Students and faculty joining our program are excited to engage in courses, research, and service to help meet the needs of the world and engineer sustainable futures.

Graduate and undergraduate students in ERE are engaged in research that advances knowledge in our 3 focus areas. Students are part of an intelligent, active, and friendly cohort with a vibrant and internationally recognized faculty. Students lead and serve in campus governance, clubs, and sports, and thereby nurture and build highly valued character traits. We have an EAC/ABET accredited Environmental Resources Engineering program. Student training involves a modern, hands-on, design-focused curriculum. We have dedicated laboratory spaces, advanced classroom technology, dynamic teaching approaches, and a suite of gorgeous and challenging field sites. We love our ERE program for its ability to provide the individualized training of a small college along with the big university features via our SUNY and Syracuse University partnerships.

A Leading Program

Our departmental mission is to engage in teaching, research and service to advance environmental resources engineering practices and meet the needs of the world. Faculty strengths are in ecological engineering, geospatial engineering, water resources engineering, and the broader field of environmental resources engineering. Teaching includes innovative class, lab, and field exercises in foundational and advanced engineering topics, where our flexible curriculum allows students to focus on traditional or novel engineering practices. Students receive a well-balanced education, including courses that allow students to see the social, economic, and environmental impacts of engineering practice, fundamental engineering and environmental engineering courses, and specialized courses that capture the breadth of their field of study. The ERE department is internationally recognized for coupling research and service, and many ERE courses to address community needs. The ERE department provides unparalleled mentoring to train students in engineering science and design so they can join our alumni as leaders in professional practice and research.
