Mission of the Environmental Engineering Program
The mission of the Environmental Engineering program at Tarleton State University is to prepare the students for employment as an Environmental Engineer and for engineering licensure, as well as for graduate studies in the areas of Environmental Engineering.
Extensive study in mathematics, engineering, physical sciences, and environmental engineering gives the Environmental Engineering graduate the ability to design components, processes, and systems to meet specifications and the ability to work and communicate effectively in team-oriented, project-management-driven environments. Computer simulation and modern analytical tools are used to solve environmental engineering problems within the fields of water supply and resources, environmental systems modeling, environmental chemistry, wastewater management, solid waste management, hazardous waste management, atmospheric systems and air pollution control. Additional studies in ethics assure that the graduate understands engineers’ special responsibilities to protect the health and well-being of the general public.
