Plan for a sustainable future in environmental engineering

Plan for a rewarding career in environmental engineering with a bachelor’s degree from UCF. Environmental engineers work to protect society from adverse environmental factors — and to protect the environment from natural and human activities. UCF’s program focuses on air pollution control, water and wastewater treatment, solid and hazardous waste management, environmental health and remediation. With this degree, you can improve the quality of life and safety of society, and plan, design, permit and maintain projects to comply with regulations and improvement of water, soil and air quality.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

  • UCF is consistently ranked among the top schools for engineering undergraduate education by U.S. News and World Report.
  • UCF is ranked the among the top five U.S. transportation science and technology programs, and is consistently ranked among the top civil engineering programs by ShanghaiRanking.
  • Sit for the national Fundamentals of Engineering exam during your senior year and move toward professional licensure
  • Choose an accelerated track that allows you to earn a B.S. and M.S. simultaneously

CURRICULUM AND PROGRAM ADMISSIONS

The B.S. in Environmental Engineering requires 128 credit hours, including general education classes, common program prerequisites, basic and advanced core classes, restricted electives and a capstone course. 

There are no additional requirements for admission into the program beyond admission to UCF. 

Students also have the option of pursuing the accelerated track, which allows them to earn a master’s degree as well as a bachelor’s degree. Qualified students may apply for the accelerated track upon completion of 64 credit hours. They may choose to complete a master’s degree in civil engineering or environmental engineering; however, acceptance into the accelerated track does not guarantee admission into the graduate program.
