Environmental Engineering is an interdisciplinary program that integrates the natural sciences and engineering to focus on identification and solution of problems at the interface between the Earth and human society. Includes instruction in the sciences (biology, chemistry, geology, physics), mathematics (calculus, differential equations, statistics) and engineering. Concepts and principles from surface and ground water hydrology, water resources management, environmental process and systems analysis, and physical, chemical and biological process design.

Program Learning Outcomes
Problem Solving: Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
Engineering Design: Apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
Communication: Communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
Professionalism: Recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
Teaming: Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
Experimentation: Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
Self Education: Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
