Beginning Fall 2022, the college is offering a new major in environmental engineering. The major will be offered on both the college’s campuses: City Campus in Lincoln (UNL) and Scott Campus in Omaha (UNO). If you are passionate about the environment, enjoy solving problems and want to make a lasting impact, this degree program could be an excellent career choice.
With a degree in environmental engineering, you can actively pursue opportunities that impact all living things on our planet, including designing, creating and using structures and equipment to protect the environment and helping solve pollution problems and other major challenges.
As a student, you will be exposed to multiple topics within environmental engineering to devise engineering solutions for water and air pollution control and treatment, the drinking water supply, wastewater management, solid waste management, public health, water resources management, and sustainable design and industrial ecology.
The program will include courses in such areas as calculus, chemistry, environmental geology, computer science, engineering dynamics, thermodynamics, water resources engineering, environmental engineering, process design, air pollution/solid waste management, and more.
