Program Description

Environmental engineering is a diverse field of Civil Engineering that covers both traditional water/waste-water treatment and emerging issues of public health. Much of the world still suffers from a lack of sanitation and clean water and environmental engineers are trained to solve these and many other problems. Environment engineers apply the principles of science and mathematics to protect public health and minimize human impacts on the environment.

Challenges in energy, water resources, solid/hazardous waste, air quality, globalization, climate change, and environmental degradation must be addressed in a comprehensive effort to promote a sustainable and resilient society. Graduates of Kennesaw State University (KSU) Environmental Engineering program are prepared for careers devoted to finding solutions to these and other problems. The KSU Environmental Engineering program provides a comprehensive education with special emphasis on the demands of water pollution, air pollution, water and waste-water treatment, solid and hazardous waste management and treatment, and other emerging environmental issues, including sustainable air, water, and land resources, human health, and environmental restoration. The program prepares students for entry-level environmental engineering jobs in these fields, for admission to graduate programs, and for professional licensure anywhere in the USA and around the world.

Graduates are qualified to work for consultants, federal, state, and local governments. There are professional opportunities as an environmental design engineer, permitting engineer, compliance engineer, environmental specialist, water and waste-water engineer, environmental scientist, and more. The curriculum is tailored to develop professionals who are able to move between the technical and managerial aspects of environmental engineering projects and to serve in key leadership positions within the engineering profession.
