GENERAL INFORMATION The Environmental Resources Engineering (ERE) Program is ABET accredited. It is one of the largest, oldest, and most respected undergraduate environmental engineering programs in the country. The mission of the ERE program is to prepare engineers to solve complex environmental resources problems. The program strives to educate leaders who will sustain, restore, and protect our natural resources and the environment. The program emphasizes hands-on learning; ERE students engage in frequent labs, field trips, and team projects, while enjoying a cooperative learning environment in classes that range from 12-70 students. The majority of ERE classes have fewer than 25 students. The department and university value diversity, inclusion and equity. Currently more than two-thirds of the tenure-track faculty are women, and two of eight tenure-track faculty are Latina. Many ERE students come from groups that have been historically underrepresented in engineering: 32% self-identify as coming from an underrepresented ethnic group, 41% are the first in their family to attend university, and 42% are Pell Grant eligible.
