Undergraduate Curriculum Information

Two Environmental Engineering degree options are offered at Yale.

  1. B.S. in Environmental Engineering: This degree is for students who desire a strong background in environmental engineering leading to a career in the field.
  2. B.A. in Engineering Sciences (Environmental): This degree is intended for students whose careers will involve, but not be dominated by, the skills of environmental engineering. The B.A. program is appropriate for those contemplating a career in which scientific and technological problems can play an important role, as is often the case in law, business, medicine, or public service.

Examples of typical course sequences are presented below.  Consultation with the program’s Director of Undergraduate Studies is expected to ensure the correct courses are taken by each enrolled student. 
The Yale College requirements for the B.A. and B.S. degrees can be found here. The specific Environmental Engineering degree requirements are detailed here.

B.S. in Environmental Engineering Typical Course Sequence

Course Sequence for students who start with MATH 112

This program requires 12 technical term courses beyond the 9 prerequisite courses (MATH 112, MATH 115, ENAS 151 (or MATH 120), ENAS 194, CHEM 112 & 113 (or 114 & 115) with 116L & 117L (or CHEM 118 & 119L), PHYS 180, PHYS 181, and MCDB 120 or other equivalent introductory biology course).  Alternative General Chemistry sequences are listed in the footnote below.
