The EECE department sponsors an undergraduate minor in environmental engineering science. This 21-unit program prepares the student to seek an entry-level position as an environmental engineer, scientist or analyst. The minor also provides a solid foundation for undertaking graduate study in environmental engineering. Visit the EECE department website for more information.

1 First-year students potentially interested in majoring in chemical engineering should take EECE 101; all other students working toward the minor in environmental engineering science should take EECE 210.
2 Students taking both environmental chemistry courses can count one of them toward the environmental engineering electives.
