Environmental Engineering Minor

In the past, the environmental impacts of an engineering project or design were considered as an afterthought. Today, environmental concerns strongly influence almost all aspects of engineering practice. The curriculum is designed to provide students with a foundation to pursue a career in environmental engineering and an understanding of the environmental consequences of their designs.

Please contact Dr. William Barry in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering if you are interested in this program.
