Environmental engineering at Purdue?

I know that Purdue doesn't have environmental engineering as a major. But would it be possible to major in another engineering field like civil engineering and take environmental science class along with it? And how hard would it be to combine this with a minor in spanish? Please help a stressed high schooler.

    The civil engineering department has environmental engineering already.


    Also, here's a curriculum flow chart: https://engineering.purdue.edu/CE/Academics/Underg...

    You should be fine combining a minor in Spanish. Some credits for the minor may fit into the general education if Purdue requires a language requirement. Worse case scenario you take a summer class or two. Remember that most engineering students take 4 1/2 to 5 years to graduate, so there's no hurry.

    Also, I would not worry about this too much. Nothing is set in stone. You may eventually find you prefer another field of engineering after your first year. Enjoy the moment!
