Why Study Environmental Engineering?

Environmental Engineering is the application of science and engineering principles to improving the environment (air, water, and/or land resources), to providing healthful water, air and land for human habitation and for other organisms, and to investigate the possibilities for remediation of polluted sites. Environmental engineering also involves design and application of technology, including development of new materials, in support of the principles of sustainability and green manufacturing. The coursework of the minor emphasizes the chemical mechanisms at work behind environmental processes that govern production and transport of pollutants, bioavailability and toxicity, changing ecological and geochemical factors, and design of remediation and pollution prevention methodologies. The minor also provides coursework on materials and technology development for sustainable development and manufacturing.

AREAS OF STUDY:
  • Sustainability
  • Green Manufacturing
  • Ecology
  • Pollution Prevention

SAMPLE COURSES:

  • Environmental Materials Engineering
  • Groundwater Hydrology
  • Marine Pollution
  • Environmental Toxicology

ADMISSION INFO:

The minor in Environmental Engineer­ing is composed of two required courses and four technical electives.

After Graduation

Your college decision isn't really about the next four years. We get it. It’s about what doors are opened by your degree and whether those opportunities are what you had envisioned for yourself. Nearly 95% of SBU grads go to professional or graduate school. Here's a snapshot of what life after graduation looks like for some of them.

CAREER OPTIONS:

  • Environmental Program Specialist
  • Environmental & Historic Preservationist
  • Environmental Engineer
  • Environmental Economist

RECENT EMPLOYERS:

  • City of Apache Junction, AZ
  • Vista Defense Technologies, LLC 
  • Naval Nuclear Laboratory
  • RTI International
