Undergraduate Environmental Science

As the globe becomes more industrialized, the quality of the environment becomes a great concern. The EAS program is a great place to learn about how to make an impact in this crucial area. EAS students are involved in policy and media-related environmental activities throughout the United States, as well as air and water quality research with Tech faculty.
