Environmental Engineering

environmental engineering

Environmental engineering tackles problems that threaten our health and well-being. It includes topics such as water quality, water supply, distribution, and drinking water treatment; wastewater collection, treatment, and disposal, Disease transmission; water quality parameters; physical, chemical, and biological processes in the treatment of water, wastewater, and biosolids.  At CSU Chico Dr. Stewart Oakley is a leading expert in the field of environmental engineering. There is also a club on campus called SEEHD (Sustainable Environmental Engineering for Human Development) that focuses on tackling environmental engineering and health problems such as water and wastewater treatment in developing countries.
