Environmental Engineering involves designing environmental protection or remediation strategies for multiple resources-water, air, and soil, often with combinations of physical chemical, and biological treatment methods in the context of a complex regulatory framework.
The goal of the Environmental Engineering curriculum is to prepare graduates with a strong basic science background, particularly in chemistry and biology, and to provide students with a broad exposure to several environmental engineering science disciplines. Courses relating to transport processes, water quality control, air quality control, and process design are included in the core.
Career opportunities in environmental engineering are diverse. Graduates generally find career related to pollution and control and remediation of air, water, and soil environments.
