Undergraduate Program

BSEVE: Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering

Program Director: Prof. Andrew Ramsburg

The goals of the BSEVE program are to develop a broad understanding of environmental engineering, its relationship to the physical, chemical, health, and earth sciences, and its interaction with the humanities, arts, and social sciences. The comprehensive view of environmental engineering comprising the program includes treatment; health, safety, and risk assessment; pollution prevention; modeling and simulation of environmental systems; and the design and operation of engineered works. All three environmental media are addressed: air, soil, and the traditional departmental strength in water. The curriculum emphasizes the application of mathematics, basic science, computing, engineering science, and multidisciplinary thinking in environmental engineering, and seeks to foster enterprise and leadership by developing skills in oral and written communication, project management, policy development economics, and planning. The program prepares students to pursue professional engineering careers in the public, private, and not-for-profit sectors.

The BSEVE program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. ABET-EAC criteria require students complete a minimum number of course credits in college-level math and basic science subjects appropriate to the discipline, and a minimum number of course credits in engineering topics. To ensure compliance with these requirements, Tufts' School of Engineering establishes that all ABET-EAC accredited programs contain a minimum of 9.5 course credits in math and basic science subjects, and 14.5 course credits in engineering topics. The BSEVE program meets or exceeds these minimum standards
