Environmental Engineering Option

The chemical engineering program, with its substantial requirements in chemistry, fluid dynamics, heat transfer, mass transfer, unit operations, and reaction kinetics, provides students with a unique preparation to deal with many aspects of environmental pollution problems. The option gives students a special focus on the application of chemical engineering principles and processes to the solution of problems relating to air pollution, water pollution, and the disposal of solid and hazardous waste. Three required courses must be selected, plus two electives from the electives list. Each course must carry a minimum of 3 credits. Students interested in the environmental engineering option should declare their intention during the sophomore year to the department faculty. They may consult with Prof. Russell Carr.
