Bachelor of Applied Science in Environmental Engineering (For students who entered the program Fall 2008 to present)

The program in Environmental Engineering is built upon a broad base of science and mathematics combined with an emphasis on engineering principles and design.

The rapid growth of industrial activities has produced many new problems related to environmental protection, resource conservation, and safety. The public has been aware of the risks involved in handling a wide range of hazardous and toxic materials by major incidents which have occurred in spite of improved design methods and operating techniques to overcome potential problems. Consequently, legislation is being formulated and enacted to control the release of toxic chemicals and pollutants into our environment. Environmental engineers are trained not only to solve problems of immediate concern, but also to develop practices and processes to systematically avoid their occurrence.

Environmental engineers have qualifications which will permit them to focus upon the transport, transformation and removal of contaminants in air, water, and soil, as well as the broader aspects of environmental planning and impact assessment.

Note: The baccalaureate degree program in Environmental Engineering is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board of the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers. With appropriate selection of electives, students would be qualified to apply to medical schools.
