Department of Environmental and Technological Studies


We prepare our graduates for careers in which they will define, assess and solve our society's environmental and technological problems. We give them experiences that promote environmental and technological literacy and equip them to understand the connections between science, technology, society and the environment.

We do that with an interdisciplinary curriculum, connections to professional organizations, a strong system of industry-centered advisory boards and a variety of learning opportunities and experiences in the classroom, laboratory, field, internships and research.

Our faculty and students play an active role in Project Lead the Way, a national effort to build STEM skills and literacy.
