Environmental Engineering Major, B.S.Env.E.

B.S.Env.E. degree

Major Map

All requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering are listed in the degree section of this bulletin. The degree, including the major, requires a minimum of 131 hours.  

Admission Requirements, Retention & Termination Standards

Students can sign a major at any time, but in order to progress through their program, they must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher to enroll in any EGR course at 200 level and above. EGR 358 requires a signed Engineering Major to enroll in the course. EGR 358 is a required course for this major. The University requires that student have a signed major at 56 credit hours.

 

Retention & Termination Standards

In order to remain a major (BSEnvE) in environmental engineering, a student must meet the following criteria:

  1. Students must select courses in consultation with an engineering advisor.
  2. Students may not take courses required for this major Credit/No Credit.
  3. At least 36 credits of EGR/CHM or BIO courses must be taken at CMU to graduate with this major.
  4. Students must register for and take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam during their final year at CMU to graduate with this major.
  5. If a student does not continue to meet the retention standards, s/he may be asked to withdraw from the major. The department maintains the right to terminate a student from the major if s/he is not progressing satisfactorily.

The engineering and technology degree programs consist of extensive laboratory work that involves a close physical relationship with tools, moving machinery and electrical equipment necessitating specific safe practices. Examples include voltage checks, use of safety guards, and continuous observation of associated visual alarms, caution signs and auditory signals.
