Welcome to the Environmental Engineering page.
The Environmental Engineering (EVE) program offers the Bachelor of Science degree major. The program is a multidisciplinary degree between engineering and earth and atmospheric sciences offering a customized degree tailored to the students’ interest and flexible to an ever-changing job market. Students may choose to take electives (15 credit hours minimum) in either department so they can gain practical experiences in a wide range of disciplines including civil engineering, geospatial sciences, meteorology and climate change, physical geography, geology, water resources, and/or sustainable systems. The EVE program integrates with other MSU Denver programs, centers such as Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Political Science, Business Management, Communication Arts and Sciences, One World One Water (OWOW) etc.
Students – All students who are considering a major in EVE are expected to consult with EVE faculty advisor. For more information or with any questions, please contact Dr. Jeno Balogh.
The mission of the Environmental Engineering program at MSU Denver is to provide excellent undergraduate education, through multidisciplinary interdepartmental collaboration, that prepares students to incorporate environmentally sustainable designs into natural and built environments.
Program Educational Objectives
Environmental Engineering program graduates will…

Program Student Outcomes
Student outcomes are used to evaluate the students and support the program educational objectives. The students in the Environmental Engineering program are expected to attain the outcomes (1) through (7) as defined by ABET Criterion 3. Student Outcomes.
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
- an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
- an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
- an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
- an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
- an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
- an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
