Small class sizes: our student to faculty ratio will enable students to enjoy close interactions with the instructors and their peers.

Conduct hands-on research: our faculty members are skilled in mentoring undergraduates in wet-lab and dry-lab environments and share their numerous areas of research.

Interact with environmental engineering leaders: students have the opportunity to attend various networking events to help them land careers in industry, government, academia and consulting firms to help clients manage their environment issues.

Solve pressing environmental challenges: students can contribute their enthusiasm, ingenuity, and creativity to solving the environmental challenges we face as a society. Different from other environmental engineering programs, we have a huge focus on sustainability to help create a circular economy.
