1. Introduction to Environmental Engineering
The Environmental Engineering Degree Guidelines provide an outline of the curriculum and policies of the Environmental
Engineering (EVEN) degrees offered by the College of Engineering and Applied Science of the University of Colorado at
Boulder. These guidelines are written primarily for the Environmental Engineering students and faculty advisors.
General curriculum and policy information for students is also available from the Office of Student Services in the Dean’s
Office of the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Similar information on academic support programs, advising,
and registration is available on the web at the College’s Undergraduate Student Services web page
(http://www.colorado.edu/engineering/ss_undergrad.html). Information on courses offered each semester is available
in the Registration Handbook and Schedule of Courses and the University of Colorado at Boulder Catalog published by the
University of Colorado. Course scheduling information is available on University’s Schedule Planner web page
(http://plus.colorado.edu/plus/planner/).

1.1. Overview of Environmental Engineering
Environmental engineers play a vital role in maintaining the quality of both human environmental systems and the natural
environment. Environmental engineering encompasses the scientific assessment and development of engineering
solutions to environmental problems impacting the biosphere, land, water and air quality. Environmental issues affect
almost all commercial and industrial sectors, and are a central concern for the public, for all levels of government, and in
international relations. These issues include safe drinking water, wastewater processing, solid and hazardous waste
disposal, outdoor air pollution, indoor air pollution and transfer of infectious diseases, human health and ecological risk
management, and prevention of pollution through product or process design.
To address these challenges, environmental engineers often encounter challenging problems that must be solved in datapoor situations as members of multidisciplinary teams. Environmental problems require creative solutions blended with
contributions from scientists, lawyers, business people, and the public. Good communication skills, as well as technical
proficiency, are essential for success in this arena. In addition, technology designed to address environmental problems is
marketed globally, opening up increasing opportunities for international work in the environmental engineering field.
1.2. History of the Environmental Engineering Program
The Environmnental Engineering Program at the University of Colorado at Boulder originated with a college-wide faculty
committee that met during the 1993-1994 academic year to develop a multi-disciplinary curriculum for a Bachelor of
Science degree in Environmental Engineering. The committee was headed by Prof. John Daily of Mechanical Engineering.
The degree program was intended to supplement environmental engineering options that were offered through the
Departments of Chemical Engineering and Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering (the Department of
Mechanical Engineering now offers an environmental engineering option as well).
The initiative to develop the EVEN BS degree and the Environmental Engineering Program to administer the degree was
motivated by recognition that (1) environmental engineering had matured into a full-fledged discipline of its own and (2)
environmental engineering intersected with the traditional disciplines of chemical, civil, and mechanical engineering, but
was not adequately covered by any single discipline. The faculty committee decided that students intending to work in
environmental engineering would benefit from a curriculum that focused on environmental engineering and related
courses regardless of which department offered those courses. At the same time, the existing environmental engineering
options could be retained in the Departments for students who were interested in environmental engineering but wanted
to pursue traditional Chemical, Civil, or Mechanical engineering degrees.
The proposed EVEN BS degree program was approved by the faculty of the College of Engineering and Applied Science in
the spring of 1994. The faculty committee then prepared a full proposal for the new degree program for the Colorado
Commission on Higher Education (CCHE), and the new EVEN BS degree program was approvied in the spring of 1998. The
first Director of the Environmental Engineering Program was Prof. Jana Milford of Mechanical Engineering. Students
began entering the program in the fall of 1998. The first degree was awarded in December 1999 (to a student who
transferred into the program as a junior).
3
In approving the new degree, CCHE relied on the College's intent to deliver the EVEN BS degree using existing courses and
faculty. To this end, the program is administered by the College, and operates through the participation of affiliated
faculty from Aerospace Engineering Sciences, Chemical Engineering, Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering,
and Mechanical Engineering. The College provides support for a faculty Director (currently Prof. Joseph Ryan of Civil,
Environmental, and Architectural Engineering), a Program Coordinator (Joan Hemm), and adjunct instructor and teaching
assistant support for field course to supplement the EVEN curriculum (EVEN 4830 Environmental Sampling and CVEN 3434
Aquatic Ecology). The four departments that participate in the program are committed to regularly offering the courses
that comprise the EVEN curriculum, coordinating to avoid scheduling conflicts, and sharing academic advising and other
faculty service requirements.
1.3. Educational Objectives
The educational objectives of the Environmental Engineering Bachelor of Science degree are to
1. Provide a curriculum to our students that imparts proficiency in the sciences, mathematics, and engineering
disciplines needed to pursue a professional career or advanced degrees in environmental engineering.
2. Emphasize to our students the importance of the design process, team work, and communication in
environmental engineering education, research, and practice.
3. Furnish our students with ample computer, laboratory, and field learning experiences to reinforce engineering
concepts and provide skills useful for employment and advanced learning.
4. Encourage our students to engage in a coordinated exposure to a set of arts and humanities courses that
complement their environmental engineering education.
5. Integrate research into our curriculum to develop independent work and communication skills in our students.
6. Recognize and respond to the changing nature of the preparation required for a professional career or advanced
degrees in environmental engineering in our curriculum offerings.
7. Prepare students to cope with the unique challenges and ambiguities of environmental problems, which typically
require multidisciplinary approaches in data-poor situations with competing technical, economic, and social goals
in an ethical manner.
8. Instill in our students a responsibility to serve the needs of our society and protect the future of our planet in an
ethical manner.
9. Inspire value of education and life-long learning in our students.
10. Provide students with direct contact with the faculty through advising and participation in research projects.

2. Environmental Engineering Degree Programs
2.1. Bachelor Science Degree in Environmental Engineering
2.1.1. Overview of EVEN BS Degree
The Bachelors of Science degree in Environmental Engineering (EVEN) at the University of Colorado provides preparation
for professional proficiency or graduate training in environmental engineering in a four-year curriculum.
The curriculum includes courses in engineering fundamentals and applications, advanced mathematics, chemistry,
physics, biology, and geology, and the arts and humanities. In common with other fields of engineering, courses in solid
mechanics, fluid dynamics, and thermal sciences are at the core of the Environmental Engineering Bachelor of Science
degree. Courses specific to environmental engineering practice include water and wastewater treatment, hazardous
waste storage and treatment, and air pollution control. In addition, environmental engineering requires hands-on
laboratory experiences, up-to-date skills in the use of computers for modeling and data analysis, and experience in the
design of environmental engineering systems. Many of the required engineering courses in the Bachelor of Science
curriculum are culled from Aerospace Engineering Sciences, Chemical Engineering, Civil, Environmental and Architectural
Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.
The curriculum also includes four Option courses and three technical elective courses. The four Option courses represent
an area of specialization in environmental engineering selected by the student beginning in the junior year. The
curriculum includes four sets of Options courses representing specialization in
•
•
•
•
Air Quality
Applied Ecology
Chemical Processing
Water and Wastewater
Students may also formulate their own sequence of Option courses representing an area of specialization not included in
the list above; this selection must be done by petition to the Environmental Engineering Program. Students in the
program are also encouraged to participate in research through independent study projects, the Undergraduate Research
Opportunities Program (UROP), or as undergraduate research assistants in sponsored research programs.
2.1.2. Curriculum for EVEN BS Degree
The following section contains the curriculum table for EVEN BS degree. The curriculum represents “contract” of sorts
with incoming students – for students entering the program during the 2002-2003 academic year, completion of this
curriculum with a satisfactory grade point average is the requirement for graduation. The curriculum also represents a
guarantee that the courses listed (or acceptable substitutes) will be available in the semesters listed.
The curriculum is somewhat dynamic, despite its contractual nature. Minor changes may be made during the academic
year. Major changes may be made between academic years. To meet graduation requirements, students are expected to
follow the curriculum in effect for the academic year they started the program; therefore, students should keep a copy of
the Degree Guidelines for the academic year they start the program. In some cases, students may elect to follow a later
curriculum revision with Program approval; however, students may not elect to follow a curriculum in effect before they
started the program.
The curriculum below shows the recommended sequence of courses. In each curricula, courses marked with an asterisk
(*) are offered only in the semester shown. Other courses are offered in both semesters. The scheduling of courses
marked by a cross (†) is not limited by the timing shown in the curricula. For example, the required course in Probability
and Statistics (junior fall in the EVEN BS curriculum) may be taken in another semester (provided that all prerequisite and
co-requisite course requirements are met) because Probability and Statistics is not required by an course following it in
the curriculum schedule.
Many required courses in the EVEN BS curriculum offer a set of courses from different engineering departments as choices
(Solid Mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer, Probability and Statistics, and Numerical Methods).
5
Students may choose any of the offerings from different departments for these required courses; however, students
should evaluate these choices carefully depending on their major interest in environmental engineering. For example, a
student interested in the Air Quality Option would do best to choose the Mechanical Engineering courses for Solid
Mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, and Heat Transfer. A student interested in the Chemical Processing
Option would do best to choose Chemical Engineering courses (in fact, CHEN 3320 Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics
is required for some of the Chemical Processing Option courses). The number of these required courses with choices
among department offerings is greatly reduced in the dual EVEN/CHEN BS and EVEN/CVEN BS degree curricula because
courses from CHEN or CVEN are required to fulfill graduation requirements in the second BS degree.
For certain courses in the EVEN BS degree curricula, students may encounter problems and concerns about prerequisite
and co-requisite course requirements not being met. There is no need for concern; the Environmental Engineering
Program has consulted in detail with the departments and faculty offering these courses and has gained assurance that
the sequence of courses in the EVEN curricula is appropriate for engineering students. For example, CHEM 4511 Physical
Chemistry 1 lists CHEM 3311 Organic Chemistry 1 as a prerequisite in the University of Colorado Course Catalog, but the
Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry has approved the EVEN course sequence.
Guidance on selection of Option courses, Humanities and Social Science (H&SS) courses, and techical elective courses is
offered in Section 4.

2.2. Dual Bachelor of Science Degrees
The Environmental Engineering Program has set up two dual degrees to be completed in four and one-half years, one with
Chemical Engineering and one with Civil Engineering.
2.2.1. Environmental Engineering/Chemical Engineering Dual Bachelor of Science Degrees
The Environmental Engineering Program is cooperating with the Chemical Engineering (CHEN) Department to offer dual
EVEN BS/CHEN BS degrees in a four and one-half year curriculum. The curriculum provides the two degrees by closely
following the Environmental Engineering degree with the Chemical Processing Option and adding key fundamental courses
in the Chemical Engineering Bachelor of Science curriculum. Students pursuing the EVEN BS/CHEN BS dual degrees are
encouraged to seek advice from one of the Chemical Engineering faculty participating in the Environmental Engineering
Program (see Section 6). There are no special qualification requirements, other than satisfactory progress toward both
degrees, for pursuing the dual EVEN BS/CHEN BS degrees.
The EVEN BS/CHEN BS dual degree curriculum is presented on the following page. The Degree Worksheet is available in
the Appendix.
2.2.2. Environmental Engineering/Civil Engineering Dual Bachelor of Science Degrees
The Environmental Engineering Program is cooperating with the Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering
Department to offer dual EVEN BS/Civil Engineering (CVEN) BS in a four and one-half year curriculum. The curriculum
closely follows the Environmental Engineering degree with the Water and Wastewater Option. Key fundamental courses in
the Civil Engineering and the Environmental and Water Resources track in Civil Engineering are added. Students pursuing
the EVEN BS/CVEN BS dual degrees are encouraged to seek advice from one of the Civil, Environmental, and Architectural
Engineering faculty participating in the Environmental Engineering Program (see Section 6). There are no special
qualification requirements, other than satisfactory progress toward both degrees, for pursuing the dual EVEN BS/CVEN BS
degrees.

2.3. Concurrent Bachelor of Science/Master of Science Degree
The Environmental Engineering Program is cooperating with the Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering
Department to offer concurrent EVEN BS/CVEN MS degrees in a five-year curriculum (currently, this is the only concurrent
BS/MS degree that includes the EVEN BS degree). To fit the BS and MS degrees in only five years, students are allowed to
count two technical elective courses (6 credit hours) taken at the graduate level for both the EVEN BS and CVEN MS
degrees. Students must first complete the four-year Environmental Engineering Bachelor of Science curriculum (Section
2.1); they then complete the requirements of the CVEN MS degree in the graduate programs of either Environmental
Engineering or Water Resources Engineering.
The purpose of the concurrent EVEN BS/CVEN MS degrees is to allow capable students to gain greater depth of knowledge
in environmental engineering by jointly pursuing BS and MS degrees. The concurrent degree program offers students
greater flexibility in scheduling technical electives and graduate courses and to enable them to obtain BS and MS degrees
in five years.
Students seeking to pursue the concurrent EVEN BS/CVEN MS degrees must achieve a minimum grade point average of
3.25 when they submit an application for admission to the program. Students are expected to submit an application
during the sixth or seventh semester of their undergraduate program in EVEN (75 to 110 credit hours). Applications are
made to the Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering Department. The following items are needed to complete
an application:
•
•
•
•
•
Concurrent EVEN BS/CVEN MS Degrees application form (no application fee)
Four letters of recommendation
University of Colorado Application for Graduate Admission form, Part II only
Certification by the EVEN Program that the required number of coursework hours have been completed
Copy of internal transcript
The application deadlines are April 30 for admission to the program for the following fall and October 30 for admission for
the following spring semester.
To continue in the program, students must maintain full-time status with a cumulative GPA of 3.25 to remain in the
program. In addition, to count the two graduate courses (6 credit hours) for both the EVEN BS and CVEN MS degrees, the
student must achieve a grade point average of at least 3.5 in the 24 credit hours taken immediately after admission to
the program. For the CVEN MS, students may complete the requirements for either the Plan I (thesis) or Plan II (course
work only) Master of Science degrees.
Students admitted to the concurrent EVEN BS/CVEN MS degrees program who do not meet the requirements for
completing the concurrent degrees or who elect not to complete the concurrent degrees may count appropriate graduate
courses toward the technical elective (up to 9 credit hours) and option course (up to 12 credit hours) requirements for the
EVEN BS.
Students pursuing the EVEN BS/CVEN BS dual degrees are encouraged to seek advice from one of the Civil, Environmental,
and Architectural Engineering faculty participating in the Environmental Engineering Program (see Section 6).
12
3. Advising
3.1. Advising Process
Each Fall and Spring semester, just prior to the registration period for the following semester, students are required to
meet with their faculty advisors for academic counseling. In the Environmental Engineering Program, faculty engage in
academic counseling to promote greater student-faculty interaction. Faculty advisors are also available for academic and
career counseling beyond the required meetings each semester at the student’s request.
A few weeks before each advising period, the Program Coordinator will announce to students and faculty advisors by email
the advising period schedule. With this email, an updated version of these Degree Guidelines and other advising
information will be sent.
Students must make an appointment with their faculty advisors during the advising period. Faculty advisors will give
meetings with advisees high priority during this time. In preparation for the meeting, students should assemble a
proposed course plan for the following semester using these Degree Guidelines and the course schedule for the following
semester (published in the University of Colorado Registration Handbook each semester or available on the University of
Colorado Personal Look-Up Service (PLUS) web page (http://www.colorado.edu/plus/planner/).
During the advising meeting, students must discuss their proposed course plan with their faculty advisor. Faculty
advisors will record course selections on the Degree Requirements Worksheet (see Forms Appendix). Faculty advisors will
also be available to counsel the students on academic performance, long-term course plans, graduation requirements,
career planning, and any other personal issues that affect the students education. At the conclusion of the meeting, the
faculty advisor will sign the students’ academic file certifying that advising has been done.
After the advising meeting, students are required to fill out an Advising Evaluation Form (see Forms Appendix) to provide
feedback on the advising process. These forms must be submitted to the Program Coordinator.
Once the Coordinator has received a student’s academic file with the signature of the faculty advisor (from the faculty
advisor) and the Advising Evaluation Form (from the student), the Coordinator will “raise the flag” to allow the student to
register.
Many academic advising questions pertain to the “logistics” of course scheduling and registration. Most of these
questions should be directed to the Program Coordinator (see the cover sheet for contact information) instead of the
faculty advisors. The Coordinator will provide assistance on procedural questions involving registration, degree plans,
graduation requirements, and the petition process. In addition, the Coordinator will help students determine whether a
particular situation should be discussed with their faculty advisor.
3.2. Program Contact with Students
Official notices to students concerning Environmental Engineering Program advising, curriculum, registration, graduation
requirements, and policies will be made by e-mail. By default, official notices will be sent to your University e-mail
address as listed on the student directory on the web (“411,” http://www.colorado.edu/search/). You may arrange to
also receive official notices at a non-University e-mail address of your choice by notifying the Program Coordinator;
however, the Coordinator will provide this service only as convenience to you. The Coordinator will not responsible for
information sent to abandoned e-mail addresses. To reiterate, the Program is required to notify you only at your
University e-mail address.
3.3. Academic Records
An official Environmental Engineering Program academic file will be maintained for each student by the Program
Coordinator. This file will contain copies of official documentation related to academic history and progress.
The Environmental Engineering Program Coordinator and faculty advisors will strive to provide you complete, timely, and
accurate academic advising, but ultimately, the responsibility of meeting graduation requirements is yours.
Consequently, you should ensure that all copies of relevant paperwork are present in your academic file and that you keep
your own copies of critical information.
13
3.4. Additional Advising Resources
Students may also be referred to various College of Engineering and Applied Science and University of Colorado counselors
for certain issues.
Many of the College’s student support services are listed on the College web page
(http://www.colorado.edu/engineering/ss_undergrad.html). At the University level, students may consult with the
following groups:
•
Career Services – provides services for resume and interview skills improvement, internship and job postings,
and career fairs (http://www.colorado.edu/careerservices/, 34 Willard Hall, 303 492 6541)
•
Counseling and Psychological Services: A Multicultural Center -- provides a variety of programs and assistance to
address
general
academic
or
personal
issues.
(http://www.colorado.edu/sacs/counseling/, 134 Willard Hall, 303 492 6766)
3.5. Faculty Advisor Assignments
Freshmen, change-of-major, and transfer students entering the Environmental Engineering Program will be assigned a
faculty advisor (Table 3). To foster better student-advisor relationships, faculty advisors will follow students through the
four-year EVEN BS program.
Incoming freshmen are assigned to one of the academic advisors listed for freshmen – consult the Program Coordinator
about your assigned faculty advisor.
Incoming change-of-major and transfer students will initially be advised by the Program Director. At the first advising
meeting for change-of-major and transfer students, transfer credits will be evaluated and a complete course plan to meet
graduation requirements will be formulated. After the initial advising, change-of-major and transfer students will be
directed to a faculty advisor handling the class to which the incoming student is assigned.

4. Academic Policies
4.1. Prerequisite and Co-Requisite Courses
Most of the courses in the Environmental Engineering curricula have prerequisite and co-requisite requirements (see the
last two tables in the Forms and Appendix). The purpose of these requirements is to ascertain that you are adequately
prepared for subsequent courses.
Students must successfully complete all prerequisite courses before enrolling for a required course in the Environmental
Engineering curricula. Students must also simultaneously enroll in and complete satisfactorily (grade of C- or better) all
co-requisite courses. Successful completion means receiving a grade of C- or better. Grades of D+, D, D-, F, IF, or IW do
not satisfy this requirement.
Successful completion of prerequisite and co-requisite courses will monitored for all required courses in the Environmental
Engineering curricula by the Program Coordinator. Students who do not successfully complete (grade below C-)
prerequisite and co-requisite courses must re-take those courses before advancing in the curricula. Students required to
re-take courses are strongly urged to consult their faculty advisor before re-taking courses to evaluate areas in which
academic performance can be achieved.
The prerequisite and co-requisite policy applies only to required and option courses in the curricula. If a student has not
satisfied all of the prerequisite and co-requisite requirements for an elective course (technical, humanities & social
sciences, chemistry), that elective course may be taken with the approval of the instructor.
Courses not listed in the curricula may be used to satisfy prerequisite and co-requisite requirements if transfer credit has
been approved or a petition to the Environmental Engineering Program has been approved. Generic College of
Engineering and Applied Science petition forms for this purpose may be obtained from the Program Coordinator.
4.2. Transfer Credit
Five different kinds of students transfer into the Environmental Engineering program:
•
•
•
•
•
students changing majors from the College’s Open Option major to EVEN
students changing majors from another of the College’s engineering degrees to EVEN
students changing majors from another College or School in the University of Colorado to EVEN
students changing majors from another campus of the University of Colorado to EVEN
students transferring from another institution
For all transfer students, the College of Engineering and Applied Science requires that the last 45 credit hours used to
fulfill degree requirements must be taken as a regular degree student in the College of Engineering and Applied Science in
the University of Colorado at Boulder. More details about the College of Engineering Applied Science transfer credit
policies are available in the Dean’s office or online at the following URL on the College of Engineering and Applied Science
web page (http://www.colorado.edu/engineering/General/TransferCreditPolicy.pdf).
4.2.1. Change of Major: From the College’s Open Option to EVEN
The EVEN program accepts the College of Engineering and Applied Science Open Option curriculum as a substitute for its
own first-year curriculum. Grades of C- or better must have been achieved for all courses counting for required courses in
the EVEN curriculum. Students changing from Open Option to EVEN must complete a change-of-major form for the
College.
A description of the College’s Open Option is available online on the College web page
(http://www.colorado.edu/engineering/General/OpenOption.pdf).
4.2.2. Change of Major: From a College Engineering Degree to EVEN
Evaluation of the credit hours earned in another engineering degree curriculum in the College of Engineering and Applied
Science for credit in EVEN will be done at the first advising meeting with the EVEN Program’s Director. Grades of C- or
better must have been achieved for all courses counting for required courses in the EVEN curriculum. Because EVEN is a
multi-department program, most students coming into EVEN from other engineering degree programs in the College are
15
able to transfer most of their basic courses for credit toward the EVEN BS degree. Students changing from another
engineering degree to EVEN must complete a change-of-major form for the College.
4.2.3. Change of Major: From Another College or School to EVEN
Students transferring into EVEN from another of the University of Colorado’s Colleges and Schools (e.g., College of Arts
and Sciences, School of Business) must first complete an Intra-University Transfer (IUT) application to the College of
Engineering
and
Applied
Sciences
(details
are
available
in
the
Dean’s
Office
or
at
http://www.colorado.edu/engineering/General/IUT.pdf). Once the application is approved, credit hours from the nonengineering degree will be evaluated for EVEN credit at the first advising meeting with the EVEN Program’s Director.
Students changing majors to EVEN from non-engineering degrees must complete the mathematics, chemistry, and physics
requirements of the first year of the College’s Open Option curriculum to apply for IUT; therefore, they will typically start
EVEN with credit for most of the first year of the EVEN curriculum.
4.2.4. Change of Major: From Another Campus of the University of Colorado System
Students transferring into EVEN from another campus of the University of Colorado system will, in almost all cases, have
the same status as transfers from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Students from other campuses should refer to
the three change-of-major sections above. More details on Intercampus Transfer to the College of Engineering and
Applied Sciences are available in the Dean’s Office or online (http://www.colorado.edu/engineering/General/ICT.pdf).
4.2.5. Transfer from Another Institution
For students coming to the EVEN Program from an engineering degree at another institution, an initial transfer credit
evaluation is performed by the University Admissions Office using the official transcript from the previous institution).
Courses in which the student received a grade lower than a C- will not be accepted by the Admissions Office.
Once the Admissions Office has completed its evaluation, the student will meet with the EVEN Director for evaluation of
transfer credits for the EVEN curriculum. Note that acceptance of transfer credits by the Admissions Office does not
mean that the transfer credits will count toward the EVEN BS degree; courses taken at another institution must match the
course requirements for the EVEN curricula. In most cases, identification of courses is straightforward; however, for
some courses, the EVEN Director may request documentation of course content (catalog descriptions, course syllabi).
4.2.6. Advanced Placement Credit
Advanced Placement (AP) credit may be approved on the basis of College Entrance Examination Board's Advanced
Placement tests. For students who have taken advanced placement courses in high school and who achieve the required
score in the CEEB's AP examination, advanced placement credit will be granted by the College of Engineering and Applied
Sciences as part of the admission process. Advanced placement credits must also be evaluated for credit toward the EVEN
curricula by the student’s faculty advisor or the EVEN Director. If a student later takes a course for which advanced
placement credit was granted, the credit for the course taken at the University of Colorado will replace the AP credit.
For a listing of CU course equivalents for typical advanced placement credit, see the College of Engineering and Applied
Science Advanced Placement and MAPs guidelines (available in the Dean’s office or online at
http://www.colorado.edu/engineering/General/AdvancedPlacement.pdf).
4.2.7. Continuing Education Courses
Courses may be taken for EVEN degree credit through programs offered by the University of Colorado Division of
Continuing Education (see a full description at http://www.colorado.edu/ContEd/):
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Maymester
Summer Session
Available Credit for Eligible Special Students (ACCESS)
Center for Advanced Training in Engineering and Computer Science (CATECS)
Boulder Evening Credit
Independent Learning
Concurrent High School
16
A maximum of 16 credit hours taken through Continuing Education programs other than Maymester and Summer Session
can be applied to the EVEN BS degree (Maymester and Summer Session courses are equivalent to courses offered during
the regular academic year). A maximum of 8 of the 16 credit hours can be taken as Humanities and Social Sciences
courses. According to the College of Engineering and Applied Science, students must secure advance approval of the
Environmental Engineering Program and the Dean's Office prior to registering for Continuing Education courses.
4.2.8. Transfer Credit Evaluation for Dual Bachelor of Science Degrees
Students pursuing dual BS degrees (EVEN/CHEN or EVEN/CVEN) must have transfer credit evaluations performed by each
degree program.
4.3. Humanities and Social Sciences Electives
4.3.1. Importance of Humanities and Social Sciences to Environmental Engineers
The purpose of humanities and social sciences (H&SS) electives is to broaden the engineering education. In
environmental engineering, appreciation and knowledge of the social, historical, political, and economic context of
environmental problems is critically important. The EVEN BS degree requires 18 credit hours of H&SS courses. One H&SS
course is required – WRTG 3030 Writing on Science and Society – to improve writing and oral presentation skills. For the
remaining 15 credit hours of the H&SS requirements, the EVEN faculty recommended that you select a sequence courses
that complement and broaden your education in environmental engineering and that you avoid random selection of
unrelated introductory courses. Some H&SS courses that might be of interest to environmental engineers includes
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Anthropology 4330 Environmental Archaeology
Environmental Design 2001 Introduction to Social Factors in Environmental Design
Economics 3545 Environmental Economics
Geography 2412 Environment and Culture
History 4267 Mining in the Western United States
History 4417 Environmental History of North America
Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology 1030 Plagues, People, and Microorganisms
Peace and Conflict Studies 3520 Environmental Dimensions of International Security
Philosophy 2140 Environmental Justice
Philosophy 3140 Environmental Ethics
Political Science 3201 Environment and Public Policy
Sociology 3091 Environment and Society
Additional courses of interest to environmental engineers may be found in the required and recommended curricula for
the Environmental Studies program in the College of Arts and Sciences (http://www.colorado.edu/envirostudies/).
4.3.2. Humanities and Social Sciences Requirements
The Environmental Engineering Program follows the College of Engineering and Applied Science H&SS requirements
(available online at http://www.colorado.edu/engineering/General/HSS.pdf). A total of 18 credit hours of H&SS
electives is required for graduation. At least six of the required credit hours must be at the upper division level (3000- or
4000-level courses). In accordance with the rules of the College of Engineering and Applied Science, a course on writing
and oral presentations (WRTG 3030 Writing on Science and Society) is required (some options are listed below). This
course provides 3 credit hours of upper division H&SS credit. The remaining courses must be selected from the College’s
approved H&SS course list (available online at http://ecad100.colorado.edu/homer/). Petitioning for the approval of
courses not on the approved list is allowed (see below).
Some substitutes for WRTG 3030 are accepted by the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the EVEN Program.
The Herbst Humanities Program (http://www.colorado.edu/engineering/herbst/) offers a two-semester (6-credit)
sequence of seminar courses that can be substituted for WRTG 3030 – HUEN 3100 Humanities for Engineers 1 and HUEN
3200 Humanities for Engineers 2. The second course in this sequence does not count as H&SS credit. Occasionally, other
writing courses have been offered in the College of Engineering and Applied Science (e.g., GEEN 3000 Professional
17
Communications for Engineers, GEEN 3860 Writing and Communication in Engineering) that may be substituted for WRTG
3030.
Students may petition the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences for approval of a H&SS course not on the HOMER
list. It is strongly suggested that the petition be approved before enrolling in the course.
4.3.3. Some Specific Inclusions and Exclusions for the H&SS List
Foreign language courses generally satisfy the humanities and social science requirements.
The first seminar in the Minority Engineering Program (GEEN 1510) provides one hour of lower division H&SS credit; the
second course (GEEN 1520) provides no credit.
Generally, courses in performance and the fine arts, mathematics, and natural sciences are not acceptable as H&SS
electives. The following courses are specifically excluded as satisfying H&SS requirements:
•
•
•
courses in painting, sculpture, photography, and other fine arts
courses in musical instruments, band, choir, and other performance courses
courses in accounting, finance, personnel administration, and other business practices
4.3.4. Advice on Humanities and Social Sciences Course Selection
Guidance in the H&SS course selection process is available through the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences (see
the online guide HOMER, http://ecad100.colorado.edu/homer/). Students may also consult the College’s Humanities &
Social Science Advisor (Prof. Erik Fisher, Room ECOT 420, 492-3883, [email protected]).
4.4. Technical Electives
4.4.1. Overview of Technical Electives
Technical electives provide an opportunity for students to explore a range of engineering, mathematical, and natural
sciences topics to provide increased breadth or to focus on a specific technical area to develop in-depth understanding.
Although students are given great latitude in selecting electives, they are strongly encouraged to choose technical
electives wisely to complement their undergraduate engineering experience. Students should consult their faculty
advisors to plan their elective program.
4.4.2. Technical Elective Requirements
The EVEN BS curriculum requires 9 credit hours of technical electives. One of the technical elective courses (3 credit
hours) may be a lower division (1000-, 2000-level) “environmetal” science course (e.g., biology, geology, geography) that
serves as a prerequisite for a later upper-division technical elective or Option course. The remaining technical elective
courses (6 credit hours) must be taken at the 3000-level and above in engineering, mathematics, and natural sciences.
These courses must have substantially different content than EVEN required courses. Exceptions to these rules will be
considered by petition to the Environmental Engineering faculty. Graduate courses (5000-level and above) may also be
taken as technical electives; admission to graduate courses requires the consent of the instructor.
Technical electives counted toward the graduation requirements for the EVEN BS degree may not be taken pass/fail.
4.4.3. Specific Inclusions and Exclusions for Technical Electives
Independent study (see Section 4.7) is accepted as technical elective credit up to a maximum of 6 credit hours.
A maximum of 3 credit hours of Reserve Office Training Corps (ROTC) courses may be used as technical electives upon
commissioning.
Courses in communications and foreign languages do not count as technical electives.
4.4.4. Advice on Technical Electives
Students should consider using the allowance of three credit hours for a lower-division technical elective that will fulfill
prerequisites for upper division courses of interest. For example,
•
ATOC 1050 Weather and the Atmosphere
18
•
•
•
•
•
EPOB 1210 General Biology 1
GEOL 1010 Introduction to Geology 1
GEOL 1060 Global Change 1 – An Earth Science Perspective
GEOG 1001 Environmental Systems I – Climate and Vegetation
MCDB 1150 Introduction to Cellular and Molecular Biology
4.5. Independent Study
4.5.1. Introduction to Independent Study
An independent study is a collaboration between a student and a faculty on a special task or project that provides the
student with a learning experience. An independent study may also fill an academic need of importance to the student
that cannot be filled by the regular course offerings. Independent studies are opportunities for students to earn credit for
learning outside the normal lecture and laboratory class structure.
In the EVEN BS curriculum, independent studies may be counted as technical electives (up to a maximum of six credit
hours). Independent studies may be conducted in any increment of credit hours up to a maximum of 3 credit hours per
semester, with one credit hour representing 25 hours of actual work on the task or project. The Environmental
Engineering Program encourages students to consider independent study to engage in a long-term research project with a
faculty member.
4.5.2. Independent Study Requirements
The following rules apply to independent studies:
•
a maximum of 6 credit hours of independent study may be applied to EVEN BS degree requirements as technical
electives.
•
independent studies may not be applied as Option courses.
•
a maximum of 3 credit hours of independent study may be taken per semester.
•
independent studies may be supervised by any appropriate University of Colorado faculty member.
•
a proposal for an independent study must be made by filling out the Independent Study Agreement Form and
submitting the form to the EVEN Program Coordinator.
•
the EVEN director must approve the proposed independent study.
•
a final product of the independent study must be submitted to the Environmental Engineering Program before a
grade will be sent to the registrar’s office for posting.
•
approval of a second independent study is contingent on successful completion of the requirements for the first
independent study. A copy of the Independent Study Agreement Form for the previous independent study must
accompany the second application.
•
Independent studies may not be arrange retroactively.
•
independent study credit is not allowed for internship experiences, work-study, or work done for pay, following
University rules.
4.5.3. Independent Study Procedures
To propose an independent study, students must first determine with a collaborating faculty member the topic, goals,
number of credit hours (up to 3 per semester), work plan, and required product for the independent study. This
information must be recorded on an Independent Study Agreement Form (see Forms Appendix) and submitted to the EVEN
Program Coordinator before the drop/add deadline of the current semester.
The independent study proposal will be reviewed by the EVEN Director and approved, returned for amendment, or
disapproved owing to some deficiency in the proposal. The student will conduct the independent study under the guidance
of the faculty advisor. At the end of the independent study, the student must submit to the Environmental Engineering
19
program a copy of the final product (a report, a computer code, etc.) in addition to any required products due to the
collaborating faculty.
4.6. Petitions
4.6.1. Petition Rules and Guidelines
Any exceptions or waivers of the rules and regulations of the Environmental Engineering Program or the College of
Engineering and Applied Science must have prior approval by petition. The petition must be completed and submitted to
the Environmental Engineering Program for approval; the petition will then be forwarded to the Dean's Office. It is the
student's responsibility to follow up on the petition's progress. Petition forms may be obtained from the Program
Coordinator.
The following list provides some examples of situations for which a petition is required:
•
enrolling in a course when prerequisites have not been satisfied
•
substituting for a required course
•
dropping or adding a course after deadlines
•
requesting the pass/fail grade option for a course
Follow these guidelines when completing the petition:
•
review the rules and policies of the College of Engineering and Applied Science as published in the University of
Colorado Course Catalog published during the year of your admission to the College and the current edition(s) of
the appropriate Advising Guide to establish your need to petition and the specific rule or policy you wish to waive.
•
consult with the Program Coordinator and faculty advisor for clarification of Program rules and policies.
•
write the petition clearly (and neatly!).
•
provide complete information in the petition, including the number and title of all courses and pertinent data such
as course syllabi.
If properly completed, the petition process will normally take 1-2 weeks.
4.6.2. One-Time Forgiveness Policy
The College of Engineering offers a one-time forgiveness policy to allow correction of a significant registration error
resulting in an unanticipated grade. As indicated by the title, the forgiveness policy can be used only once. Forgiveness
may be requested in a petition describing the registration error. Students on academic probation or suspension may not
use this policy.
4.7. Academic Honesty
The Environmental Engineering Program adheres to the policies of the College of Engineering and Applied Science and the
University of Colorado at Boulder on academic honesty, which states:
"As members of the academic community, students have a responsibility to conduct themselves with the highest
standards of honesty and integrity. These qualities are also vital to the profession of engineering. Violations of
academic ethics tarnish the reputation of all students and will be treated with the utmost seriousness."
Be forewarned and discourage your fellow students from participating in any unethical activities. The following are
examples of some, but certainly not all, acts that violate academic ethics:
•
•
•
•
plagiarizing
cheating on assignments and exams
possessing or observing of exams or solutions to examinations prior to the exam
alterating, forging, or falsifying official records
20
•
•
performing work or taking an exam for another student
providing material of your own or of others to a fellow student
The College of Engineering and Applied Science procedures for handling academic ethics violations are available in the
Dean’s
Office
and
on
the
College
of
Engineering
and
Applied
Science
web
site
(http://www.colorado.edu/engineering/General/StudentAcademicHonesty.pdf). University academic honesty policies are
available online (http://www.colorado.edu/academics/honorcode/).

5. Graduation Requirements
5.1. Requirements for EVEN BS Degree
To graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Engineering from the College of Engineering and Applied
Science at the Boulder campus, students must meet the following minimum requirements:
1. Satisfactory completion of the required and elective courses in the Environmental Engineering Bachelor of Science
curriculum (see Section 2.1.). Students must satisfactorily complete 128 credit hours, of which the last 45 credit
hours shall be earned after admission to the College of Engineering and Applied Science as a degree student.
2. A minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.000 for all courses attempted and for all courses that count
toward graduation requirements, excluding "P" grades for courses taken Pass/Fail.
3. A minimum cumulative major grade point average of 2.000. This major grade point average includes only course
work in engineering courses.
4. Successful completion of the Minimum Academic Preparation Standards (MAPS) requirement of the College of
Engineering and Applied Science.
5. Completion of the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) examination during the final academic year.
6. Submission of a completed Diploma Card (available in the Dean's Office) to the Program Coordinator.
Graduation will be postponed by failure to complete these requirements.
Any exceptions to these requirements will require approval of the Environmental Engineering Program Director and the
Dean's office by petition.
To be sure that all requirements are met, students can consult with the Environmental Engineering Program Coordinator,
Director, and their faculty advisors. Students must be aware that meeting graduation requirements is ultimately their
own responsibility.
5.2. Fundamentals of Engineering Exam
One of the requirements for graduation with the EVEN BS degree is that students must take the Fundamentals of
Engineering (FE) Exam. This test serve two purposes: (1) it provides students with the opportunity to complete the first
step toward Professional Engineer (PE) status and (2) it provides the Environmental Engineering Program with a useful
assessment of engineering proficiency attained by EVEN graduates. Students usually take the FE Exam during their final
semester.
The Fundamentals of Engineering Examination is the first step toward achieving licensure as a Professional Engineer (PE),
a particularly important credential for engineers working as consultants. The FE Exam is administered by the National
Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES; http://www.ncees.org). The FE Exam is offered semiannually, in April and October. Students can register to take the FE Exam in the Dean’s office. Registration notices will
be distributed by the EVEN Program Coordinator.
The exam consists of two parts, the morning and afternoon “specifications.” The morning specification covers
engineering, science, and mathematics fundamentals. The afternoon specification is discipline-specific. Beginning with
the April 2002, exam, Environmental Engineering will be offered as the afternoon specification. The NCEES offers general
information, study materials, and sample questions for the FE Exam. Numerous review books for the FE Exam are also
readily available at web booksellers.
5.3. Requirements for Dual BS Degrees
5.3.1. General Requirements
Students may choose to pursue a second Bachelor of Science degree simultaneously with the EVEN BS degree. The second
BS degree may be pursued in an College or School at the University of Colorado at Boulder. To do this, they must
(1) satisfy the requirements of both BS degree curricula and (2) take a minimum of 30 credit hours beyond the credit hour
22
requirement for the degree with the higher credit hour requirement. If the requirements of both curricula can be
satisfied with fewer than 30 credit hours, the difference can be made up with elective courses.
5.3.2. Special Requirements for Dual BS Degrees with Chemical Engineering and Civil Engineering
Environmental Engineering students pursuing dual BS degrees with Chemical Engineering (CHEN) or Civil Engineering
(CVEN) may earn both degrees by (1) satisfying the requirements of both curricula and (2) completing a minimum of 15
credit hours beyond the credit hour requirement of the EVEN BS degree. The credit hour requirement for the EVEN BS
degree is 128 credit hours; therefore, the dual BS degrees require a minimum of 143 credit hours. The details of the dual
BS degree curricula are available in sections 2.2. and 2.3. of these Guidelines.
