Concentration in Environmental Engineering

In this Section

A professional concentration in Environmental Engineering is available to all undergraduate students. The professional concentration enables students to satisfy the accreditation requirements of their particular major while focusing their electives on pertinent courses for environmental engineering. Electives used to satisfy requirements of the concentration include a set of science and engineering courses that reflect the sub disciplines of Environmental Engineering as defined by the ABET, Inc. Students receive a Bachelor of Science degree in their major with a professional concentration in Environmental Engineering.

TOTAL CREDITS FOR CONCENTRATION  18



CE majors that are in the Environmental concentration are recommended to take ES250 Electrical Science rather than ES223 Rigid Body Dynamics for their Sophomore ES elective.  In addition to the required courses, it is recommended that MA 383 Applied Statistics I be taken as a mathematics elective course for this professional concentration.  A minimum grade point average of 2.0 is required in the courses taken for their professional concentration.  At least one-fourth of the credit hours required must be completed at Clarkson University, unless the Dean of the Coulter School of Engineering approves an exception.
