A Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Engineering requires 123-124 credit hours and the Environmental Engineering degree is designed for a four-year program of study. The minimum credit load for a full-time student is 12 credit hours per semester.
A student needs to complete general courses and general education electives within the first two years of study with a grade point average of 2.0 or better before taking the upper level core courses (300 and 400-level courses). However, to complete the program within four years, a credit load of 15 to 18 per semester is recommended. Also, this time can be reduced by attending summer sessions and/or interim sessions.
