Environmental Engineering emphasizes the ability to formulate and solve complex practical and theoretical engineering problems, while at the same time understanding business objectives and appreciating the social, economic and ethical issues encountered in a modern global society. Students will think critically and creatively, work effectively on teams and communicate clearly in both technical and non-technical forums. Graduates will design components or systems; collect, analyze and interpret data from prescribed and self-designed experimental procedures; apply a broad-based educational experience to understand the interaction of engineering solutions with contemporary business, economic and social issues; and recognize that ethical behavior and continuous acquisition of knowledge are fundamental attributes of successful environmental engineering professionals.
