Environmental Engineering Curriculum

The Environmental Engineering program will be available to students entering the CEEES department with sophomore status in the Fall of 2013 and future years. The Environmental Engineering program at Notre Dame will be seeking accreditation by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. It is a unique program that prepares students to look at all aspects of water and environmental problems from a range of perspectives including the Earth system, water movement (hydrology, fluid flow), environmental chemistry, geochemistry, and reactive transport. The Environmental Engineering degree program will prepare students to understand the necessary foundational chemistry, fluid flow and mixing mechanics, all within the context of the Earth system.

Environmental Engineering Curriculum: Total Number of Credit Hours = 131

CEEES Electives: Courses within the CEEES department level 30000 and above. Please see academic guide for exceptions.

Technical Electives: Courses within the College of Engineering and College of Science level 30000 and above. Please see academic guide for exceptions

The new Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences curriculum merges environmental earth systems, hydrology and water flow and transport, and
chemistry into a unique inter-disciplinary curriculum focused on the environment at a range of scales. One option in the curriculum allows students to obtain an
accredited environmental engineering degree while the other option in the curriculum allows students to obtain a science degree that has more depth in earth sciences. Both degree options allow the students to take most of the courses that are in the parallel option.
