Environmental Engineering

Environmental engineers develop solutions to environmental problems using the principles of biology, physics, and chemistry.  They are involved in water and air pollution control, recycling, waste disposal, and public health issues.  Environmental engineers conduct hazardous-waste management studies, advise on waste treatment and containment, and develop regulations for environmental protection.  They design municipal water supply and industrial wastewater treatment systems.  They conduct research on the environmental impact of proposed construction projects, analyze scientific data, and perform quality-control checks.  Environmental engineers are concerned with local and worldwide environmental issues.  They are increasingly involved in the protection of wildlife.  Many environmental engineers work as consultants, helping their clients to comply with regulations and to clean up hazardous sites. 

All undergraduate students within the College of Engineering are required to complete a first-year common core. Students that secure admission to a specific upper-year discipline must follow the program of study that was in place at the time of their admission to an upper-year academic discipline, recognizing that course and program changes may result in modification to the original program of study. It is recommended that students contact the Engineering Student Centre to confirm their program of study on a regular basis.
