Environmental and water resources engineering focuses on using engineering principles to protect people from negative environmental effects and improve environmental quality. Environmental engineers are concerned with solutions to environmental problems related to soil, waste disposal, public health, water quality, and air pollution–including impacts for understanding and addressing climate change. Water resources engineers are specifically concerned with improving water quality from human impact. Areas of focus include wastewater treatment, hydrology, river mechanics, or ecological restoration of groundwater and streams. This research group takes from broad scientific areas to create solutions designed to protect and improve the health of the environment and the quality of human life.
