Environmental engineers use engineering and scientific principles to protect and preserve human health and the environment and to improve our quality of life. At the University of Nevada, our environmental engineering program focuses primarily on water quality and water availability, such as developing new methods to purify drinking water. Environmental engineers also develop systems for the transport and removal of pollutants and hazardous, industrial or municipal waste.
