Message from the Chair

It is my pleasure to welcome you at our Environmental Engineering Department at Texas A&M University-Kingsville. We are one of few stand-alone departments nationwide that offer a comprehensive education in environmental engineering at the Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral levels. Our undergraduate program is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). We offer a Fast-Track program with unique opportunities for our highly motivated undergraduate students who want to earn a master’s degree in less time. Our graduate programs have achieved wide recognition with research programs that are the forefront of the environmental engineering technology. I feel honored to lead this extraordinary department. Please feel free contact us for any additional information” Dr. David Ramirez

Environmental Engineering Career Outlook

According to Fortune magazine, one of the hottest career paths for the next ten years is expected to be in environmental engineering. As part of this increase, the U.S. will begin exporting environmental expertise to overseas markets to sustain this job growth. Environmental engineers will be called upon to develop creative solutions to balance economic growth and ecosystem preservation as coastal and inland development accelerates. The article, "Hot Careers for the Next 10 years" puts the growth rate of demand for environmental engineers (at 54%) even higher than that of information systems managers, software engineers, and systems analysts. Environmental engineers will be expected to prevent problems and introduce new technologies that promote sustainable development as global expansion takes off in the Pacific Rim and elsewhere.

At A&M Kingsville, we offer programs in developing interdisciplinary specialties, as well as in the more traditional areas of Environmental Engineering. Several modern engineering buildings contain environmental laboratories, including a High Performance Computing Center, state of the art instrumentation for evaluating water and air quality parameters, and workspace for students and faculty.
