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.
