Are you worried about worldwide environmental issues, like global warming, automobile emissions and ozone depletion? Want to do something about it? Consider studying Environmental Engineering at University of Detroit Mercy. As an environmental engineer, you’ll use the principles of biology and chemistry to develop solutions to environmental problems, truly making the world a better place.  




Great Things At Detroit Mercy

  • All engineering students are required to complete three semesters of co-op — actual, paid work — that allow them to graduate with real industry experience.
  • The Five-Year Bachelor/Master’s Program lets qualified students save a year of time (and tuition!) in getting that highly sought after degree.
  • All courses are taught by faculty members — not teaching assistants or graduate students.
  • Small class sizes — our average student-to-teacher ratio is 11:1; that means plenty of individualized attention aimed at making sure our students succeed.
  • In the tradition of our Jesuit and Mercy sponsors, Detroit Mercy offers a well-rounded education. We don’t just teach engineering; we create community leaders.

Your Boundless Future

Environmental Engineering students at Detroit Mercy receive a diverse education, with many classes in Civil Engineering as well. This leaves them open to many career possibilities upon graduation, compared to other environmental engineering programs. For students who do want a more deeply specialized program, the Five-Year Bachelor/Master’s program is a great option!
