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.
