Minor in Environmental Engineering

About the Minor

The Environmental Engineering minor focuses on pollution control and is primarily designed to broaden the professional capabilities of engineering students. For example, chemical and mechanical engineers working in process and manufacturing plants will be provided with a better understanding of the natural context of their facilities, better equipped to perform fate and risk analyses, and better able to apply the appropriate technology to control air and water discharges.

While this minor is designed to provide technical knowledge and skills to other engineers, with the appropriate prerequisites students from disciplines other than engineering can also complete this minor.

The minor consists of five required core courses and three additional courses taken from a list of options.


The common engineering core curriculum prerequisites are required of all students in the College of Engineering. Students from other colleges will need the appropriate background in physics, mathematics, and thermodynamics.
