After careful review, the College has decided to phase out the Environmental Engineering major over the next few years. No new students will be admitted into this program.

In addition to completing a liberal arts core, Environmental Engineering majors prepare for careers in science and for graduate school by completing a rigorous course load that blends advanced studies with plenty of lab experience.

What you'll learn studying Environmental Engineering

While most programs focus primarily on water and soil, Marietta’s Environmental Engineering Program also focuses on air pollution, ecosystems and hydrologic systems. Students dedicated to making lasting, positive impacts on the environment complete a rigorous course load that blends environmental science with a core liberal arts curriculum. Because Marietta’s robust general education requirements emphasize communication and problem-solving skills, our students hone these skills and learn how to apply them within their profession.

A Teaching College

Marietta prides itself on being a teaching college — a college whose professors’ primary focus is on educating students. Faculty encourage and team up with students on serious research projects and both attend and present at national conferences.

Leading the Way

Environmental Engineering is coming up front in research, problem-solving, and dealing with sustainability — and Marietta College’s program is leading the way. A minor in Environmental Engineering can complement many Petroleum Engineering and Geology Department programs.
