UTTC’s Environmental Engineering Associate of Science (AS) degree program provides a rigorous and affordable option for students interested in pursuing a career in Environmental Engineering. Small classes ensure personalized attention and extra tutoring when needed.
Environmental engineers are professionals who have broad scientific and technical knowledge, possess strong problem-solving and design skills, and enjoy working with people and communities. Environmental Engineers work collaboratively to improve public health, recycling, waste disposal, and water and air pollution control. Environmental Engineers are concerned with protecting populations from the effects of pollution in addition to improving environmental quality. The goal of any engineer, regardless of discipline, is to design solutions that improve the quality of life for all people.
Graduates of the program have two options: 1) seek employment as an Environmental Engineering Technician after the completion of the AS degree, or 2) transfer directly into the program at NDSU to complete the remainder of their coursework for a bachelors degree. Modules have been developed in conjunction with the new Environmental Engineering Bachelors of Science (BS) degree program at North Dakota State University (NDSU) so students are able to complete their first two years at UTTC and then transfer directly into the program at NDSU.
Graduates of the UTTC Environmental Science & Research AS degree program will:
- Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
- Analyze the ethical and professional responsibility of engineers.
- Apply appropriate mathematical techniques to solve a problem.
- Communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
