Environmental and Resource Management
The concentration in environmental and resource management provides students with a thorough introduction to environmental regulations and key environmental management issues such as the provision of clean, potable water, wastewater treatment, solid and hazardous waste management, as well as remediation technologies for polluted soils, groundwater and air. Students learn to apply basic science and engineering principles to solving problems that significantly impact human health and ecosystems. The courses form a coherent whole and demonstrate the connection between science, engineering, public policy and the law.
- Students must complete a minimum of 15 credit hours including 12 of upper division hours for this concentration.
- All courses must be completed with a grade of “C” (2.00) or higher.
