Environmental engineering careers often begin with educational training in traditional engineering disciplines, but require specialized cross-disciplinary training to cover a broader breadth to address environmental issues. For engineering degree seeking students who are interested in pursuing environmental-related careers, the environmental engineering certificate enhances traditional education offered within degree programs available within the UK College of Engineering.

The Environmental Engineering Undergraduate Certificate requires a student to complete a total of 12 credit hours (200-level or greater), submit a report that reflects they can use environmental engineering and environmental science concepts to address environmental problems that combine academic disciplines. It integrates principles of engineering, biology, and chemistry with the development of sustainable solutions to environmental problems impacting ecosystem and human health.

Only nine credits of the certificate’s total 12-credits can also be applied toward the student’s engineering degree or another certificate program.
