The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers an undergraduate option in environmental engineering. Students taking the environmental engineering option will earn an ABET-accredited BS degree in civil engineering. The transcript and graduate certificate will indicate the environmental engineering option. Students pursuing the environmental engineering option take the same core courses in mathematics, natural sciences, engineering, communications, and liberal studies as do the other civil engineering students. The applied engineering requirements within the environmental engineering curriculum differ from those of CEE in that students are required to complete 9 credits with an emphasis in water resources, environmental fluid mechanics, environmental chemistry and biotechnology, water and wastewater treatment, geoenvironmental and hazardous wastes engineering, air pollution control engineering, or occupational health engineering.
