Should I major in environmental engineering?

  • You care deeply about protecting the environment and human health
  • You are interested in using chemistry and biology to improve the quality of air, water, and soil
  • You're committed to building a more sustainable world

Lehigh's environmental engineering program gives students a foundation in the causes, control, and prevention of environmental problems and trains them to ultimately solve those problems. Students study chemistry, environmental science, chemical engineering, hydraulic engineering, pollution control, waste engineering, and geo-environmental engineering. They compete in research symposia, present at national conferences, and contribute to real-world design challenges as well as government- or industry-sponsored projects.
