Environmental engineers design systems and solve pressing global problems in all areas related to the environment and public health: sustainable design of drinking water treatment and wastewater treatment, and solid hazardous waste disposal systems; development of air quality monitoring and pollution prevention programs; design of site remediation and mining reclamation programs; and development of ecosystem protection and restoration efforts, among others.  Students may study environmental engineering as an emphasis area in the B.S. civil engineering degree program , and/or pursue an environmental engineering minor.
