Environmental Engineering Technology (ENVR)

(CIP Code 150599)

63 Semester Hours

Students in the Environmental Engineering Technology Associate Degree in Applied Science program explore the relationships between the human race and the dynamic environment in which they live. They examine the effects of pollution using applied math and science skills. Students also determine strategies to minimize or prevent waste in order to reduce the impact on the environment. They discuss innovative solutions to environmental issues and determine ways to improve processes and protect people from hazardous and toxic chemicals. Most importantly, students acquire skills and knowledge they can adapt to a variety of environmental, health, and safety career opportunities. Career opportunities include health and safety manager in industry, treatment facility operator in municipalities, engineering technician, laboratory technician in environmental monitoring laboratories, and environmental quality technician for state and federal regulatory agencies.

This program is primarily an online program with a required experiential learning component*. Some hybrid classes require on-site participation. Select courses may also be offered in a traditional format on campus.
