The environmental engineering program at UW-Platteville is designed to give students a broad background in environmental engineering as well as civil engineering basics such as surveying, fluid mechanics and geotechnical engineering. Practical applications are emphasized with sufficient theory so that the individual can grow with the future as new materials, methods, and designs develop. Environmental engineering was historically an area of "emphasis", or a sub-discipline of civil engineering, a traditionally strong program at UW-Platteville. The environmental emphasis in civil engineering remains, but a new program offering a degree in Environmental Engineering was recently developed to provide students a more in-depth program of study in the field. While many graduate programs exist, Environmental Engineering at UW-Platteville is the only undergraduate program in the state of Wisconsin, and one of only a few available in the Midwest.
