Opportunities for Environmental Engineering Students

  • Students wearing hard hats taking notes while working in the field

    As an environmental engineering major, your college experience extends far beyond classroom walls.

  • The Culminating Project

    Your culminating engineering project is the capstone of your degree. Consulting with the program's Environmental Engineering Advisory Board, you’ll be assigned a unique, real-world environmental engineering problem to solve.

    Working closely with your professors, you'll meet your clients, define the problem, and design a solution. Your final presentation of your project will be open to the public. You'll get real-world feedback while you build your network of industry contacts.

    Sustainability Studies Minor

    Environmental engineering majors can expand their understanding of environmental issues by adding on our Sustainability Studies Minor. This interdisciplinary program focuses on the health and integrity of human societies and the natural world.

    Take this minor, and you’ll investigate issues, problems, and possible solutions in many areas including human institutions, ethics, and cultures as well as technologies and natural sciences.
