Bachelor of Science, Environmental Engineering (Program Description)

Total Environmental Engineering Credits: 120

Student Outcomes

By the time of graduation, students in the Environmental Engineering program should possess the following:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

**Course offering frequency subject to change**

General Education (36)

1. Students must complete at least one course in each category to satisfy state of Florida regulation.
2. Students must take 12 hours of Arts and Humanities and Social Sciences.
3. Courses not taught by Florida Poly but listed in the State of Florida “common core” menu of courses can be accepted as transfer credit.
4. Transfer students who have fulfilled the general education requirements at another institution are understood to have fulfilled the requirements at Florida Poly.

Open Inquiry (3)

An additional 3 hours of general education coursework must be taken here.

Program Foundations / Advanced Math & Science (15)

1. This area may consist of additional general education courses or other foundational courses in a related field.
2. General education courses must be used first to fulfill General Education requirements before being applied here.
3. 15 credits here, plus 15 in Mathematics and Natural Sciences meet the 30 hour Basic Math/Science requirement for ABET.
4. Should count the following in this category: COP 2271C - Introduction to Computation and Programming (required for all programs) Credits: 3. Doing so ensures the 30 hour ABET requirement for “Basic Math/Science.”

Concentrations (12)

Concentrations should consist of no more than 12 credits. If other than “Advanced  Topics,” up to six credits may come from electives or courses in other concentrations.

Capstone (6)
