Bioenvironmental engineers solve human-related environmental issues by employing the principles of engineering and biotechnology along with the physical, chemical and biological sciences. Their efforts largely encompass initiatives to improve public health, recycling and waste disposal, water and air pollution, and other issues plaguing today’s natural environment.

The BE program at Rutgers gives students a broad and multi-disciplinary education in the fundamentals of bioenvironmental engineering as well as  proactive learning opportunities to utilize classroom learning in applications and design. The program offers a wide range of courses to help students understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context. In order to successfully complete the program, students must actively engage in collecting, analyzing and interpreting data and must demonstrate methodological and computer skills. Students also graduate with the ability to effectively communicate complex issues both orally and in writing.
