Environmental Engineering (Arizona State University)
The four-year BSE in civil engineering with a concentration in environmental engineering program at Arizona State University is designed to prepare students for a career in a variety of fields, including consulting, industry, municipal and regulatory engineering. The field of environmental engineering is interdisciplinary, incorporating principles from civil engineering, chemistry, biology and geology. Graduates may find employment involving air pollution technology, contaminant remediation, sustainability practices, water conservation and water quality management.
Coursework is focused on mathematics and science, including calculus, organic chemistry and physics. Students may also explore the application of physics theories, such as force distribution and kinematics, to structural systems. Other areas of focus include water studies (such as contamination, treatment and the design of water resource systems), soil geology, the use of statistical software and specific numerical methods for problem-solving and business practice (such as cost/benefit analysis, project financing and ethics).
A civil engineering degree with a concentration in environmental engineering is a multi-disciplinary program requiring 120 credit hours over a wide range of mathematical, scientific and technological fields.
ASU's academic programs are spread across campuses in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area; however, unlike most multi-campus institutions, the campuses of ASU are all individually different- each has its own distinct function to fulfill in line with the university's mission.Read more About this school
