Sanitary Engineering

Beginning with a foundation skills training in math, engineering, and safety, the Sanitary Engineering curriculum covers the design and construction of water supply systems, water treatment plants, sewerage systems, sewage treatment plants, and irrigation. Sanitary engineers seeking employment at a construction company, public works department, or an engineering/architectural firm benefit most from the coursework and training.

Take advantage of on-the-job training opportunities to apply the skills learned in the program. Students should have a high school diploma or GED Equivalent Certificate upon enrollment. Those who successfully complete the program can:

  • Explain the principles associated with linear surveying, transit surveying, topographic surveying, hydrographic surveying and city surveying, and the related engineering applications and operations.
  • Utilize the principles of chemistry and bacteriology as they apply to water treatment and purification.
  • Design and coordinate the construction of projects and systems related to the environment.
