The Environmental Engineering Department is structured to provide the necessary background in Engineering and natural sciences (civil engineering, chemical engineering, mining engineering and engineering geology, geology, chemistry, physics, and biology) with the intent of preparing our undergraduates for the 21st century. It includes a general education component consistent with the college and university requirements for the B.S. degree. The logic that underlies the sequence of courses in each of these areas is described below.
The objective of the Environmental Engineering Department is to produce undergraduates who:
1- demonstrate the ability to apply engineering principles, computer skills, and natural sciences to environmental engineering practice
2- are capable of synthesizing principles and techniques from engineering, engineering planning and project management, and the natural and social sciences to develop and evaluate alternative design solutions to engineering problems with specific constraints
3- are prepared for entry into careers in environmental engineering that involve air quality systems evaluation and engineering, air pollution control technology, water quality systems evaluation and engineering, water and wastewater treatment, or site remediation
4- are prepared to pursue graduate education and research in environmental engineering at major research universities
5- exercise professional responsibility and sensitivity to a broad range of societal concerns, such as ethical, environmental, economic, regulatory, and global issues
6- make co-operation and collaboration relationships with Universities, research centers in the entire World, whom are interesting in environmental development.
7- helping to shape the future of the profession, and who are aiding the advancement of the environmental engineering industry by transferring new knowledge and technologies to engineering practice.
