Managing our limited natural resources and finding solutions to the planet's environmental challenges are the critical concerns of environmental engineers. Their work confronts an extensive array of local and global issues, from air pollution, access to clean water and remediation of contaminated sites to improving public health and mitigating ecological risks. At Lehigh, readiness for the real world starts with a rich undergraduate experience. The BSEE program delivers by bringing a multidisciplinary approach to the causes, control and prevention of actual environmental problems. Students receive rigorous training in the fundamentals of the natural sciences, mathematics, and scientific methods, coupled with complementary studies in the humanities and social sciences. In addition, the program offers four focus areas through which students can explore their interests in depth: Water supply and resources management; Environmental biotechnology; Environmental chemistry; Waste management and environmental remediation
