Environmental Health Engineering

Environmental Health Engineering focuses on identifying, evaluating, and rectifying environmental problems that have a discernable impact on public health. The central idea is that many threats to human health are related to the environment, and the most effective way to alleviate the threat is to prevent or remediate the underlying environmental problem. Projects following this theme strive to pinpoint the environmental causes of disease occurence, and develop engineering solutions to these causal factors.
