Requirements for the Minor in Environmental Engineering (ENE)

The minor in Environmental Engineer­ing is composed of the following courses:

A. Two required courses:

  • ESM 212 Introduction to Environmental Materials Engineering or BME 305 Biofluids* or CME 318 Fluid Mechanics* or MEC 364 Fluid Mechanics*
  • One course selected from CHE 312 Physical Chemistry, short course or CHE 301 Physical Chemistry I

*May be taken as a technical elective if not taken as a required course.

B. Technical electives (choose four, of which at least one must be an ESG or ESM course):

  • ESG 301 Sustainability of the Long Island Pine Barrens
  • ESG 332  Materials Science I: Structure and Properties of Materials
  • ESM 334 Materials Engineering
  • ESM 488 Cooperative Industrial Practice or ESM 499 Research in Materials Science or ESG 487 Cooperative Research in Technological Solutions: at least 3 credits, with permission of Director of the Minor.
  • BIO 386/ENS 311 Ecosystem Ecology and the Global Environment
  • CHE 302 Physical Chemistry II
  • GEO 315 Groundwater Hydrology
  • GEO 316 Geochemistry of Surficial Processes
  • GEO 318 Engineering Geology and Coastal Processes
  • MAR 301 Environmental Microbiology
  • MAR 336  Marine Pollution
  • MAR 392 Waste Management Issues
  • MAR 394 Environmental Toxicology and Public Health
  • ATM 397  Air Pollution and Its Control
  • CHE 310 Chemistry in Technology and the Environment

Note:  Students in the College of Arts and Sciences (but not CEAS majors) may also use ESG 302 Thermodynamics of Materials or CME 304: Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics I as a technical elective for the minor in Environmental Engineering. 

Any substitution of a course outside this list for a technical elective requires the permission of the director of the minor prior to registering for the desired course.
