Welcome to the Department of Enviromental Science and Technology! We’re looking forward to knowing you and helping you to make the most of your education.
The Environmental Science and Technology major prepares students for careers and graduate study on environmental problems and solutions that benefit humans and ecosystems. Students in ENST can choose one of four concentrations:
As human populations continue to grow, so do concerns about the effects of humans on ecosystems and how ecosystems and the built environment affect human health and well-being. The Environmental Science & Technology undergraduate major trains students in not only understanding the science behind impacts to ecosystems and human health, but also how to develop solutions addressing these impacts.
The major is taught by a group of outstanding faculty with a rich background in the environmental science and engineering who are as comfortable lecturing in a classroom as they are leading students through wetlands, wastewater treatment plants, and woods.
In today’s economy there are many career options for graduates from the ENST major, including careers in government agencies, environmental consulting firms, “green” industries, and non-governmental organizations. Furthermore, the ENST major includes a strong science and math foundation that prepares students for study in a wide range of graduate programs. Clearly, there is great need for students with strong, science-based knowledge of the environment and the ENST major directly addresses that need.
