Students with engineering majors in CEIE, BIOE, SEOR, and non-engineering majors in Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science and Policy, Geography and Geoinformation Science, and Geology are especially encouraged to consider this offering. The minor prepares students through additional coursework for subsequent graduate studies in water and environmental engineering at Mason or elsewhere, and for employment in environmental engineering, although the minor by itself does not constitute an engineering qualification.
Eight credits of coursework must be unique to the minor and students must complete all coursework with a minimum GPA of 2.00. For policies governing all minors, see AP.5.3.4 Minors.
