BSENVE Degree Requirements
The Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering (BSENVE) program focues specifically on two of the department's six areas of engineering emphasis (environmental and water engineering), specifically concerning engineered and natural systems and processes, and hydrology and hydrodynamics. The BSENVE degree is appropriate for students who have strong science background and wish to pursue envrionmental engineering in greater depth.
Students must complete a minimum of 180 credits to graduate, comprised of program prerequisites, general education courses and upper-division coursework. Study abroad programs that focus on civil and environmental engineering can also count toward degree requirements.
Students complete roughly 90 credits of general education courses, depending on course options selected. Students will typically complete the major of these classes in the freshmen and sophomore years.
Beginning junior year, students complete upper-division major coursework. In the junior year, students typically complete the seven required 300-level CEE courses in a pre-arranged sequence, along with courses required for graduation. In the senior year, students explore areas of their interest while taking courses to meet Technical Elective and Upper-Division Engineering & Science Elective requirements. Seniors also complete a capstone design course in their senior year.
