The Environmental Engineering program aspires to equip engineering graduates with technical know-how and sound ethics to design and implement contemporary environmental projects that best serve the community and to provide them with the leverage to compete internationally with their peers in the academic and professional arenas.
The educational objective of the Environmental Engineering Bachelor Degree are:
- Produce graduates who pursue careers in Environmental Engineering based on a background in mathematics, physical and life sciences, liberal studies and engineering.
- Produce graduates who pursue continual learning and advanced degrees or higher educational opportunities through coursework, research, professional conferences and training.
- Produce graduates who can be engaged in activities that provide benefits to communities and contribute to solutions of societal problems involving environmental systems.
The student outcomes reflect the skills and abilities that the curriculum is designed to provide to students by the time they graduate. These are:
a) An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering;
b) An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data;
c) An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability;
d) An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams;
e) An ability to identify, formulate, and solve environmental engineering problems;
f) An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility;
g) An ability to communicate effectively;
h) The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context;
i) A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning;
j) A knowledge of contemporary issues;
k) An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for environmental engineering practice.
