Program Description

Beginning in fall 2020, Bioenvironmental Engineering 116 (4-year) and Bioenvironmental 117 (5-year) will be replaced by Environmental Engineering 366, a joint SEBS and SoE program.

Bioenvironmental engineering utilizes engineering principles and the physical, chemical, and biological sciences to prevent and solve environmental problems related to human activities. This program prepares students for immediate employment as practicing engineers with engineering consulting firms; drinking water, wastewater, solid waste, and air pollution treatment facilities; manufacturing industries; environmental regulatory and planning agencies; research laboratories; international development agencies, and public-interest groups. The curriculum is accredited as an environmental engineering program by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), thus enabling graduates to take examinations leading to a professional engineering license. The bioenvironmental engineering curriculum provides a strong foundation in engineering and physical, chemical, and biological sciences during the first two years. In the upper-level major courses of the program, these fundamentals are applied to multidisciplinary problem solving in various environmental fields.

Bachelor of science degrees from the School of Engineering and the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences are awarded upon completion of the five-year curriculum. A four-year program of study in bioenvironmental engineering is offered jointly by the School of Engineering and the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences starting in fall 2020.
