Environmental engineers develop methods for clean manufacturing, wastewater treatment and water purification, alternative energy, and sustainable building. Students earning their Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering at the University of Arizona work under the umbrella of the Chemical and Environmental Engineering Department, gaining in-depth knowledge of process engineering for transforming waste into useful products and cleaning up contaminants in soil and groundwater. Arizona is one of only a handful of institutions nationwide to offer this setup. Through classroom study, plus research and real-world design projects, students learn about toxicity and pollutants and how to address issues across a range of industries that potentially affect the environment and public health.Environmental Engineering program is offered at University of Arizona.
