First Year Undergraduate Curriculum

The freshman year curriculum is identical for most engineering undergraduate degree programs. Undergraduate students are admitted to the College of Engineering with a preference for the major noted on their admissions application and follow the same first-year engineering curriculum. The entry-to-a-major (ETAM) process is designed for students to take ownership of their future to identify at least three majors that are a good match for their career goals and academic performance.

Environmental Engineering Undergraduate Curriculum

The environmental engineering undergraduate program within the department is specifically designed to educate students to solve environmental challenges facing public and environmental health, such as water treatment, waste management and climate change. The program is appropriate for those who wish to protect human health and welfare while minimizing the adverse effects of human activity on the environment. 

Our environmental engineering curriculum is unique in that it:

  • Has a specific focus on the protection of public and environmental health by solving environmental challenges
  • Showcases a broad range of coursework to pursue your specific environmental interests in natural or engineered systems
  • Is multidisciplinary in every approach, melding earth science, life science, chemistry, social science and engineering
  • Provides the tools for you to develop solutions to solve emerging and existing issues such as water treatment, climate change and other environmental challenges
