Environmental and water engineering is an interdisciplinary field that combines principles of chemistry and biology with engineering science to study the engineered approaches to protecting water and environment. Environmental and water engineering can include water supply and sewerage systems, water and wastewater treatment, waste management, water quality in coastal areas and environmental resources management. The main objective of an environmental and water engineer is to learn the skills and technologies needed to protect our water and environmental resources.
Students enrolling in the environmental and water engineering minor should have normally completed a minimum of 60 credits and be in good academic standing.
The following rules will apply:
• The minor consists of a minimum of 18 credits, including at least 12 credits in courses at or above the 300 level.
• At least nine credits of the 18 credits required for the minor must be taken in residence at AUS.
• At least six credits of the 12 credits at or above the 300 level must be taken in residence at AUS.
• A minimum GPA of 2.00 must be earned in courses completed to satisfy the minor.
Students seeking a minor in environmental and water engineering must successfully complete the following courses or their equivalent. All course prerequisites must be satisfied.
• EWE 331 Introduction to Water and Environmental Engineering
