Environmental engineers advance fundamental understanding of human impacts on the environment and the environment’s response to these impacts. They assess the environmental impact of proposed construction projects, analysis of scientific data, and quality-control checks. They design solutions to mitigate adverse human impacts on the environment. They are concerned with local and worldwide environmental issues, including protecting water quality, global warming, automobile emissions, and ozone depletion.
Within the MSU Environmental Engineering B.S. degree program, students may choose a general track of study, or can focus their studies in geo-environmental engineering, or water resources.
Environmental engineering graduates are prepared for careers focusing on environmental protection in industry pollution control and compliance, within government regulatory agencies and public policy organizations, designing environmental systems such as wastewater treatment, and as consultants.
