Geography and Environmental Engineering: Environmental Engineering

A guide to the academic majors within the department identifying resources used in the study of human geography, environmental geography, GIS, environmental engineering, and environmental science

Welcome to Environmental Engineering

Environmental Engineering develop the concepts, methodologies, and processes that protect human health and the natural environment.  Historically environmental engineers have created systems and strategies to treat waste streams; produce safe drinking water; control storm water; manage solid waste, hazardous waste, and radioactive waste; clean up environmental contamination; and, control noise.  In the future, environmental engineers must also react to and mitigate changes in climate and resource availability and be a leader in implementing actions that enhance sustainability.  The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that environmental engineering will have “faster than average growth” over the next 10 years.
