The new Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences curriculum merges environmental earth systems, hydrology and water flow and transport, and chemistry into a unique interdisciplinary curriculum focused on the environment at a range of scales. One option in the curriculum allows students to obtain an 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.   

* Students may rearrange the sequence of University Core Course, CEEES, and Technical Elective courses depending on individual schedules and minors or dual degrees.
