Department of Environmental and Civil Engineering

Make a Positive Impact

Mercer’s environmental engineering students learn how to minimize environmental impact through the study water and waste treatment, air pollution control, solid waste systems, public health, atmospheric chemistry, and bioremediation.

Our civil engineering students learn how civil engineers have worked for centuries to design modern infrastructure such as roads, dams, airports, and more for a cleaner environment. Discover how civil engineers design, build, and maintain today’s infrastructure.

Undergraduate and Graduate Programs

  • B.S.E. in Environmental Engineering — Gain knowledge of complex and interactive cycles and receive hands-on experience in the lab. In your junior and senior years, engage in design projects and complete your degree with a 2-semester senior design project that involves identification, design, analysis, and testing of an environmental process or prototype.
  • B.S.E. in Civil Engineering — Learn one of the oldest engineering disciplines and receive instruction from a well-rounded curriculum that covers engineering fundamentals and principles in order to educate you on how to reach strategic design solutions.
  • M.S.E. in Environmental Engineering — Focus on biotechnology and remediation, water quality, solid and hazardous wastes, and air quality as you expand your knowledge of the field while advancing your career. The program consists of 30 credit hours.
  • M.S. in Environmental Systems — Study epidemiology and toxicology, water quality issues, solid and hazardous wastes, and air quality as you expand your knowledge of environmental systems and advance your career.
  • M.S.E. in Civil Engineering — Join one of our newest graduate programs and focus on environmental, geotechnical, structural, transportation, and water resource engineering along with sustainability, green engineering, and relevant global civil engineering topics.
