Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering Technology

The environmental engineering technology program prepares graduates for responsible operations, maintenance, and management positions in a wide variety of industrial, municipal, recreational, and regulatory corporations or agencies. Those graduates who also earn licensure in a specific division of environmental engineering technologies are better prepared for management/supervisory positions in their environmental specialties.

Graduates of our program have the advantage of understanding the biological, chemical, and physical aspects of environmental engineering, along with the mechanical, electrical, and computer equipment required for waste processing. The bachelor of science in environmental engineering technology helps the student develop a concern for the environment, the very life-stream of our existence. This concern, coupled with excellent communication skills, gives the graduate the edge needed to meet the environmental challenges of the 21st century and beyond.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, environmental engineering technologists are employed in almost every industry. Employment is expected to grow faster than average for the next decade and beyond.
