The Penn State Environmental Engineering (EnvE) program is oriented around solving environmental problems, with strengths in biological processes for energy production and remediation of hazardous contaminants, physical/chemical processes for contaminant removal, as well as conventional water and wastewater treatment.
The EnvE curriculum is built around four conerstones of understanding environmental problems: Environmental Chemistry, Microbiology, Transport, and Unit Processes. Other courses extend these basic themes to support research and teaching interests of the faculty and students.
The EnvE research program is supported by projects of over $10 million dollars funded by the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Environmental Health Sciences, the Department of Energy, the Environmental Protection Agency, the American Water Works Association Research Foundation, and many other federal, state, and local agencies as well as by various industries.
