The BSE Degree in Environmental Engineering

The BSE EnvE program is dedicated to producing tomorrow’s leaders – those who will help society meet the challenges of global resource limitations and human environmental impacts.

With a BSE EnvE, students are prepared for a career position in engineering consulting, government agencies, humanitarian organizations and much more. Environmental engineering is predicted to have one of the highest growth rates among all engineering disciplines in a few years.

“Environmental engineering, in addition to being a rapidly developing field, also delivers the perfect balance of a technical degree with practical applications,” Environmental Engineering Student Hema Karunakaram says. 

This fairly new program gives students an opportunity to focus on sustainable infrastructure systems - such as water, sanitation and air quality- that protect human health and natural resources for current and coming generations.

“I’d always known I wanted to study something related to the environment and sustainability, and work in a field where I could have positive and tangible impacts on the ecological and human systems around me,” Environmental Engineering Student Diana Bach says.

The main focus areas are: water quality and health, earth systems, environmental fluid dynamics and environmental policy and sustainable infrastructure.
