Beginning in the spring semester of your third year, EVEN students begin a three course (nine (9) credit hours) sequence in environmental engineering. You will take one 3-credit “environmental engineering design” course from those in list A and two additional (6-credits) “environmental engineering upper-division technical elective” courses from list B (or a second from list A, no double counting).

  • List A - Environmental Engineering Option Courses - at least one course from this list (you can petition to add additional courses)
    • CVEN 3424 Water and Wastewater Treatment (3 credits, S; prerequisites: CVEN 3414.)
    • CVEN 3323 Hydraulic Engineering (3 credits, F; prerequisites: CVEN 3313 or MCEN 3021 or GEEN 3853 or AREN 2120 or CHEN 3200.)
    • MCEN 3032 Thermo 2 (3 credits, F/S; prerequisites: Thermo, Fluids and DiffEq / Linear Alg all min grade of C.)
    • CHEN 3220 Chemical Engineering Separations and Mass Transfer (3 credits, S; prerequisites: CHEN 3210 or MCEN 3022 and CHEN 3320.This also requires the pre-req course of CHEN 2120)
  • List B Environmental Engineering Option Courses – upper division - at least two courses from this list (or a second from list A, no double counting). Students can petition to add additional courses.

You are encouraged to select courses that meet your career goals and interests.  This may include courses within a similar theme, or cross-cut a breadth of environmental engineering topics. As such, this list is organized under various specialization topics within environmental engineering.  Environmental engineering design courses from List A also fit under these various specialization topics.

It is critical that early in the curriculum you pay careful attention to pre-requisites for technical electives.  All courses that are numbered 5000 or above are graduate level courses and can only be taken with instructor permission; consult carefully with your advisor before selecting a graduate level course.  Graduate level courses are good options for double-counting for students admitted to the BAM program.
