Environmental & Sustainable Engineering

Environmental & Sustainable Engineering Faculty

Lab Website The scope of this department will examine environmental protection ranging in scale from local to global. Environmental engineers apply scientific and engineering principles to the protection of human populations from adverse environmental factors, as well as the protection of environments from the negative impact of natural disasters and/or human activity, and the general improvement of environmental quality. Focus areas of environmental engineering include waste water management, air pollution control and mitigation, recycling of materials and waste management, radiation protection, industrial hygiene, environmental sustainability (including infrastructure design for sustainability), public health, and environmental law. This may involve developing, implementing, or improving systems related to water and air pollution control and mitigation, recycling of materials and waste management, radiation protection, industrial hygiene, environmental sustainability (including infrastructure design for sustainability), and public health all within the context of environmental laws and regulations.
