Bioenvironmental engineers solve human-related environmental issues by employing the principles of engineering and biotechnology along with the physical, chemical and biological sciences. Their efforts largely encompass initiatives to improve public health, recycling and waste disposal, water and air pollution, and other issues plaguing todays natural environment.The BE program at Rutgers gives students a broad and multi-disciplinary education in the fundamentals of bioenvironmental engineering as well as proactive learning opportunities to utilize classroom learning in applications and design. The program offers a wide range of courses to help students understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context. In order to successfully complete the program, students must actively engage in collecting, analyzing and interpreting data and must demonstrate methodological and computer skills. Students also graduate with the ability to effectively communicate complex issues both orally and in writing.
Four-Year Curriculum:Sophomore Year:
The five-year, dual-degree program in bioenvironmental engineering is offered by the School of Engineering in cooperation with the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS). This program allows a greater depth of specialization at the undergraduate level than can be achieved by completing the four-year program.
Students in the five-year program apply to SEBS, under whose jurisdiction they remain for the first two years. Assuming satisfactory progress, the students come under the academic jurisdiction of the School of Engineering for the remaining three years of the program. However, the students continue to affiliate with SEBS and must select humanities/social sciences electives to satisfy SEBS requirements. Four-year bioenvironmental engineering majors may apply to SEBS for transfer to the dual-degree, five-year program at any time prior to their fourth year.
Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.

No work experience is required.
"The Academic Excellence Scholarship can provide up to a 50 % reduction in tuition per semester. These scholarships will be renewed if the student maintains superior academic performance during each semester of their 3-year Bachelor programme. The scholarship will be directly applied to the student’s tuition fees."
Scholarships for students who are already attending the University of Reading.
The University of Amsterdam aims to attract the world’s brightest students to its international classrooms. Outstanding students from outside the European Economic Area can apply for an Amsterdam Merit Scholarship.
