The environmental resources engineering concentration emphasizes:

  • assessment of the environmental impact of new or existing products or processes
  • methods for solving problems resulting from pollution
  • management of energy and resources in order to minimize pollution

Your program of study will provide in-depth knowledge of environmental engineering and an awareness of potential social, economic, political, and environmental impacts of environmental engineering practices.

You will be prepared to:

  • analyze and design environmental resources engineering systems
  • apply multidisciplinary approaches to manage the competing social, political, economic, and technical goals of environmental problems and solutions
  • work in multidisciplinary teams to solve environmental resources engineering problems
