Environmental Engineering

We use fundamental science to protect the health of the environment and its inhabitants.

Environmental engineers play pivotal roles in bridging the gap between understanding complex scientific concepts and translating them into public policies that affect the environment. Our data-driven approaches to research, cross-disciplinary problem solving, and access to resources and expertise from different departments help prepare you for a career in industry, government, and graduate education. 


Engineering Microeconomics

This course introduces the principles of microeconomics and engineering economics and how they apply to environmental engineering, public policy analysis, and engineering decision making.

Environmental Health and Engineering Systems Design

You’ll learn techniques from systems analysis applied to environmental engineering design and management problems: reservoir management, power plant siting, nuclear waste management, air pollution control, and transportation planning.

Noise and Other Physical Agents in the Environment

This course addresses noise-related topics, such as physics of noise propagation and control, noise measurement, hearing physiology, and noise-induced hearing loss.
