Catalog Entry


Environmental Engineering

The Environmental Engineering concentration is designed to prepare the student for a future in application of engineering technology to environmental issues and problems. The need for trained environmental engineers is illustrated through the numerous employment opportunities available for individuals trained in this field in industry, at state and federal agencies, and with environmental consulting firms.

Systems Engineering

Systems Engineering is an interdisciplinary approach in understanding technical aspects in engineering process and design. System Engineering is a key component in systems implementation and management that enables the realization of successful systems. Improving business strategies of integrated systems requires solid foundations in mathematical tools, computer modeling and networking, and operation research.
