Disclaimer: I am not a college planner
There are many excellent universities with highly ranked Environmental Engineering programs in California including - USC, UC Davis, UC Irvine, UC Berkeley, UC Riverside, UC San Diego and San Diego State to name a few. In Oregon, Oregon State University and Washington, University of Washington. Many of these also have Environmental Sciences programs. The University of Redlands in California has a highly regarded Environmental Studies program that is worth considering. I would also explore if the Claremont Colleges have a program that fits with your interests.
Good luck as you continue your research and decide where to apply to college.

Caryn recommends the following next steps:

Seek out a college planner to advise you in the application process

Thank you comment icon Staying within your home state is going to have some advantages. I got my B.S. Environmental Engineering from University of Central Florida, which has a highly regarded program, and we had a professional relationship with Texas A&M in College Station for air pollution abatement. If you're considering a post-graduate specialization, consider schools with strong programs for your passion with regard to air, water, and earth and clean-up versus abatement technologies ... all are needed. All the best to you for great success no matter which way you go. Drew Givens

I would suggest CalPoly San Luis Obispo, CalPoly Humboldt, or UC Davis. All are in California and have well respected programs. I know CalPoly SLO has a five year which is treated like a masters. Also, the towns where they are located are actually very nice depending what you are looking for as a place to live. I have hired and worked with people from all of the above universities and greatly respect their programs.

I am currently working on my own degree in Energy and Sustainability Policy at Pennsylvania State University through their World Campus (Online). Their College of Earth and Mineral Sciences has a lot of programs that might interest you in this topic. Read through the descriptions to see if any of them strike your fancy! I have loved all of my classes and professors here. Highly recommend!
