Environmental Specialization

Bachelor Of Science Degree in Civil Engineering with specialization in Environmental Engineering

The School of Civil, Environmental and Infrastructure Engineering faculty has diverse research and teaching interests in environmental engineering. In addition, other school faculty in soil mechanics and fluid mechanics overlap into the environmental engineering field. There are faculty across campus with interests and courses related to environmental engineering, including the Departments of Mechanical Engineering and Energy Processes, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Geology and Plant and Soil Science. Therefore, we also offer a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering with a specialization in Environmental Engineering. Students who want to specialize in Environmental Engineering take all the courses required for our Civil Engineering program and are required to choose technical electives from the following list of courses. For additional information, please refer to the SIUC Undergraduate Catalog.
