Environmental Engineering Sciences: Welcome

UF's Department of Environmental Engineering Sciences (EES) with the Department of Civil & Coastal Engineering (CCE) comprise the UF Engineering School of Sustainable Infrastructure & Environment. EES + CCE = ESSIE

10 Things to Get You Started @ the Libraries

  1. Contact me, your personal librarian, if you have any questions - research help, literature searches, instruction requests, suggestions for our collection, etc.
  2. Bookmark the Science Library and follow us
  3. When you're off campus, make sure to use the UF VPN to get access to all the Libraries have to offer - journals, books, and databases.
  4. Need articles? Search a database! Find ones appropriate for your research on the Journal Articles Tab of this guide.
  5. Looking for a book? Click on the Books & E-Books Tab. Links to ebooks and journals we own can also be found there. You can also renew your items and check your library account online.
  6. Need something UF doesn't own? Use Interlibrary Loan to request it and we'll get it for you using our global library network.
  7. Need a course text? Use Course Reserves to access the textbooks, readings, and other resources for your classes.  
  8. Want to stay organized? Keep track of your references and generate bibliographies with a RefWorks or EndNote Basic account.
  9. More than just books! Reserve a study room or check out all the technology we have to offer. 
  10. Need to print or scan? MSL has B&W, Color, and Plotter printers. Print costs range from $0.08/page - $3.00/foot and can be found here: https://print.at.ufl.edu/help/pricing/. Scanners are located on the 1st & 2nd floors.‚Äč 

EES Research Institutes, Centers & Labs

UF Environmental Engineering Sciences is committed to providing quality educational programs in environmental science and engineering. It conducts a nationally recognized environmental research program to contribute substantially to the benefit Florida, the nation and the earth. Undergraduate, graduate and certificate programs are available.

The Environmental Engineering Sciences department includes research institutes, centers, & labs.

The list includes:

UF Water Institute: established in 2006, this interdisciplinary institute is committed to addressing Florida issues while being recognized for providing solutions, science, and education for national and global water resource problems.  

Center for Environmental Policy: established in 1991, this center is dedicated to conducting research, teaching, and service that addresses the interface of energy, ecology, and economics and to establishing sustainable environmental policies and management frameworks.

Howard T. Odum Center for Wetlands: established in 1973, focuses on both basic ecological research on wetlands as well as their sustainable use in meeting environmental management needs.

Particle Engineering Research Center (PERC): established in 1998, the ultimate mission is to serve mankind with the advancement of particle science and technology through applications that will improve and enhance sustainable societal well-being, including economic health, quality of life, and the environment.

Water Reclamation and Reuse Laboratory (WR2 Lab): identifies the challenges of purifying wastewater for irrigation, power generation, lake management, and myriad other reuse applications.

Natural Area Teaching Laboratory (NATL): established circa 1944, is dedicated to teaching students and the public about ecology and biotic diversity.

Environmental Systems Commercial Space Technology Center (ES CSTC or Center): is to develop technologies for use in long-duration human space flight, while at the same time also serving as a catalyst for current, 'real-life,' commercial application of the technologies developed.
