The mission of the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department is to promote learning and the creation, dissemination, and application of knowledge in civil and environmental engineering through integration of teaching, scholarship, and service.
The goal of the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department is to prepare students for engineering practice, advanced study, and lifelong learning in civil and environmental engineering. Graduates are expected to be proficient in the fundamentals of sustainable engineering analysis and design and understand the importance and methods of effective communication. Students are encouraged to use the extensive international network and educational resources of Syracuse University and the Syracuse community to broaden and enhance the quality of their university education.
The educational objectives of the environmental engineering program are to produce graduates who:
- can apply technical knowledge and problem-solving skills to advance their careers and serve the community;
- are prepared for engineering practice and advanced studies in environmental engineering;
- will engage in life-long learning to keep themselves abreast of new developments in their fields of practice or study; and
- are capable of effective written and oral communications.
Environmental Engineering Description
The B.S. degree program in environmental engineering emphasizes the application of engineering and science principles to the preservation and management of the environment. It provides a strong background in the basic and engineering sciences and a variety of courses in several environmental areas, including water and wastewater treatment, solid and hazardous waste management, air pollution control, transport and fate of pollutants, and environmental chemistry and microbiology. The program allows students to pursue a series of elective courses suited to individual interests and goals, as well as to obtain minors in a variety of subject areas. Double-majors with geography, economics, political science and policy studies are possible without any additional coursework.
This program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
Adjustments in the program can be made to accommodate transfer students from accredited two- and four-year institutions so they may develop their programs of study as soon as possible after admission.
