Environmental engineers design, construct, and operate systems that protect the environment and human health, recover resources, and enable society’s continued development. As an environmental engineering student at Bucknell, you will work side-by-side with our professors to produce safe drinking water, use microbes to turn food waste into energy, and study wetlands and green infrastructure to prevent harmful storm water runoff from flowing into the Chesapeake Bay.

Bucknell prepares environmental engineers to positively influence governmental and corporate decisions regarding policy, environment and business. You’ll become an environmental engineer who supports all three pillars of sustainability — social, environmental and economic.
