Energy and Environmental Systems Concentration


Environmental scientists collect data samples for air, soil, water and other materials to identify environmental impacts for studies and surveys. These samples help to resolve environmental threats, develop plans and provide guidance to ensure quality regulation and manage natural resources.

Energy production is dependent upon the sustained stewardship of air, land, and water resources. Environmental scientists, consultants, and reclamation planners use their knowledge of our natural resources to protect the environment during energy development. 


Interests include:

  • Energy (Fossil Fuels and Renewables)

  • Biology 

  • Environmental regulation

  • Ecology 

  • Watershed management

  • Plants and Ecosystems

  • Public Policy
