BSENVE Upper-Division Coursework

The BSENVE junior year curriculum (300-level courses) begins in autumn quarter and is designed to be taken in sequence each quarter.

The curriculum emphasizes the use of core knowledge from math, physics, biology, chemistry and engineering to mitigate impacts on environmental quality and to establish student understanding of the interconnections between air, water and soil during environmental engineering decision-making.
