Environmental Engineering - BS

The BS in Environmental Engineering degree coursework is specifically designed to educate students to solve environmental challenges facing public and environmental health, such as water treatment, waste management and climate change. The degree offers a broad range of coursework in the natural sciences and engineering, providing a multidisciplinary approach that merges with engineering principles to solve emerging and existing environmental issues. The program is appropriate for those who wish to protect human health and welfare while minimizing the adverse effects of human activity on the environment.

The freshman year is identical for degrees in aerospace engineering, biomedical engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, electronic systems engineering technology, industrial distribution, industrial engineering, manufacturing and mechanical engineering technology, mechanical engineering, multidisciplinary engineering technology, nuclear engineering, ocean engineering, and petroleum engineering (Note: not all programs listed are offered in Qatar). The freshman year is slightly different for chemical engineering in that students take CHEM 119 or CHEM 107/CHEM 117 and CHEM 120. Biomedical Engineering also requires a two semester sequence of chemistry courses consisting of CHEM 119 or CHEM 107/CHEM 117 and CHEM 120.  Students pursuing degrees in biological and agricultural engineering should refer to the specific curriculum for this major. It is recognized that many students will change the sequence and number of courses taken in any semester. Deviations from the prescribed course sequence, however, should be made with care to ensure that prerequisites for all courses are met.
