Environmental Engineering and Health Science, BSEnvE

This intercollege combined major is designed for students who would like to explore their interest in the health sciences while earning the benefit of a Bachelor of Science degree in environmental engineering. The combined major reflects the respective departmental thrusts in environmental health and sustainable resource engineering to create awareness about the complex relationship between the environment and human health, prepare professionals in this growing area capable of providing engineering solutions to current and emerging topics related to environmental engineering and health sciences, and maintain healthy environmental systems by applying and developing techniques to reduce exposure to health hazards. This program combines the content of two majors to allow students to learn the breadth and depth of of the convergence between public health and environmental engineering. 

Complete all courses listed below unless otherwise indicated. Also complete any corequisite labs, recitations, clinicals, or tools courses where specified and complete any additional courses needed beyond specific college and major requirements to satisfy graduation credit requirements.
