Description: This paper deals with the Environmental Concepts held by Civil/Construction Engineering students and their concern towards the Environment. Based on a survey instrument adapted from The Environmental Resource Center (ERC), the mean and standard deviation of the responses were calculated. The average value was 224 which is considered in the Earth Watchdog category. The survey instrument was completed by students enrolled in a Hazardous Waste Management course and may measure the level at which pollution has touched the respondents lives. Specifically, many believe the environment in which they live is good and haven't been personally harmed by pollution. Others seemed convinced of the gravity of environmental problems, but also appear to realize the underlying cause may be human greed and selfishness.

This paper discusses the findings of the investigation and suggests future actions which may be undertaken.
