Global climate change, energy security, ecological degradation, environmental threats to human health, and resource scarcity are critical sustainability challenges for the 21st century. Sustainability is based upon the ability to meet societal needs within the context of economic and ecological constraints. This dual degree provides the tools necessary to help meet those needs. The program trains graduate students to protect, restore, and create engineered and natural systems that are socially, environmentally, and economically sustainable. Graduates have the engineering and sustainability foundations to command jobs domestically and internationally with engineering consulting firms, research and development labs in the private and public sectors, government agencies, and NGOs.
