Administered through the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, the minor in Environmental Engineering provides students with a basic background in the tools environmental engineers use to assess environmental impacts, model contaminant fate, and perform sustainable engineering decision-making. CoE students may declare the minor provided they meet the following eligibility requirements:
• Students must have a grade point average of 2.0 or higher at the time of declaration.
• Students must have completed the prerequisite coursework for the “core” minor courses with a C or better.
