Satisfy the requirements of their employers for professional practice in environmental engineering
-Continue their professional development in environmental engineering, including professional licensure, continuing education, and/or graduate study
