Environmental Engineering

As an Environmental Engineering student at Catholic University, you will be exposed to a wide range of fundamental science and engineering courses including math, physics, chemistry, biology, classical mechanics, hydraulics and hydrology. Additionally, you will take courses designed to prepare you to tackle present-day environmental problems using modern technology.

The Program

Environmental engineers are responsible for managing the impacts that humans have on the natural and built environment. They design systems that purify and distribute water; collect, manage and treat wastewater; protect natural ecological environments; control air pollution; clean contaminated sites; provide clean energy; and create sustainable world for future generations.

Environmental engineering is truly a multi-disciplinary area of engineering that combines physics, chemistry, biology, ecology, geology, geography, mathematics and public policy.
