Gain the skills you need to become an environmental engineer. Design structures, hydraulics, soil mechanics and traffic systems.

Use the fundamentals of engineering and natural science to solve real, large-scale problems. Learn how “public works” are constructed, and study the complex systems behind transportation and structures as well as geotechnical, environmental and water resources.

Some of the areas in which our alumni are working:

  • Governmental agencies or consulting firms solving real problems
  • Laboratories and in the field, understanding how a system works and verifying conditions necessary for construction
  • Designing large-scale projects that benefit society
  • Managing an engineering design team or task

Freshman & Sophomore Year

Your first two years include introductory engineering, physics, chemistry, math and humanities courses. The engineering courses will introduce you to the different concentrations and, along with your other classes, you will build the foundation for the advanced courses. Many of the courses in the first two years include lab work and explore engineering principles. We don't just stand on theory, however. We make use of service-learning projects—you dive into real-world problems for real people right away.

Junior & Senior Year

After you've picked civil engineering, and you'll build some advanced engineering expertise. You will take civil engineering classes that cover topics in water resources, structures, environmental engineering, soils and transportation. Dedicated design courses are available in hydraulics, structures and environmental engineering. In addition to this, you will continue with your liberal arts core.

Senior Project

Your senior year will include a capstone design course in which you work with a team of students to complete a design project, effectively integrating much of your college education.

Summer Internships

We work to place students in a variety of internships at local and international companies to gain practical work experience.
