Type of Offering

As a civil engineering major, you can add an environmental engineering concentration to your major and prepare for a career in this fast-growing engineering discipline. Take specialized courses in ecology, water and wastewater treatment, environmental systems, environmental ethics and more. You can learn about tradeoffs in the water-energy nexus, work side-by-side with an ONU engineering professor on environmental-related research, or take classes in related fields like biology and chemistry. You could engage in a summer research experience at a national lab for the Environmental Protection Agency or the National Park Service. You might decide to complete a co-op or internship at one of the biggest players in the environmental industry, like CH2M, AECOM, or Hull & Associates, which may lead to an offer of full-time employment. Graduate school is another great option for those looking to extend their knowledge and build a foundation of environmental research. The possibilities are endless.
