Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering
The Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering in the College of Engineering teaches students the skills needed to design the technology and the systems that help minimize, prevent and repair environmental damage to air, land and water. Environmental engineers function at the interface between human needs and natural resource sustainability.
Temple’s program teaches you to
- collect and analyze field data to monitor environmental safety,
- seek solutions and improvements aimed at minimizing effects on the environment, and
- design resource recovery methods.
In small classes, you will learn the fundamentals of environmental hydrology and air pollution control, and how to design stormwater, wastewater and water treatment systems. You’ll also have access to cutting-edge labs with opportunities for undergraduate research.
By the time you complete your degree in environmental engineering, you’ll be able to function as a designer, project planner or researcher, and be a step closer to graduate studies and professional licensure.
