Environmental Engineers manage our environment for the benefit of humanity and nature. They provide engineering solutions to problems with our land, air, and water resources. In may respects, an environmental engineer is similar to a traditional Civil Engineer, but with more emphasis on chemistry and environmental processes and less emphasis in areas such as structures and transportation.

MECOP currently accepts Environmental Engineering students from the following universities:

Skills & Disciplines

In both public and private practice, Environmental Engineers work in interdisciplinary teams to manage environmental problems through the application of scientific, engineering, and social skills. These challenges might include work involving air pollution and control, water supply and distribution, wastewater collection and treatment, solid and hazardous substances, pollution in surface and ground waters, public health, and the ecological health of our environment. MECOP interns in this discipline can build a variety of skills, including general engineering, design, analysis, research and writing.
