Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering

http://www.catalog.gatech.edu/programs/environmental-engineering-bs/

The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) offers a BS degree in Environmental Engineering (BS EnvE). The curriculum is designed to provide students with fundamental knowledge of scientific disciplines and engineering principles that are used to address emerging environmental issues such as sustainable air, water, and land resources; human health; and environmental restoration. In the first and second years, students take courses in physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, English composition, and introductory engineering. The third year incorporates advanced engineering topics, including solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and laboratories in engineering materials, hydraulic engineering, and environmental monitoring and process engineering. The fourth year is elective based, allowing students to select courses from specific focus areas, including biological processes, sustainability, air pollution, and water resources, in addition to technical and design electives. A senior-level capstone design course serves to integrate principles from a range of disciplines. The curriculum is intended to provide students with the flexibility to develop tailored sequences of electives to meet individual education and career objectives, while ensuring a comprehensive engineering design experience. Prerequisites and Other Requirements Although students are not required to take courses during the indicated semester, all prerequisites must be satisfied. In addition to Institute academic requirements for graduation with a BS degree, the following requirements must be satisfied for the BS EnvE: A letter grade of C or better must be earned in The total number of quality points earned in CEE courses used to satisfy degree requirements must be at least twice the number of credit hours in those courses. If a course is repeated, the most recent grade will be used in applying this rule. No CEE courses may be repeated for the purpose of satisfying this rule if the original grade was a C or higher. Program Objectives Graduates will pursue a diverse range of careers that build on their engineering education. During the initial years of their careers, graduates will: apply technical proficiency in the principles and methods essential to modern environmental engineering practice. demonstrate understanding of global, societal, environmental, and sustainability issues related to environmental engineering. exhibit effective communication, teamwork, entrepreneurial, and leadership skills. engage in ethical and responsible practice while pursuing professional growth.

Bachelor of Science in Earth and Atmospheric Sciences - General

http://www.catalog.gatech.edu/programs/earth-atmospheric-sciences-general-bs/

The EAS degree is comparable to traditional degrees in meteorology and environmental sciences, but the program has several unique attributes. EAS courses provide "hands-on" experiences in collection and interpretation of environmental data and in predictive modeling. The integrated approach of the program gives a broad environmental background while still allowing students to specialize in meteorology, earth science, education, or a business option. The program prepares students for graduate study or immediate employment in fields such as meteorology, air quality, environmental chemistry, exploration geophysics, geological engineering, geological hazards, impact assessment, and environmental policy. Electives (30 hours), both within the School and in other units of Georgia Tech, allow students considerable flexibility in tailoring their degree programs according to individual career goals. The School provides incentives and encouragement for undergraduate students to participate in ongoing research with the faculty. EAS Undergraduate Information

Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering - Micro- and Nanoengineering

http://www.catalog.gatech.edu/programs/mechanical-engineering-micro-nano-engineering-bs/

The undergraduate curriculum in mechanical engineering (ME) is very broad and flexible. The curriculum comprises a ME core of fundamental concepts, plus a design/professional-practice stem, plus 15 credit hours of free electives. The program prepares students to be problem solvers and to contribute to a wide range of industries and businesses, or to go on for further study in graduate school. There is a strong emphasis in the ME program on design, creativity, and hands-on learning. Due to the wide range of career choices open to MEs, the program incorporates courses in electronics, materials science, computer programming, and manufacturing. The large number of free elective hours allows students to pursue minors and certificates throughout the Institute, or to specialize in areas within ME. The flexibility also helps students to pursue a variety of special programs including co-op, internships, study abroad, and undergraduate research. Program Educational Objectives The faculty of the Woodruff School strives to continuously improve our undergraduate programs in mechanical engineering. The educational objectives reflect the needs, and have been reviewed by, among others, the Advisory Board of the Woodruff School, the faculty, and the students. Our graduates will be recognized leaders in ME-related fields or other career paths, including industry, academe, government, and non-governmental organizations. Our graduates will be global collaborators, leading and participating in culturally diverse teams, who fearlessly discover and apply new knowledge and engineering practices that have a world-wide impact. Our graduates will be adaptive learners who continue to grow professionally by obtaining professional registration or certification, or by earning post-graduate degrees. Our graduates will be entrepreneurially minded innovators who have a positive economic and social impact on their communities, the nation, and society as a whole.
