Environmental Concentration

  • Available as an accredited bachelor of science in engineering (B.S.E) degree with a concentration in environmental engineering

    Without environmental engineers, the world’s water, soil and air would be unclean. Tomorrow’s atmosphere would not sustain life.

  • Environmental engineering minimizes the harmful effects of issues like global warming, automobile emissions and ozone depletion. They develop solutions to environmental problems and are involved in areas such as recycling, pollution control and other public health issues.

    At Olivet, your course work, projects and professional development opportunities prepare you for a career in addressing global issues that directly impact our stewardship of God's creation. As an environmental engineer, you will use the principles of engineering, soil science, biology and chemistry as you study pressing problems in our environment and design sustainable systems to combat them.     

    Visit the Olivet campus to hear and see how an Olivet engineering degree will shape your future.
