Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering
Program Director: Associate Professor 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 BS in Environmental Engineering (BSEVE) program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, https://www.abet.org, under the General Criteria and Program Criteria for Environmental Engineering and Similarly Named Engineering Programs. The BSEVE program meets or exceeds the General Criteria requirements of a minimum of 30 credits in a combination of college-level mathematics and basic sciences, and a minimum of 45 credits of engineering topics.
