WPI’s interdisciplinary Environmental Engineering (EVE) program offers students an exciting opportunity to focus their technical capabilities on evolving science and engineering that affects human quality of life all over the world—and can simultaneously help preserve and restore areas in which they work. With topics for research ranging from water quality preservation to contaminated site remediation, and opportunities to work in outdoor settings and communities as well as in laboratories with professors who are leaders in their fields, both graduate and undergraduate students can grow within this vital and burgeoning field.

Following the WPI educational model of theory and practice, EVE student projects provide unique, hands-on opportunities to explore the multifaceted considerations surrounding environmental engineering problems on local and global levels, and to improve living conditions in the subject areas.
