Environmental Engineering

Create a healthier world.

Environmental engineers apply their knowledge of chemistry, biology, math, and physics to protect the environment and human health. They are tasked with developing sustainable solutions for an expanding global community. Turn your passion for the environment into a career and play a critical role in making the world a better place.
