B.S. in Environmental Engineering:
The environmental engineering field and environmental engineering education are multi-disciplinary. The B.S. degree provides a solid foundation in the fundamentals of mathematics, physics, chemistry and engineering design that are needed to practice the profession or to pursue a graduate degree. Environmental engineering education also includes a range of other disciplines, such as biology, ecology, geology, public health, economics, computer science, and process engineering principles. To be able to address the spectrum of issues facing the environment, environmental engineers are broadly educated, as well as technically trained.
All students in environmental engineering pursue a common program of basic sciences, engineering and environmental engineering fundamentals and design. The program allows 6 units of “Professional Electives” which can be selected from available courses in environmental chemistry, environmental biology, water resources, and other areas. The students’ choice of elective courses must be made in consultation with the advisor and documented by the filing of an approved master plan during the first semester of their junior year.
Upper Division Writing Requirement. Passing the University Writing Examination or completing one of the approved writing courses with a grade of C (2.0) or better.
