    Be aware Environmental Engineering does not have a good reputation among Engineers.

    If you MUST get a degree in Environmental Engineering, make sure the degree is ABET-accredited so that you can (relatively) easily get a PE Engineering license. Miami and Drexel's programs are ABET accredited. RI and Boston's programs are not accredited.

    if you're interested in marine studies I would go with RI and Miami. If you're only interested in the environmental engr. aspect then drexel is fine. If you're interested in going the EPA way or environmental law I would say Boston.

    If you're interested in ranks, you may want to google environmental eng. ranking.
