Environmental Systems Engineering (ENVSE) - (ARCHIVE)

PROFESSOR RICHARD HOGG, 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. Students enrolled in the program acquire:

  • a strong foundation in mathematics and the physical and engineering sciences.

  • a fundamental background in the application of the earth and atmospheric sciences and the principles of process engineering to the environmental problems of the basic industries, especially those involved in the extraction, conversion and utilization of minerals and fuels.

  • the ability to carry out experiments, interpret data and apply the results to the design and operation of engineering systems.

  • an understanding of the human, societal and economic issues involved in industrial activity and environmental protection.

The Environmental Systems Engineering program and Penn State as an institution are firmly committed to the concept of a broad education for all students. The ability to communicate, an understanding of ethics and professional responsibility and the recognition of education as a continuing, lifetime experience are emphasized throughout the curriculum.

For the B.S. degree in Environmental Systems Engineering, a minimum of 127 credits is required.
