Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering and Landscape Architecture

Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering and Landscape Architecture


The BS in Environmental Engineering and Landscape Architecture combines two important disciplines that deal with the complex interaction between the natural and the built environment. Both professions, environmental engineering and landscape architecture, have critical functions that are essential in the development of society in terms of planning and designing more sustainable cities.  The combination of these two professions creates great synergy and seeks to expose engineering students to the conceptual and practical content of landscape planning.

Graduates from this degree will be prepared to imagine and create projects that can be translated into reality providing solutions to address the world’s growing challenges by designing clean and sustainable environments and green infrastructure.

Innovative Curriculum

Students completing the combined major Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering and Landscape Architecture will receive a rigorous engineering training education, enabling a high level of engineering knowledge as well as exposure to a broad range of landscape architectural topics and design experiences.​

Students have the option of selecting from several minors to complement their degree and personalize their path. Students can select from minors in the department, in other engineering departments, or from across the university.

Experiential Learning

Experiential learning is the heart of a Northeastern education, combining rigorous coursework with hands-on experience in the classroom, in the lab, and in the field—locally and abroad. With our signature cooperative education (co-op) program, students typically gain six months of work experience integrated as part of the educational program. Both five-year, three-co-op and four-year, two-co-op program options are available.
