, GA,
The goal of the Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) environmental specialization is to produce graduates who are well prepared for employment in professional practice or for graduate study. Ecological systems consist of complex, interactive physical, chemical, and biological cycles and processes.

About

Environmental engineers use their knowledge of these natural treatment systems to design engineered systems that mitigate society’s impact on the environment.

Environmental specialization students study in the basic sciences (chemistry, physics, and biology), mathematics, and traditional engineering to enable them to apply engineering analysis and design to complicated, multi-phase environmental problems. They study basic and advanced environmental engineering topics including air pollution control, air chemistry, bioremediation, surface hydrology, engineering hydraulics, groundwater hydrology, public health, wastewater treatment, and water treatment.

Hands-on experience is accomplished through the Introduction to Environmental Engineering Laboratory, Senior Environmental Engineering Laboratory, design projects in junior and senior EVE courses, plus a two-semester senior design experience that involves the identification, design, analysis, and testing of some environmental process or prototype. 

EVE students have several avenues to deepen and broaden their environmental engineering education by applying for undergraduate research opportunities (REUs), conducting literature searches, working with environmental specialization professors on research projects, and engaging in summer internships.

English Language Requirements

  • Minimum required score:

    6.5

    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

Academic Requirements

You need the following GPA score:

Required score: 3

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 3 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

General Requirements

  • Application for Admission, either Mercer's application or the Common Application, with U.S. $50.00 nonrefundable application fee
  • Official secondary school and/or official university transcript(s), translated in English
  • A letter of recommendation from an academic or personal reference, translated in English
  • Course-by-course evaluation of transcripts, including grade point average (GPA), completed and forwarded to Mercer. We will accept evaluations from World Education Services (WES) or Josef Silny & Associates.
  • For students whose native language or language of instruction in secondary high school is English, an official SAT or ACT score is required.
