Minor in Environmental Engineering

This 18-unit interdisciplinary minor is designed for undergraduates from various engineering and science backgrounds who are interested in applying engineering approaches to environmental issues.


A minimum of 6 units selected from the following core:

Take one of the following courses:

  • C E 364 Environmental Engineering I: Fundamentals (3)
    Prerequisites: CHEM 111A, BIOL 200/BIOL 201 or MICR 200 with a grade of "C" or better,
    Prerequisite/Corequisite: CE 335.
  • CH E 475 Environmental Pollution (3)
    Prerequisite: CHEM 220A or CHEM 227 with a grade of "C" or better, or consent of instructor.

Take the following course:

    Prerequisite: CHEM 227 with a grade of "C" or better or consent of instructor.

Take 12 units from the following:

  • CH E 415, CH E 445, CH E 485; C E 466; E T 409F

Most of the courses in the minor require some background in engineering and/or chemistry. Upper division students majoring in Biology, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, or Mechanical Engineering may have sufficient background to select from the above choices without needing additional prerequisites. Those majoring in other branches of science and engineering may need several additional courses in engineering and/or chemistry to meet prerequisite requirements of courses in this minor.

All prerequisites to the courses in the minor must be completed with a grade of "C" or better.
