PROFESSOR MARK S. KLIMA, Undergraduate Program Officer

Environmental Systems Engineering is an interdisciplinary program concerned with the sources and causes of industrial impact on the environment and the choice of appropriate remediation strategies. The program is designed to address critical environmental problems of the basic industries, especially those involved in the extraction, conversion, and utilization of mineral resources. The undergraduate curriculum in environmental systems engineering has been designed to equip students with the fundamentals necessary to achieve lifelong professional growth. Graduates are prepared to enter both the private and public sectors as environmental systems engineers or to pursue further education at the graduate level.

Integration of knowledge and skills acquired during the course of study enables the students/graduates of the program to do the following: solve environmental systems engineering problems using knowledge of mathematics, basic and engineering sciences, earth and atmospheric sciences, and economics; obtain technical data, interpret them, and apply the results to design environmental engineering systems; integrate professional, ethical, social, and economic issues as they pertain to industrial activity and environmental protection; communicate engineering results effectively and provide experience in team efforts; and undertake a habit of lifelong learning to maintain professional competency and up-to-date knowledge of contemporary issues facing the practice of engineering.

For the B.S. degree in Environmental Systems Engineering, a minimum of 130 credits is required.
