Program Overview

The environmental engineering technology (EVT) curriculum may be pursued on either a full-time or part-time basis with day and evening classes available. Students typically start fall semester, but may enter the program at any point during the academic calendar. Part-time students may pursue the degree at a rate they desire; however, a minimum of 6 hours of course work each semester is recommended. In all, students completing the degree requirements will earn an Associate of Applied Science degree in environmental engineering technology.
