Environmental Engineering

This program is designed for students from across the University who have an interest in obtaining an introduction to issues such as sustainability, pollution prevention and environmental modeling.  Download the environmental engineering minor form here.

  • Engineering students must have credit for Math 1151 and Chemistry 1250 (or 1210 and 1220) prior to beginning the minor
  • Non-Engineering students must have credit for Math 1151 and Chemistry 1220 prior to beginning the minor
  • Once you have credit for these courses please contact Barry Tolchin ( or Mary Leist ( to discuss declaring the Environmental Engineering minor.

Global Option Engineering

Also known as "GO ENGR", Global Option Engineering is a curricular enrichment experience that can enhance your global competencies and better prepare you for the practice of enginering in a global environment. GO ENGR involves incorporating course selections with global perspectives and international experiences into your engineering degree program. Students plan an undergraduate engineering curriculum with elements related to international themes and global dimensions and do so without adding time to graduation.
