A primary focus of the undergraduate environmental engineering program is to prepare graduates for professional practice. Thus, Cal Poly's "learn by doing" philosophy is emphasized and design is integrated throughout the curriculum. Environmental engineering students are provided with many opportunities to work in well-equipped, state-of-the-art laboratories. Also, these students are required to take a two-quarter senior design capstone course. In this course, students demonstrate their understanding of essential engineering skills as well as their ability to solve practical, real-world design problems.
