Environmental Engineering, B.Sc.

  • Application Deadline
  • 48 months
    Duration
University rank #351 (WUR) , CA,
Environmental engineers are distinguished from other environmental professionals through their focus on problem solving, design and implementation of technological or management systems.

About

Environmental engineers search for creative and economical ways to use resources efficiently, limit the release of residuals into the environment, develop sensitive techniques to track pollutants once released and find effective methods to remediate spoiled resources. They serve as the vital link between scientific discovery, technological development and the societal need for protecting human health and ecological integrity.

In the coming decades, environmental engineers will increasingly be called upon to address broader issues of environmental sustainability by minimizing the release of residuals through altered production processes and choice of materials; by capturing the resource value of wastes through recovery, recycling and reuse; and by managing natural resources to meet competing societal objectives.
